Sandown Guineas History

First run in 1957, the inaugural winner of the Sandown Guineas was Orient. The event originated as a Principal race over eight furlongs and for two years in 1968 and 1969 it was run over 10 furlongs before reverting back to the original distance. Up until 1967 it was a fillies only race and from its inauguration until 1964 the event was held at Caulfield racecourse before being moved to Sandown. A few years later when Australia adopted the metric system the length was converted to 1600m. The Sandown Guineas gained its Group 2 status in 1979.

Some more than handy types have claimed victory in the Sandown Guineas including Over (1999), Sedation (1998), King Ivor (1996) and Durbridge (1990), although the event doesn’t normally attract Group 1 quality runners. Sandown Guineas winners, place getters and winning times since 2000 are provided below.
