Caulfield Guineas History

One of the oldest Group One races in Melbourne history, the Caulfield Guineas was first run in 1881. 

Originally run at Flemington during the War-time period, the Caulfield Guineas has since made its home at Caulfield and it has been the crowning achievement for numerous stallions which have gone on to have lucrative stud careers.

A mile journey since its inception, the Caulfield Guineas was given Group 1 status in 1979, when many of Australia’s top races became Group 1 level. That year, it was taken out by Runaway Kid after Manikato had won the year prior.

Known as a stallion-making race, the Guineas has been won by many of Australia’s best stallions, including the likes of All Too Hard, Lonhro and Redoute’s Choice.

It’s a good race for future betting guides, including the Victoria Derby. Caulfield Guineas winners have gone on to win the Derby on 16 occasions, but the most recent came in 2002 with Helenus.
