Full Of Spirit has won the Group 3 Adrian Knox Stakes at Royal Randwick Racecourse today April 14, 2012.
The Flying Spur filly was having her first run in Australia after having her first eight race starts in New Zealand.
Full Of Spirit was paying odds of $2.70 to win the 2012 Adrian Knox Stakes at bookmaker.com.au.
Plumm sprinted home down the outside to nab second, while Secret Liason rounded out the placings in third.
Trainer Roger James felt the win was full of merit after a long trip from New Zealand just days ago.
“She only arrived at 11 o’clock on Wednesday night,” James said.
“I got a commission to buy her and I got huge support from my owners.
“It’s great to see them get rewarded.”
It now appears likely Full Of Spirit will go on to run in the Group 1 Australian Oaks next weekend.
“She’s not nominated for the oaks but today might give us a little bit of confidence,” James said.
“I think (she’s) a nice mixture of sprinting and speed.”
Jockey James McDonald rode Full Of Spirit in today’s 2012 Adrian Knox Stakes.
“She’s a beautiful filly and I’m thankful for the owners for bringing her over,” McDonald said.
“It was hard to get them to get her to come over but I’m glad they did.
“She relaxed and then she got travelling for it.”
Full Of Spirit has now won three of her nine race starts and has earned more than $100,000 in prize money.
