The Australian Guineas is a Group 1 race for three-year-olds held at Flemington Racecourse in late February or early March during the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival.

The Australian Guineas is a 1600m set weights race and attracts the country’s best middle distance youngsters racing for a share in the $1 million in total prize money. It is the only Group 1 race at the meeting but is accompanied by a number of Group status support acts including the Group 2 Blamey Stakes (1600m).

Runners in the Australian Guineas field may come via earlier autumn lead-ups including the Group 3 Manfred Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield in early February and the Group 3 CS Hayes Stakes (1200m) for the three-year-old colts and geldings run a fortnight before at Flemington. The latest horses to win the CS Hayes Stakes – Australian Guineas double are Alligator Blood (2020) and Grunt (2018).

After the Australian Guineas the top three-year-olds may continue onto the Group 2 Alister Clark Stakes (2040m) held two weeks later at Moonee Valley. Alternatively the Australian Guineas graduates will head up to Sydney to chase the autumn riches of races like the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas (2000m) and Group 1 ATC Derby (2400m).

Another new feature race targeted by the best Australian Guineas three-year-olds is the Special Condition $5 million The All-Star Mile (1600m) held at varying racetracks around Melbourne. In 2019 the gun filly Mystic Journey completed the Australian Guineas – The All-Star Mile double at Flemington.

The 2021 Australian Guineas runs on Saturday February 27, 2021 at Flemington.

Australian Guineas History

Australian Guineas racing began in 1986 and in its short time on the track, has already become the third leg of the inaugural 1998 Australian Triple Crown for three year olds. As a result, the race distance was changed to 2000m between 1998 and 2000 and offered a total prize money of $750,000.

In 2001, the Australian Guineas returned to its original distance of 1600m and fillies were given an allowance of 2.5kg.

Notable recent Australian Guineas winners include Alligator Blood (2020), subsequent All-Star Mile winning filly Mystic Journey (2019), Shamus Award (2014), the filly Mosheen (2012), Apache Cat (2006) and Reset (2004).
