Randwick Guineas History

The Randwick Guineas has been run and won since the event inaugurated in 1935 as the Canterbury Guineas. It changed to the Randwick Guineas from 2006 onwards and offers the winner a ballot free ride into the Doncaster Mile and Australian Derby

The Randwick Guineas is the opening leg of the Sydney Three Year Old Triple Crown series of races held during the autumn. The second leg is the Rosehill Guineas followed by the Australian Derby held during The Championships over the mile and a half in April.

The race has undergone a number of distance changes over the years and has been run over the current 1600m mile format from 2006. It began as a Principle status race until 1980 when it gained its current Group 1 title.

There’s also been a number of different venue changes for the Randwick Guineas including previous editions run at Canterbury Park, Rosehill Gardens and Warwick Farm.
Notable recent Randwick Guineas winners include Weekend Hussler (2008), Mosheen (2012) and Le Romain (2016).
