Thousand Guineas 2024

Thousand Guineas

Preview, Trends & Analysis

The Rundown

The Thousand Guineas is a Group 1 mile race reserved solely for the three-year-old fillies who are up to the task of testing themselves in a tough affair at Caulfield. 

It is a race that has thrown a mixture of results in recent times with double-figure odds winners popping up as well as some seriously short favourites getting the job done. 

The first edition of the Thousand Guineas was run in 1945 and won by Sweet Chime. 

The race is a test not only of stamina, but of a filly’s ability to handle the rise up the hill up the back straight of Caulfield as well as the two sharp turns leading into the home straight.

There has been neither an advantage to come from the Sydney or Victorian mile races with a handful of fillies winning the race from both states.  

The Famous Winners and Record Results

Atlantic Jewel is arguably the most famous horse to have won the Thousand Guineas in the last 10 years. 

The star galloper trained by Mark Kavanagh and ridden by Michael Rodd was installed as a $1.70 favourite and did not disappoint the punters. 

She would go on to win the race by just over three lengths in a dazzling display. 

Miss Finland (2006) is also a filly to have won the Thousand Guineas since the turn of the century and competes alongside Atlantic Jewel as one of the most popular winners of the race. 

She was David Hayes first every victory in the race and then he followed that up with Irish Lights (2009). 

Stay With Me (2015) then emulated her mother Miss Finland by winning the Thousand Guineas and making three wins in the race for Hayes. 

Aloisia (2017) caused one of the more recent upsets in the race when when knocking highly touted filly Alizee as a $14 outsider. 

But the biggest upset has been saved for 2021 with Yearning crossing the post in first as a $26 winner.
