The Randwick Guineas is one of the better three-year-old races of the Sydney autumn carnival and has a history of attracting top quality gallopers who often go on to become stars of the turf.
A race such as the Gr2 Hobartville Stakes at Rosehill in February is a good lead up race to this event and three-year-olds may then decide to tackle upcoming group races such as the Gr2 Phar Lap Stakes or Gr1 Rosehill Guineas later in the month at Rosehill.
Hallowed Crown (2015) & Dissident (2014) have both take out the Hobartville Stakes & Randwick Guineas double in recent years and It's A Dundeel (2013) is the most recent three-year-old to claim the Randwick Guineas & Rosehill Guineas double. Sacred Falls (5th in 2013) finished runner-up to It's A Dundeel, while Tatra (3rd in 2013) ran third in both races.
Some classy three-year-olds have won the Randwick Guineas over the years including It's A Dundeel (2013), Mosheen (2012), Weekend Hussler (2008), Arena (1999), Intergaze (1997), Octagonal (1996) and Veandercross (1992).
The Peter Moody trained Dissident (2014) went on to win multiple Group 1 races the following spring & autumn in Melbourne after winning the Hobartville Stakes & Randwick Guineas, including the Memsie Stakes & CF Orr Stakes at Caulfield and the Makybe Diva Stakes at Flemington.
Inference (2017) finished fifth in the Gr2 Hobartville Stakes over 1400m at Rosehill before scoring an impressive victory in this event and recent Randwick Guineas winners include Le Romain (2016) and Hallowed Crown (2015).
