Australian Triple Crown

Click on the links to find more details on the three elite races that make up the Australian Triple Crown:


Today Australia?s Triple Crown consists of the Randwick Guineas, Rosehill Guineas and the AJC Australian Derby. Skilful horses to take out this Triple Crown include Imagele (1973), Martello Towers (1959), Moorland (1943) and Octagonal (1996). The original first-leg of the coveted Australian Triple Crown was the Canterbury Guineas. Each race is a step up in distance for the runners, testing their stamina and staying ability as well as their speed each time. All three races are Group One events for three-year-olds at set weights.

The first leg of the series is now the Group One Randwick Guineas. Run over a distance of 1600m, it is worth $550 000 and held at the Royal Randwick racecourse in Sydney mid-March.

The second leg of the series is the Group One Rosehill Guineas. Run over a distance of 2000m, it is worth $500 000 and held at the Rosehill Gardens racecourse in Sydney late-March.

The third and final leg of the series is the Group One AJC Australian Derby. Run over a distance of 2400m, it is the most lucrative race of the Triple Crown worth $1.3million and held at the Royal Randwick racecourse in Sydney early-April.
