Queensland Guineas History

First raced in 1896 and won by College Cap, the Queensland Guineas was originally an 8 Furlong Principal race until 1973 when it was changed to 1600m. Shortly after in 1979 the race was elevated to Group 3 status until 1988 when it was once again raised to Group Two status. The Queensland Guineas was not held from 1942 to 1945, 1983 or in 1996. The fastest winning time since 1988 was recorded by Sizzling in 2013 with 1 minute 24.3 seconds while the slowest time was 1 minute 43.8 seconds by Insecure in 1998.

In 2013 the Queensland Guineas moved race days, from Stradbroke Handicap Day to Queensland Oaks Day. The race distance was also changed from 1600m to 1400m.
