Randwick Guineas 2024

Ladbrokes Tip: The premier Randwick Guineas lead-up is the Hobartville Stakes run at Rosehill

The Randwick Guineas is a highlight race of the annual Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival and takes place at Royal Randwick Racecourse on a Saturday in early March. The mile feature runs over 1600m and is part of a Group 1 double-header on Randwick Guineas Day supported by the Group 1 Canterbury Stakes (1300m).

Open only to three-year-old runners the feature is worth $1 million in prize money and is run at set weights with colts and geldings carrying 56.5kg and fillies allocated 54.5kg. The Randwick Guineas winner is exempt from ballot for both the Doncaster Mile run over the same track and distance during Sydney’s The Championships in April as well as the ATC Derby held over 2400m.

The season’s premier three-year-olds often run in the Randwick Guineas before backing-up in the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas (2000m) over 400m further in a fortnight’s time. The Autumn Sun (2019) was the last horse to complete the Randwick Guineas – Rosehill Guineas double. The race is also a great guide to the ATC Derby held over 2400m. It’s A Dundeel (2013) was the last Randwick Guineas winner to continue on and win the Australian Derby.

Upset 25/1 Randwick Guineas winner Lion’s Roar in 2021 finished third in that season’s ATC Derby trifecta, while the Randwick Guineas runner-up Mo’unga franked the form winning the Rosehill Guineas next start.

In 2022 the Randwick Guineas runner-up Anamoe turned the tables on the winner Converge with the duo running one-two in the Rosehill Guineas results in reverse order next start.

The 2023 Rosehill Guineas winner Lindermann meanwhile came via a lead-up second in the Randwick Guineas results.

The next edition of the Randwick Guineas runs on Saturday March 9, 2024 as a lead-up to the Rosehill Guineas later in the autumn.

Randwick Guineas Field

Many of the top contenders in the Randwick Guineas field come via a run in the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill a fortnight before.

The Hobartville Stakes – Randwick Guineas double was won three times from 2011 – 2015 with Ilovethiscity (2011), Dissident (2014) and Hallowed Crown (2015) all successful in both races, and again in 2018 by Kementari and 2019 by The Autumn Sun.

Earlier, the Group 3 Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m) at Randwick makes a nice starting point for horses eyeing a run in the Randwick Guineas field and Kementari (2018) was the last to do the double.

In 2022 Converge won the Randwick Guineas having placed third in both the Eskimo Prince Stakes and Hobartville Stakes. That year’s Hobartville Stakes winner Anamoe finished second in the Randwick Guineas as the beaten odds-on favourite, while the Hobartville runner-up Hilal placed third in the Group 1 over the mile.

In 2023 the upset Randwick Guineas winner Communist ran third in the Eskimo Prince and seventh in the Hobartville leading up to his Group 1 success.

Many three-year-olds coming out of the Randwick Guineas field go on to compete in the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas (2000m) later in March, which is another popular betting double most recently completed by The Autumn Sun (2019).
