Rosehill Guineas News
The Rosehill Guineas is one of the premier Group 1 events for three-year-olds held as part of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival. Conducted by the Australian Turf Club (ATC), it is run at Rosehill Gardens in March on Golden Slipper Stakes Day.

The traditional autumn lead-up into the event is the Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) held a fortnight earlier over 400m shorter. The Randwick Guineas – Rosehill Guineas double has recent been achieved by the likes of Metal Bender (2009) and It’s A Dundeel (2013).
Most runners out of the Rosehill Guineas will continue onto ‘The Championships’ at Royal Randwick in April for a shot at the Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m).
As one of the best three-year-old events at the carnival, the Rosehill Guineas always attracts a fine field of contenders and has been won by some true turf champions including Sky Heights (1999), Tie The Knot (1998), Octagonal (1996), Danewin (1995), Naturalism (1992) and Sky Chase (1988), while equine superstars Phar Lap (1929) and Kingstown Town (1980) also recorded impressive victories in the Group 1 event.
The Randwick Guineas – Rosehill Guineas – Australian Derby races make up the coveted Sydney 3YO Triple Crown of races.
The 2018 Rosehill Guineas ran on Saturday March 24, 2018 and was won by the Chris Waller-trained favourite D’Argento.

Rosehill Guineas History
The Rosehill Guineas began as a principal race run over seven furlongs and the inaugural winner was Electric Wire. The race distance was increased to nine furlongs in 1915 before a further increase occurred in 1948, bringing the length to a testing 10 furlongs. In 1973 the distance was converted to 2000m and after the race was not held in 1978, the Rosehill Guineas was elevated to Group 1 status in 1980 when the almighty Kingston Town was victorious.
