The Ladbrokes 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 Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas took place on Saturday 13 October , 2018.

Each year the Caulfield Guineas field attracts a smart line-up of three-year-olds, with colts and geldings dominating the line-up as the fillies tend to stick to their own kind in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) at the same meeting.

Good lead-up races for gallopers heading into the Caulfield Guineas field include Sydney’s Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes, which produced all three winners from 2014-16, and the Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m) run a fortnight before the Group 1.

The 2018 Caulfield Guineas field of final acceptances and barrier draw are released by Racing Victoria on October 9, 2018 so stay tuned.
