Tivaci Takes Out 2016 Sunshine Coast Guineas – Results

The 2016 Sunshine Coast Guineas is a Group 3 race held annually at Sunshine Coast Racecourse. The Sunshine Coast Guineas brings up the tailend of the Queensland Winter Racing Carnival, and represents some of the last black-type racing in Queensland before the break for the winter.

The Sunshine Coast Guineas is held on Caloundra Cup Day, alongside the listed Caloundra Cup (2400m) and the listed Glasshouse Handicap (1400m). Paying $125,000, the Sunshine Coast Guineas is not the richest race on the day (both listed events pay $175,000), however it does attract a quality field. A mile event raced over 1600m, entrants in the Sunshine Coast Guineas tend to be horses at the end of their winter campaign, looking to collect one last black-type trophy before resting for the winter.

The Group 2 Queensland Guineas (1400m) held at Eagle Farm on Queensland Oaks Day is considered a solid lead up race, along with the listed Daybreak Lover (1400m) held on Stradbroke Handicap Day.

The 2016 Sunshine Coast Guineas will be run on Saturday, July 2nd.

2016 Sunshine Coast Guineas Nominations

Sunshine Coast Guineas History

The Sunshine Coast Guineas ran as a listed race for the last time in 2012, as it was upgraded to Group 3 shortly after and ran as such for the 2013 edition. Prior to 2006, the race was unlisted; improving fields and its standing as a decent mile event led to the decision to upgrade its standing.

Notable winners of the Sunshine Coast Guineas include Shenzhou Steeds (2011), Diamondsondinside (2006) and Sunset (2000). Sunshine Guineas results since 2000 are listed below.
