Global Glamour Wins 2016 Thousand Guineas for Waterhouse

Global Glamour Wins 2016 Thousand Guineas for Waterhouse

Sydney’s premier trainer Gai Waterhouse celebrated her maiden Thousand Guineas win with star filly Global Glamour scoring the interstate double on the quick back-up after the Flight Stakes in Sydney last Saturday.

Waterhouse enjoyed her ninth Flight Stakes win at Randwick, but today’s $500,000 Group 1 Schweppes Thousand Guineas (1600m) result was her first victory.

Completing the Flight Stakes – ...

The 2016 Thousand Guineas is one of the premier races for fillies held during the annual Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. Run on a Saturday in early – mid October on Caulfield Guineas Day, the Group 1 Thousand Guineas is a middle distance event run over 1600m by three-year-old fillies at set weights. Worth over $500 000 it is the female equivalent to the Caulfield Guineas for colts and geldings held on the same day.

The best lead-up races and guides to the Thousand Guineas are the Group 2 Edward Manifold Stakes (1600m) held at the start of October at Flemington and the Group 2 Thousand Guineas Prelude (1400m) the month before. The Edward Manifold – Thousand Guineas is a very popular betting double at the Spring Carnival because of the Edward Manifold’s history of producing Thousand Guineas winners. Fillies to win the double in recent years include Gallica (2008), Alinghi (2004) and Special Harmony (2003). The placegetters in the Manifold are also worth looking at for your Thousand Guineas bets, as Serious Speed (2007) and Miss Finland (2006) were both runner-up in this earlier event prior to claiming Thousand Guineas victory.

Irish Lights (2009) meanwhile is the last filly to complete the Prelude – Thousand Guineas double, but the Prelude has also produced recent Thousand Guineas winners Amicus (2nd in 2014) and Stay With Me (6th in 2015).

2016 Thousand Guineas Betting

Futures 2016 Thousand Guineas betting markets on the likely Thousand Guineas field are now out at Ladbrokes.com.au with the Top 20 chances listed below.

Fillies that ran well in lead-up races in Melbourne like the Edward Manifold Stakes and Thousand Guineas Prelude usually sit top of the Thousand Guineas odds at bookmakers like Ladbrokes.com.au each spring.

Runners in the Thousand Guineas can follow the race with a run in the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m) on Derby Day and then the top prize, the $1 million Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m) at Flemington on the first Thursday of November. Many dominant fillies have seen success in all three events over the years. It is a good idea when betting on these later carnival races to watch out for the winners and placegetters in the Thousand Guineas.

From 2006 – 2015 the favourites in Thousand Guineas betting saluted for the punters five times, most recently with Guleph (2013), so tipping the best in betting has had a 50% strike rate of paying out in the past decade.

It is also important when betting on the Thousand Guineas to look at the records of the trainers and jockeys in the race. Sydney trainers and their interstate raiders have a strong recent record in the race. David Hayes has prepared three recent Thousand Guineas winners including Stay With Me (2015), so any in-form filly from his Lindsay Park stables is worth a look at when doing the Thousand Guineas form.

Another factor that impacts the Thousand Guineas odds is the barrier draw. Just one Thousand Guineas winner since 2004 has jumped from a double-digit barrier with Serious Speed (10 of 14 in 2007), so looking for the class runners drawn closer to the rails is a good Thousand Guineas betting tip.

Thousand Guineas History

The Thousand Guineas was first run in 1946 when Sweet Chime was victorious. It began as a principal race run over eight furlongs, but was converted to 1600m in 1972 and reached Group 1 status in 1979.
