The Gold Coast Guineas is a 1200m sprint held annually at the Gold Coast Racecourse on AD Hollindale Stakes Day in early May. With total prize money of $150,000, the Gold Coast Guineas attracts a strong line-up of three-year-olds that could be Brisbane-bound over the Winter Racing Carnival. The Gold Coast Guineas shares its race card with the Group 2 Hollindale Stakes (1800m) as well as the Group 3 Ken Russell Memorial Classic (1200m) for two-year-olds.

For the 2020 edition of the Gold Coast Guineas, the prize money was down to $125,000 and there is was no 2020 A.D. Hollindale Stakes due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Gold Coast Guineas field attracts both local Queensland-trained gallopers as well as interstate visitors out of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival lead-up races. It is a good lead-up into the Group 3 Fred Best Classic (1400m) contested in Brisbane later in the month.

The 2021 Gold Coast Guineas ran on Saturday May 8, 2021 and was won by Team Snowden’s well-backed filly Marboosha.

2021 Gold Coast Guineas Nominations

The early Gold Coast Guineas Nominations 2021 close on the Monday of race week.

Gold Coast Guineas History

The Gold Coast Guineas was established in 2000, and as such lacks the long illustrious history of many more renowned races. However, it only took until 2008 for the race to be elevated to Group 3 status as a result of increasing prize money and prestige. Today, the Gold Coast Guineas is one of the more highly anticipated races on the Gold Coast racing calendar.

The inaugural running of the race, in 2000, was in March and held over 1400m, as opposed to the current 1200m (2006 onwards). One of the most notable winners of the Gold Coast Guineas is Make Mine Magic, who made the race his sixth straight win, impressive considering the horse had only 6 races under his belt.

Gold Coast Guineas results since the race’s inauguration in 2000 are listed below.

A new track record was set in the 2018 Gold Coast Guineas results by the filly Champagne Cuddles who won in a speedy 1:07.65.
