AJC Oaks History

Known as the AJC Oaks 1885-1894, AJC Adrian Knox 12F Stakes 1922-1959, AJC Adrian Knox Oaks Stakes 1960-1962, AJC Oaks 1963-1994, AJC Australian Oaks 1995-2001.
Run over 12 furlongs 1885-1894, 8 furlongs 1922-1945,10 furlongs 1946-1955, 12 furlongs 1956-1972, 2400 metres 1973 to the present day.
Group 1 status has been allocated since adoption of that ranking system in 1980.
No AJC Oaks, or equivalent race, was run between 1895 and 1921.

NSB-- "Non Stud Book" ("NTB" in Australian Stud Book) female lines not admitted into the Australian Stud Book because the pedigrees of the foundation mares were lost or otherwise unprovable. Herbert Wanklyn and A.F. Howarth compiled a list of such families in 1949, as did Douglas Barrie in the 1950s. These are different from the so-called Colonial families only in that they were not deliniated in the Bobinski and subsequent Shirai family tables.
