Victoria Derby awaits Moonovemanhattan after Moonee Valley Vase win

The 2014 Caulfield Guineas is a Group 1 race open to three-year-old horses that is held during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival in October each year. Run over a distance of 1,600 metres, the Caulfield Guineas is worth a total of $1 million in prize money. The Caulfield Guineas is run under set-weights conditions and takes place on the first day of the Caulfield Spring Racing Carnival. The Caulfield Guineas is run on the same day as the Group 1 Caulfield Stakes, Thousand Guineas and the Toorak Handicap.

The first Caulfield Guineas took place back in 1881 when it was won by Wheatear. The race is regarded as one of the most important races for three-year-olds to win, and is renowned for being a stallion making race for colts. The Caulfield Guineas’ home track has always been Caulfield Racecourse; however the race was run at Flemington Racecourse for four years from 1940-1943. The Caulfield Guineas witnessed a dead heat in 1945 when it won by both Attley and Royal Gem.

The Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude is regarded as the best lead-up race to the Caulfield Guineas, with Anacheeva (2010) taking out the Caulfield Guineas Prelude and Caulfield Guineas double. Winners of the Caulfield Guineas do not often go on to perform well in races such as the Caulfield Cup or the Melbourne Cup, however, it is often a good guide to how the three-year-olds will perform in the upcoming Group 1 Cox Plate.

Notable winners of the Caulfield Guineas throughout the years include Heroic (1924), Ajax (1937), High Caste (1939), Tulloch (1957), Storm Queen (1966), Vain (1969), Surround (1976), Luskin Star (1977), Manikato (1978), Red Anchor (1984), Mahogany (1993), Redoute’s Choice (1999), Show A Heart (2000), Lonhro (2001), Weekend Hussler (2007), Whobegotyou (2008) and Starspangledbanner (2009).

Caulfield Guineas Field

The Caulfield Guineas Field is only ever assembled of the very best three year olds in the country and it’s certainly not a race for horses which are unproven. It’s crucial that the runners have shown their true ability, not just promise before the Caulfield Guineas as any pretenders will be found out very quickly. The Mile is arguably the greatest test in horse racing, too long to be a sprint but too short to be a staying test, the perfect distance to uncover a true champion. Adding to this is the set weight factor, this means it’s down to class, desire and ability alone with every horse given its fair chance.

The Caulfield Guineas field is made up of 16 runners every year with four emergencies on standby. Given that nominations are received from all over the country there is always a top notch bunch of thoroughbreds lining up in the stalls in October. When they jump the prize at the end of the Caulfield trek is worth $1 million, further ensuring interest from the very best stables.

Caulfield Guineas Form Guide

The Caulfield Guineas Form Guide can often be a lot easier to read for punters then many other Group 1 events. While there are still a couple of avenues the horses can come through there is a main channel allowing people to get a good sight of the horse in similar company. The Caulfield Guineas is part of a series involving the Caulfield Guineas Preview and the Caulfield Guineas Prelude. For some horse these races are their only option to make the field while for others they could simply be good lead up tests. Either way the three-year-olds will race against many of the same horse they’ll then face in the main event.

Obviously the Caulfield Guineas Form Guide isn’t completely black and white though, some horse do use different earlier races and there are always a couple of unknowns lurking in the stalls . Having said that the 1600m around Caulfield with set weight makes it a genuine test and every horse should have their chance if good enough.

Caulfield Guineas Betting

Caulfield Guineas Betting is always extremely popular and online bookmakers say there is massive turnover on the race every year. The reason for this in part is due to the conditions of the race, punters can bet with confidence on the back of sound form lines leading into the event.  Handicap events by their very nature are made to try and even out the field so weight for age contests treat every horse in an equal nature. That means punters can look at the runners purely on their merits and make a decision based upon class, speed and preparation alone.

Having said this it’s also worth remembering just how talented the field is so Caulfield Guineas betting is certainly no sure fire winner. There are always a few genuine chances with a clear cut favourite not an overly common sight. Whichever way you look at it though the Caulfield Guineas is made for punters and there are few races that give you quite the same level of confidence.

Caulfield Guineas Odds

Given the nature of the race you can imagine that the Caulfield Guineas Odds are always going to be quite generous. With a field of horses that are representing the very top three year olds in the country there is no shortage of talent on offer. This means there are a range of genuine chances and as such a range of good betting options. Bookmakers battle to deliver the best markets on the Caulfield Guineas and this is always good news for you as a punter.

Every now and again there will be a superstar in the mix and this can still be a good thing if you’re placing a bet. For the favourite backers you can take solace in the fact the event suits horses with genuine class, if a horse truly is decidedly better than its opposition it will win the race. For those not keen to back the favourite the fact they are so short means you get even better Caulfield Guineas odd on the rest of the field.

Caulfield Guineas Tips

One thing you can always guarantee is there’ll be no shortage of Caulfield Guineas Tips floating around in the lead up to the event. Hundreds of people use a wide range of strategies and tactics to try and read the system and find themselves a winner on race day. All of the horses will have been well sighted in the lead up to the event so it’s interesting to see how one persons interpretation may differ from another’s. While one punter may see a third placed finish as a sign of good thing to come, another could justify it as proof it’s not up to a winning standard.

The solution then? Why not try and work out your Caulfield Guineas Tips for yourself, watch the lead up races and make your own assessment. Not only will you probably still give yourself as good a chance as any, you’ll have the added satisfaction of knowing the credit all belongs to you.

Caulfield Guineas Day

Caulfield Guineas Day is always a huge event and the feature race attracts a big group of horse racing enthusiasts from around Australia. It’s not just the Caulfield Guineas on offer either with two extra Group 1 races held on the same card. The Yalumba Stakes and the Toorak Handicap add extra venom to the card and give the crowd plenty of action.

As a result the atmosphere around Caulfield on the day is electric and the on track action is supplemented nicely with the array of sights and sounds off course as well. The Melbourne spring racing carnival is the greatest period of horse racing anywhere in Australia and Caulfield Guineas Day takes a worthy spot towards the front of it. The Melbourne Racing Clun spares not expense to cater for all demographics at the track so it’s definitely an event worth checking out live.

Caulfield Guineas Results

There have been a multitude of incredible results in the Caulfield Guineas and the race has provided no shortage of memories. It has a reputation of being the ‘stallion maker’ as colts who win this event instantly become sought after prospects at stud. That’s not just a throwaway line either, looking through the winners list and it’s a virtual who’s who of past and present stallions at stud in Australia. So good is the Caulfield Guineas that there’s plenty who didn’t even win the race but finished second or third who have managed to go on as well.

Some of the most recognisable examples of this are Octagonal, third in 1995. Encosta De Lago, third in 1996.General Nediym, third in 1997. Show A Heart, winner in 2000. Lonhro, winner in 2001.

The year 1999 was arguably the best all round result though with winner Redoutes Choice, second placed Testa Rossa and third placed Commands all going on with careers at stud.

Commands luck must run through his progeny as well, Under Command running third in 2004 and Court Command third in 2006.
