The Australian Guineas is a Group 1 race for three-year-olds held at Flemington Racecourse in early March during the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival

The Australian Guineas is a 1600m set weights race and attracts the country’s best middle distance youngsters racing for a share in the $750,000 in total prize money. It is the only Group 1 race at the meeting but is accompanied by the Group 3 Frances Tressady Stakes (1400m) and the Group 3 Shaftesbury Avenue Handicap (1400m).

Runners in the Australian Guineas field may come via earlier autumn lead-ups including the Group 3 Manfred Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield in early February and the Group 3 CS Hayes Stakes (1200m) for the three-year-old colts and geldings run a fortnight before at Flemington. The latest horse to win the CS Hayes Stakes – Australian Guineas double was Wandjina (2015).

After the Australian Guineas the top three-year-olds may continue onto the Group 2 Alister Clark Stakes (2040m) held two weeks later at Moonee Valley.

Australian Guineas History

Australian Guineas racing began in 1986 and in its short time on the track, has already become the third leg of the inaugural 1998 Australian Triple Crown for three year olds. As a result, the race distance was changed to 2000m between 1998 and 2000 and offered a total prize money of $750,000.

In 2001, the Australian Guineas returned to its original distance of 1600m and fillies were given an allowance of 2.5kg.

Notable recent Australian Guineas winners include Shamus Award (2014), the filly Mosheen (2012), Apache Cat (2006) and Reset (2004).
