The Group 2 2019 WA Guineas is one of the most anticipated events on the Western Australia racing calendar. Held at Ascot Racecourse in mid to late November, the WA Guineas is a 1600m middle distance event for three-year-olds at set weights worth a lucrative $500,000 in prize money. It is the first Group status race for three-year-olds held in Perth each season.

Runners in the WA Guineas may progress onto other Perth races run under the same conditions like the Group 3 Lee Steere Classic (1400m) a fortnight later in preparation for the premier set weights race held in Perth, the Group 1 WATC Derby (2400m) in March. Alternatively, the better three-year-olds out of the WA Guineas that season could back-up against the older horses in the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) on the same day as the Lee Steere Classic. Star filly Arcadia Queen was the last runner to complete the WA Guineas – Kingston Town Classic double, the then three-year-old taking out the Guineas by three lengths before smashing her older rivals by 4.5 lengths in the 2018 Kingston Town Classic.

The 2019 WA Guineas ran on Railway Stakes Day, Saturday November 23, 2019 , and was won in an upset by $31 shot War Saint.

WA Guineas History

The inaugural winner of the WA Guineas was Footmark in 1937. The event originated as a principal race of eight furlongs and remained the same until 1972 when the distance was converted to 1600m. The race reached Group 3 status in 1979 and then became a Group 2 event only two years later in 1981.

In 2003 the WA Guineas was held at Belmont Park Racecourse, which is the other major track in Perth.

A host of outstanding subsequent Group 1 winners won the WA Guineas during their three-year-old seasons including Playing God (2010), Ihtsahymn (2013) and Arcadia Queen (2018) who all beat home the older horses next-up in the Kingston Town Classic.
