2019 Caulfield Guineas Results

  • 1st: #5 Super Seth
  • 2nd: #3 Alligator Blood
  • 3rd: #18e Groundswell



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 October 12, 2019 and was won by the Anthony Freedman-trained Super Seth.
