The Caulfield Guineas 2016 is a Group 1 race for three-year-olds held on the first day of the Caulfield Spring Racing Carnival. Offering $1 million in prize money, the 1600m race attracts the best young milers and promising staying types of the season. Held in early October the race is featured on a massive day of Group 1 races 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.
