The Hawkesbury Guineas is a Group 3 race for three-year-olds run on Hawkesbury Gold Cup Day in Sydney during the autumn racing carnival.

The meeting’s headline race is the Group 3 Hawkesbury Gold Cup (1600m) for milers and the Hawkesbury Guineas is one of two other Group 3 status races on the card along with the Godolphin Crown (1300m) for fillies and mares.

The Hawkesbury Guineas is run over 1400m and the three-year-olds in the field face off at set weights plus penalties for a share in the $200,000 in prize money.

Horses in the Hawkesbury Guineas field may come via a number of different Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival lead-up races including the Group 2 Arrowfield 3YO Sprint (1200m) held at Randwick during ‘The Championships’.

Good follow-up races could include those during the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival including the Group 2 QTC Cup (1300m) and the Hawkesbury Guineas – QTC Cup double was recently achieved by Spill The Beans (2016). The Group 2 Queensland Guineas (1600m) is another Brisbane race run during the winter for Hawkesbury Guineas graduates and in 2016 Denmagic ran second in both races.

The 2018 Hawkesbury Guineas ran on Saturday April 28, 2018 and was won by the Chris Waller-trained Sambro.

Hawkesbury Guineas History

The Hawkesbury Guineas was run for the first time in 2000 and won by Hire. A number of quality gallopers have since taken out the race including Alverta (2007), Neeson (2010) and most famously Chautauqua.

It began as a Listed race before gaining its current Group 3 status in 2014. Originally the event was run as a handicap race, but from 2006 onwards the Hawkesbury Guineas has been held under set weights plus penalties. The distance was also increased from 1200m to 1400m in 2006 and in 2015 it ran at Rosehill Racecourse instead of Hawkesbury Racecourse.
