2021 Rosehill Guineas Results

  • 1st: #3 Mo'unga
  • 2nd: #11 Sky Lab
  • 3rd: #15 Montefilia



Note: The 2021 Rosehill Guineas was postponed until Saturday March 27th, 2021 due to heavy rainfall and unsafe track conditions at Rosehill Gardens. 

The Rosehill Guineas is one of the premier Group 1 events for three-year-olds held as part of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival. Conducted by the Australian Turf Club (ATC), it is run at Rosehill Gardens in March on Golden Slipper Stakes Day. The meeting features a total of five Group 1 races with the Rosehill Guineas joined by the: Group 1 $3.5 million Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m), the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m), the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) and the Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m).

Restricted to three-year-olds the Rosehill Guineas field is run over a staying trip of 2000 metres and offers $600,000 in total prize money. The traditional autumn lead-up into the event is the Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) held a fortnight earlier over 400m shorter. The Randwick Guineas – Rosehill Guineas double has recent been achieved by the likes of Metal Bender (2009), It’s A Dundeel (2013) and The Autumn Sun (2019).

Most runners out of the Rosehill Guineas will continue onto ‘The Championships’ at Royal Randwick in April for a shot at the Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m). Criterion (2014) was the last horse to complete the Rosehill Guineas – ATC Australian Derby double.

As one of the best three-year-old events at the carnival, the Rosehill Guineas always attracts a fine field of contenders and has been won by some true turf champions including Sky Heights (1999), Tie The Knot (1998), Octagonal (1996), Danewin (1995), Naturalism (1992) and Sky Chase (1988), while equine superstars Phar Lap (1929) and Kingstown Town (1980) also recorded impressive victories in the Group 1 event.

The Randwick Guineas – Rosehill Guineas – Australian Derby races make up the coveted Sydney 3YO Triple Crown of races.

The 2021 Rosehill Guineas ran on Saturday March 27, 2021 as part of the rescheduled Golden Slipper Day card in Sydney and was won by the favourite Mo’unga.

Rosehill Guineas History

The Rosehill Guineas began as a principal race run over seven furlongs and the inaugural winner was Electric Wire. The race distance was increased to nine furlongs in 1915 before a further increase occurred in 1948, bringing the length to a testing 10 furlongs. In 1973 the distance was converted to 2000m and after the race was not held in 1978, the Rosehill Guineas was elevated to Group 1 status in 1980 when the almighty Kingston Town was victorious.

In 2021 the original Golden Slipper Stakes race day including the Rosehill Guineas was abandoned due to heavy rainfall and unsafe track conditions and postponed to the following Saturday.

Rosehill Guineas Betting

Rosehill Guineas betting is normally very interesting and it is often surprisingly tough to pick the winner of the Group 1 event. There is generally one horse that starts the Rosehill Guineas as a short-priced favourite, but only a handfull of favourites have won the race in the last thirty years.

Talented gallopers Bounty Hawk (1984), Noble Peer (1985), Veandercross (1992), Intergaze (1997), Universal Prince (2001), Teranaba (2007) and Shoot Out (2010) were all beaten as short-priced favourites, while Ring Joe (1987), Star Of Maple (1994), Diatribe (2000), Sale Of Century (2001) and De Beers (2006) all managed to score upset wins in the Group 1 event.

Recent favourites in Rosehill Guineas betting to salute for the punters include It’s A Dundeel (2013), Criterion (2014), D’Argento (2018) and The Autumn Sun (2019) who started at an odds-on quote of $1.30 in what would be his swansong race. Rosehill Guineas odds open weeks in advance of the race at online bookmakers including Ladbrokes.com.au.

Rosehill Guineas Records
Race Record (at current distance): 1:59.99 set by Danewin in 1995 and equalled by Octagonal in 1996.
