The Randwick Guineas is held at New South Wales’ premier track, Royal Randwick Racecourse, during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival in early to mid-March each year.

Run over 1600m and offering $1 million in prize money, the Randwick Guineas is open to all 3 year old horses. As a set weight race, colts and geldings carry 56.5kg and fillies must carry 54.5kg.

The Randwick Guineas replaced the 1900m Canterbury Guineas after 2005. The Randwick Guineas winner gains automatic qualification for both the Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m) and the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) held in April during Sydney’s ‘The Championships’.

Randwick Guineas Day features two Group 1 races with the marquee event supported by the Group 1 Canterbury Stakes (1300m). A host of other Group status races also take place at the meeting including the Group 2 Challenge Stakes (1000m) and two Group 2 status Golden Slipper Stakes lead-up races – the Reisling Stakes and Todman Stakes.

The major lead-up race to the event is the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m). Recent three-year-olds to complete the Hobartville Stakes – Randwick Guineas double include Kementari (2018), Hallowed Crown (2015), Dissident (2014) and Ilovethiscity (2011).

The best out of the Randwick Guineas field may continue onto the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas (2000m) run over more meters a fortnight later on Golden Slipper Stakes Day. It’s A Dundeel (2013) was the last horse to win the Randwick – Rosehill Guineas double.

The 2018 Randwick Guineas ran on Saturday March 10, 2018 and was won impressively by the Godolphin-trained favourite Kementari.

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).
