Caulfield Guineas Betting

The Neds Caulfield Guineas is a Group 1 race for three-year-olds conducted over a mile (1600m) in mid-October during the annual Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. 

A set weights clash offering $2 million in prize money, the Caulfield Guineas is open to fillies but rarely attracts the female gallopers who instead contest the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) on the same day.

A good lead up race to this event is the Caulfield Guineas Prelude, a Group 3 race run at 1400 metres and occuring two weeks before the Caulfield Guineas. Helmet (2011) was the last horse to complete the Caulfield Guineas Prelude – Caulfield Guineas double. 

Regarded one of the key stallion-making races for three-year-olds, the Caulfield Guineas has been won by many great horses throughout history including the likes of: Ajax (1937), Tulloch (1957), subsequent Cox Plate winning filly Surround (1976), Lonhro (2001) and more recently The Autumn Sun (2018).

Surround (1976) is one of four three-year-olds to have completed the Caulfield Guineas – Cox Plate double in a single season along with: Star Affair (1965), Rajah Sahib (1968) and Red Anchor (1984).

Horses out of the Caulfield Guineas many continue on to run in the Group 1 Victoria Derby (2500m) late in the spring during the Melbourne Cup Carnival. Sixteen have done the double, most recently Helenus (2002).

Interstate Invaders: Horses trained in Sydney have come to dominate this race in previous years.

Lucky Barrier: It seems that barrier one gives an advantage, as quite a few recent winners have jumped from it.

Hot Leads: The Stan Fox Stakes has been responsible for sending a lot of winners into this race. Also worth considering is the Golden Rose. Ole Kirk (2020) was the last horse to complete the Golden Rose Stakes – Caulfield Guineas double.
