  • 1st: #3 Ole Kirk
  • 2nd: #10 Aysar
  • 3rd: #13 Grandslam



The Caulfield Guineas is a Group 1 race for three-year-olds held in mid-October during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. Offering $2 million in prize money, the 1600m race attracts the best young milers and promising staying types of the season. The race is featured on a massive day of Group 1 racing alongside the Toorak Handicap (1600m), Caulfield Stakes (2000m) and Thousand Guineas (1600m) for the fillies.

As a set weights race, colts and geldings are required to carry 55.5kg while fillies must carry 53.5kg. The Caulfield Guineas is regarded as a good lead-up race to the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley and the last Guineas graduate to back-up and win the weight-for-age classic was Shamus Award (3rd) in 2013.

The latest edition of the Caulfield Guineas took place on Saturday October 10, 2020 and was won by the Golden Rose winner Ole Kirk.
