Queensland Guineas

Winners and Past Results for the Queensland Guineas

Queensland Guineas

The Queensland Guineas held at Eagle Farm Racecourse in Brisbane during the winter racing carnival has a handy group of three year old horses seeking to prove their ability to conquer the mile and take advantage of the set weight conditions.

Brisbane Racing Club offers prize money worth $350,000 in this Group 2 race held on the same day as other major Group 1 races including the Queensland Derby, The TJ Smith and Stradbroke Handicap in June. The Eagle Farm track usually has a field of handy milers who haven't yet proved their mettle over longer distances or proved their ability to do so. Over the years some of the most impressive milers have won the Queensland Guineas which include Triscay in 1991, Paris Lane in 1994, Yippyio in 1997 and Turffontein in 2008. One of the most popular horses in Australia to win the Queensland Guineas during a successful career was Yippyio in 1997.

Horses may make their way from several other 1400 and 1600 metre races which include Group 3 races such as the Gunsynd Classic held at the Eagle Farm Racecourse and the Fred Best Classic at Doomben Racecourse. Others may find their way from the Doomben 10,000 held at the Doomben track in May while some handy milers may come in from the 1400 Group 3 Gold Coast Guineas held at the end of May. The set weight conditions of the race generally favour the better performing gallopers although there has been a mixed bag of winners over the years.

The Group 3 Lord Mayor's Cup held over the same distance at Doomben at the end of May is often a handy form guide since a few horses choose this path as a lead up to the Guineas. 2010 Queensland Guineas champion, Rothesay, came into the event after an impressive victory in the Lord Mayor's Cup. Some horses may go for a spell after Queensland Guineas and return fresh in August or September during the spring carnival while others may opt for other listed races before major events the following spring.

The Queensland Guineas began as a principal race in 1896 and remained so until 1979 when it was granted Group 3 status by Brisbane Racing Club. The race attracted a field of classy milers which ultimately led to the Queensland Guineas becoming a Group 2 event in 1988.
