The Caulfield Guineas is a Group 1 race for three-year-olds held in mid-October during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. Offering $3 million in prize money, the 1600m race attracts the best young milers and promising staying types of the season. The race is featured on a massive day of Group 1 racing alongside the Toorak Handicap (1600m) and Caulfield Stakes (2000m) now run as the Might And Power Stakes.

The Thousand Guineas (1600m) for the fillies was previously held on the same day but since 2023 runs in mid to late November on its own end-of-spring feature race meeting.

In 2024 Caulfield Guineas Day takes place the weekend before Sydney’s $20 million The Everest race.

As a set weights race, colts and geldings are required to carry 55.5kg while fillies must carry 53.5kg. The Caulfield Guineas is regarded as a good lead-up race to the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley and the last Guineas graduate to back-up and win the weight-for-age classic was Shamus Award (3rd) in 2013.

The 2021 Caulfield Guineas form was franked with the winner Anamoe going on to run a devastatingly close second in that year’s Cox Plate results before returning the following autumn to win the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas (2000m) in 2022.

The 2022 Caulfield Guineas winner Golden Mile franked the form winning the Group 2 Callander-Presnell next start.

The 2023 Caulfield Guineas form was franked by the runner-up Veight who returned in the autumn of 2024 to run second in the Australian Guineas before winning the George Ryder Stakes in Sydney against the older horses.

The next edition of the Caulfield Guineas takes place on Saturday October 12, 2024.

Each year the Caulfield Guineas field attracts a smart line-up of three-year-olds, with colts and geldings dominating the line-up as the fillies tend to stick to their own kind in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) later in the season.

Good lead-up races for gallopers heading into the Caulfield Guineas field include Sydney’s Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes, which produced all three winners from 2014-16, and the Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m) run a fortnight before the Group 1. Note, the Stan Fox Stakes has now been replaced by the $1 million Group 2 Callander-Presnell (1600m) race held over a mile running after the Caulfield Guineas.

First run in 1881 when Wheatear won, the Caulfield Guineas was run at Flemington Racecourse briefly between 1940 and 1943.
