What is the 1000 Guineas race at Newmarket?

The 1000 Guineas Stakes is a Group 1 three-year-old race that takes place on the last day of the Guineas Festival at Newmarket. Thoroughbred fillies are eligible.

The flat race length is one mile long and usually takes place in April or May. Because of the enforced break, the 2020 Guineas Festival begins in June.

Why is the 1000 Guineas race so popular?

Simple. It is the second of the Classic five UK races in the calendar. Dating back to 1814, this race is one of the oldest ever thoroughbred races in the world.

The 1000 Guineas makes up the first of the Fillies Triple Crown races. The Fillies Triple Crown comprises three thoroughbred filly races in which jockeys and trainers desire to win all three. By winning all three races, a horse, its jockey, trainer and owner, join a prestigious list of filly Triple Crown winners.

Who won the last Filly Triple Crown?

This year marks the 35th anniversary of the last English Filly Triple Crown winner, Oh So Sharp. In 1985, jockey Steve Cauthen rode the Irish horse to wins at Newmarket in the 1000 Guineas, the Oaks at Epsom, and the St. Leger Stakes in Yorkshire.

The last filly to come close was Minding in 2016. Having won the first two Classic races, the three-year-old never entered the St. Legers. Instead, she won the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes at Ascot in October after coming third in the Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown in September.

What is the prize money for this race?

The prize fund for this year’s race is £250,000, half of last year’s half a million prize purse.

What time is the 1000 Guineas race?

Race five of the eight-race Day 3, Newmarket have scheduled the famous race for a 3.35 start.
