Caulfield Guineas:

Snapshot History

  • With prizemoney of 200 sovereigns (with added sweepstakes of 10 sovereigns per runner), the first Caulfield Guineas (eight furlongs) was conducted on Thursday, October 13, 1881.
  • This was the opening day of the inaugural two-day Caulfield Cup meeting conducted by the Victoria Amateur Turf Club on the Caulfield racecourse.
  • With the military occupying Caulfield racecourse during the Second World War, the Guineas was conducted at Flemington from 1940 to 1943.
  • Total stake-money for the race presently stands at $2 million, a four-fold increase since Kenwood Melody won the 1998 Caulfield Guineas worth $500,000.
