The Australian Guineas is a Group 1 race for three-year-olds held at Flemington Racecourse in 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 the Group 3 Frances Tressady Stakes (1400m) and the Group 3 Autumn Handicap (1400m).

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 horse to win the CS Hayes Stakes – Australian Guineas double was 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).

The 2019 Australian Guineas runs on Saturday March 2, 2019 at Flemington.

2019 Australian Guineas Nominations

The very first Australian Guineas nominations are taken in late January, over a month out from the Group 1 autumn feature taking place in March. Early Australian Guineas entries often attract in excess of 100 hopefuls and are narrowed down at first acceptance stage a month later.

The 2019 Australian Guineas nominations will be released around Monday January 29, 2019 and will be published below as soon as available.

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 Shamus Award (2014), the filly Mosheen (2012), Apache Cat (2006) and Reset (2004).
