Potential Oaks Start For Royal Descent After 2013 Adrian Knox Stakes Win

Royal Descent made light of her top weight, winning the Group 3 Adrian Knox Stakes at Royal Randwick racecourse today April 13, 2013.

The Redoute’s Choice filly won the race in front of Express Power, who placed second, and Unimpeachable, who finished in third.

Royal Descent has now won three of her six race starts and has earned close to $200,000 in prize money.

The three-year-old placed second in the Group 3 Keith Nolan Classic by a nose to Cameo last start, however, was able to claim her first Black Type win in today’s 2013 Adrian Knox Stakes.

Trainer Chris Waller will now have to decide whether or not to send Royal Descent to the Group 1 ATC Australian Oaks on April 20, 2013.

While his initial decision was not to run her in the race, Waller admits that today’s 2013 Adrian Knox Stakes win could change that plan.

“We’ll just see what (owner) Gerry Harvey says,” said Waller.

“The plan wasn’t (to go to the Oaks) but things change when you have wins like that.

“If she doesn’t go any further this prep she obviously has a lot to look forward to in the spring.”

Royal Descent was paying odds of $41 to win the ATC Australian Oaks at bookmaker.com.au prior to today’s win.

No-matter their decision, Waller was proud of the effort Royal Descent produced to win the 2013 Adrian Knox Stakes.

“With 59 kilograms it’s never easy and when you’re taking on Listed horses it’s very hard,” he said.

“(It was a) good effort to win this by as far as she has.”

Jockey Nash Rawiller was a board Royal Descent for today’s 2013 Adrian Knox Stakes win.

“Not sure what Chris is going to do because he was going to put her out,” Rawiller said.

“She’s given me no indication whatsoever that she’s beginning to train off.”

Royal Descent was paying odds of $6 to win the 2013 Adrian Knox Stakes at bookmaker.com.au.
