Thousand Guineas

The 2019 Thousand Guineas is a Group 1 race that is held each year in October as part of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival at Caulfield Racecourse. The Thousand Guineas is open to three-year-old fillies only and is run over a distance of 1,600 metres. Run under set-weights conditions, the Thousand Guineas is now worth a lucrative $1 million in prize money having doubled in stakes in 2019.

The Thousand Guineas is held on Day 1 of the Caulfield Cup Carnival on Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas Day. The Thousand Guineas was originally held on the same day as the Caulfield Cup, but was moved to its own day in 1988, and reverted from the middle day of the carnival to the first day for the 2014 edition.

2019 Thousand Guineas Results

The Thousand Guineas was first run in 1946 when it was won by a horse called Sweet Chime. The race was held over a distance of eight furlongs until being changed to 1,600 metres in 1972 to coincide with the introduction of the metric system. Originally a Principal Race, the Thousand Guineas was given its Group 1 status in 1979. The Thousand Guineas has had one dead heat during its significant history. This occurred in 1963 when Heirloom and Anna Rose passed the post at the same time.

Horses that run in the Thousand Guineas often first compete in the Group 2 Edward Manifold Stakes which is held two weeks prior. Amphitrite (2018), Special Harmony (2003), Alinghi (2004) and Gallica (2008) have all claimed the Edward Manifold Stakes and Thousand Guineas double. Horses that run well in the Thousand Guineas can often be seen competing in races such as the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes and the Group 1 VRC Oaks during the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

Notable winners of the Thousand Guineas include Wenona Girl (1960), Toltrice (1972), Goleen (1984), Azzurro (1992), Miss Finland (2006) and Yosei (2010).

Thousand Guineas Field

The Thousand Guineas field is always made up of the top talent in three year old fillies with this particular race offering a great chance for trainers and owners to score a Group 1 win. That’s not to see the contest is easy, winning the Thousand Guineas takes a whole lot of talent, a perfect training effort and plenty of luck along the way. There is always a full field of 16 entered with emergencies on standby as spots for this race are hotly contested. That means horses are not only required to be 100 percent on race day, they also have to have done enough previously to warrant their inclusion as well.

The set weight means that all horses are treated identically and each one has just a good a chance as any. That makes barriers quite crucial with a wide gate quite a disadvantage depending on the horses running style. Having said that the Caulfield track is wide enough that a horse should get a run down the straight so long as the jockey has them in a half decent position.

2019 Thousand Guineas Field

Thousand Guineas Form Guide

Three year old races are quite good for punters, especially big Group 1’s like the Thousand Guineas. You can always get a good read on form leading up to the race with the top chances usually running around against each other in the lower grades. That is certainly the case for this event with a couple of races in particular standing out.

For Melbourne based horses the Group 2 Edward Manifold Stakes is a fantastic guide held a matter of weeks before the Thousand Guineas. It’s run at Flemington on Turnbull Stakes Day and always produces a good deal of runners backing up for this event. Looking further abroad a horse could also come south from the Sydney carnival. The Group 1 Flight Stakes is hosted at Randwick Racecourse and also has a history of producing Thousand Guineas winners.

Thousand Guineas Betting

Group 1 races always have plenty of interest from punters and given the good read of form people get on this race it’s no surprise that Thousand Guineas betting is so popular. Any time a punter can bet with confidence means they’re more likely to load up as they look for a winner. Set weight contests provide much of this confidence in itself, that’s only increased by the fact the horses are running against their own age, their own sex and their form is clear to see.

While a large chunk of the Thousand Guineas betting goes through the TAB and on course, an increasingly large value is being wagered through online bookmakers as well. Punters are naturally looking for big value and this event certainly provides that. It’s actually quite interesting that an event which favours the proven, classy horse rarely has any huge short priced favourites or massive winning margins. The racing is tight and the contest is hard fought, exactly the circumstances which attract plenty of interest.

Thousand Guineas Odds

As has been mentioned the Thousands Guineas Odds often stack up in a lot more generous than what would be though. While there is certainly the odd big money favourite a lot of the time the field appears rather even on paper. In fact in recent years this race has probably been one of the more profitable Group 1 events in terms of winning odds. Horse racing by its very nature is far from an exact science and the market usually reflects that with not a great deal of certainty for any one runner.

This can be a good thing for punters in that if they pick correctly there is a lot more value for them with bigger returns. The 2010 Thousand Guineas showed this perfectly with the winning odds going well against the bookies thought process. The eventual winner Yosei paid out double figure odds of around $12. That’s nothing compared to the second placed runner Heartsareforlove which  was listed at $151 to win the event. The third placed Brazilian Pulse was a far more modest $5 but even the fourth finisher Ambers Waltz was big money at $51.

Thousand Guineas Tips

Getting your Thousand Guineas Tips from a good source can be pretty tricky with the information available often bias or misleading. Plenty of it is up for interpretation as well meaning punters have to work hard to separate the good from the bad. Having said that the lead up races do give you a good sighter so be sure to take these runs into account.

There are a couple of main factors to look out for though which can make a big difference between starts. Firstly look at track conditions, is the lead up race was held on a vastly different surface it could mean 10 lengths for some horse which are very sensitive to adverse conditions. The second is freshness and length of prep, some trainers may have their horses at peak fitness for the previous start meaning they will have no improvement left in them. Others though me may specifically targeting the Thousand Guineas and as such they could find a few lengths in between runs.

Thousand Guineas Day

Thousand Guineas Day offers a very important race card and is a valuable asset to the Melbourne Racing Club during their flagship Melbourne Racing Carnival. The event is run annually in October and fills a gap in the scheduling which means punters have access to top rung racing on a more regular basis. Thousand Guineas Day is held on a Wednesday adding a somewhat rare Group 1 to midweek racing. It’s held in the period between the Caulfield Guineas on the previous Saturday and the Caulfield Cup on the upcoming Saturday.

While it may be a Wednesday there’s still no shortage of spectacle around Caulfield Racecourse and on the most part it feels like any other weekend carnival day. There are always healthy crowds on hand and an abundance of off-track entertainment meaning people have every excuse to take a break from the daily grind and give themselves a rare midweek escape to see some top quality horse racing action.

Thousand Guineas Results

The Thousand Guineas has produced some tremendous results and some finishes have come right down to the final stride at the line. Plenty of these fillies go on from this race to even greater success and for many this is the first of multiple Group 1’s. It also turns these fillies into extremely attractive mare prospects for a life in the breeding barn with their broodmare value massively enhanced.

In terms of on track success though the Group 1 Crown Oaks has found its winner from the Thousand Guineas on numerous occasions. Some of the horses to achieve the feat include Richfield Lady in 1991, Arborea in 1993, Northward Plume in 1994, Magical Miss in 2001, Special Harmony in 2003 and Miss Finland in 2006. There are also plenty more who have had further success at Group 2 level with the Wakeful Stakes are very popular option on Derby Day.
