The Rosehill Guineas is a good horse's race and one of the better three-year-old events during the Sydney autumn racing carnival and is the first test at 2000m for three-year-olds at the elite level. The Gr1 Randwick Guineas is the logical lead up to this race.
Both It's A Dundeel (2013) & Metal Bender (2009) have taken out the Randwick Guineas & Rosehill Guineas double in recent years, while a number of horses have managed to either win or place in both races.
Many of our very best three-year-olds have won the Rosehill Guineas including It's A Dundeel, Jimmy Choux (2011), Metal Bender (2009), Sky Heights (1999), Tie The Knot (1998), Octagonal (1996), Danewin (1995), Naturalism (1992) and Sky Chase (1988).
The Guineas is the first real staying test for three-year-olds in group one class and is often a good pointer to the premier 3yo event of the autumn, the Gr1 ATC Australian Derby over 2400m later in the month at Randwick. In recent times It's A Dundeel (2013), Eremein (2005) and Sky Heights (1999) have all take out the Rosehill Guineas & ATC Derby double.
Interestingly enough, Sacred Halls (2nd in 2013) managed to take out the Gr1 Doncaster Handicap at Randwick at his next start following his second place finish in this race.
Gingernuts (2017) was an impressive winner of the Gr1 NZ Derby over 2400m at Ellerslie in New Zealand before crossing the Tasman to win this event on a heavy track Tarzino (2016)and recent Rosehill Guineas winners incude Tarzino (2016) and Volkstok'n'Barrell (2015).
