Winners and Past Results for the Australian Guineas.

The Australian Guineas is a Victoria Racing Club Group 1 Australian horse race for three-year-olds run under set weight conditions.

The Australian Guineas is held at the Flemington Track in Melbourne and is run over a distance of 1600 metres.

Hosted by the Victoria Racing Club, the race is among the major features of the autumn racing carnival with prize money worth $750,000. It is also known as the Cadbury Guineas and is held a week before Super Saturday with some of the strongest quality three year old gallopers coming under the starter's orders.

Among the major races leading up to the Australian Guineas is the Group 3 CS Hayes Stakes, from which come quality colts and geldings. Fillies with a good run in the Group 3 The Vanity usually take to the track in a race that has produced a number of notable group race winners. The 2009 Australian Guineas champion, Heart of Dreams ran fourth in the CS Hayes Stakes prior to winning the trophy while the 2011 winner, Shamrocker, was placed fourth in The Vanity prior to upsetting the favourites.

The 2009 edition of the Australian Guineas produced a number of multiple group winners in the year. The race serves as a good form guide for other major races including the Group 2 Caulfield Sprint and the Herbert Power Stakes. Set For Fame, runner up in 2010, went on to win the Caulfield Sprint while third placed Linton, later won the Herbert Power Stakes.

The Australian Guineas is held on the day of the Group 3 PFD Food Services Stakes during the autumn racing carnival. The first horse to win the trophy was True Version in 1986. Among the other strong gallopers to win the Australian Guineas include Zabeel in 1990, Baryshnikov in 1995, Mr. Murphy in 2001, Reset in 2004, Apache Cat in 2006, and Rock Classic in 2010.

The Australian Guineas began as a Group 3 race in 1986 but was awarded a Group 1 status the following year.

Between 1998 and 2000 the distance was increased to 2000 meters as the final leg of the Australian Triple Crown and was then reverted back to a mile the following year. Gold Guru, Dignity Dancer, and Pins proved their ability to go the extra distance in 1998, 1999, and 2000 respectively.

Lee Freedman and Colin Hayes are the most successful trainers to win three Australian Guineas each. Mahogany, Flying Spur, and Mr. Murphy came from Freedman's stable while Military Plume, King's High and Zabeel did Colin Hayes proud. Several jockeys scored a double, which include Damien Oliver, Jim Cassidy, Greg Childs, Greg Hall, Darren Gauci, Michael Clarke, and Craig Newitt.
