Caulfield Guineas 2024

Caulfield Guineas

Preview, Trends & Analysis

The Rundown

The Caulfield Guineas is the premiere mile event for the three-year-olds during the Australian Spring Carnival.

Raced at ‘The Heath’ around the beautiful surrounds of Caulfield in Victoria’s metropolitan east, the race is one of the most prestigious stallion making events on the racing calendar.

The race was inaugurally run in 1881. 

In what is a set weights race, the majority of horses carry a 56.5 kilos impost on their back.

The Famous Winners and Record Results

It is almost impossible to begin narrowing down the horses you automatically think of when ‘Caulfield Guineas’ gets mentioned in conversation.

Lonhro or as Greg Miles dubbed him ‘Occy’s little boy’ took home the 2001 Caulfield Guineas with Darren Gauci aboard for champion trainer John Hawkes.

The son of Octagonal has gone on to become one of the most successful stallions at stud in Australian breeding history with just over 50% of his offspring making the track and winning at least one race.

In 1999 Redoute’s Choice locked horns in a famous stoush with Testa Rossa where the former looked all over the winner only for Jimmy ‘The Pumper’ Cassidy to lift Redoute’s Choice over the line.

But the biggest run of all time goes to the Bart Cummings trained God’s Own (2005).

He was aptly named when you look back at how he won, given it probably took some sort of divine intervention for him to reel in runaway leader Paratroopers.

After being belted and chopped out for a clear run on several occasions heading into the home straight, champion jockey Glen Boss somehow launched the Dato Tan Chin Nam-owned horse to victory.

Mighty Boss (2017) produced one of the biggest upsets in not only this race but in recent racing history on Australian soil after winning the event at $101.

Abaridy’s win at $251 in 1986 is the longest-priced Group 1 win in Australian racing history.

Other well known winners include Weekend Hussler (2007), Mahogany (1993), Red Anchor (1984), Manikato (1978), Tulloch (1957) and Ajax (1937).
