The Gold Coast Guineas is held away from the Metropolitan area of Brisbane and takes place on the Gold Coast which is home to the Magic Millions carnival in January.
A set weights event for three-year-olds that favours the better performed gallopers in the race, the Gold Coast Guineas will typically attract mainly local types from around the Brisbane and Gold Coast area who may then go on to a race like the Gr3 Fred Best Classic over 1200m later in the month at Doomben.
El Cambio (2008) and Gold Edition (2007) were the most recent gallopers to take out the Gold Coast Guineas & Fred Best Classic double, while Leapfrog (2nd in 2009) finished runner-up in the Fred Best Classic at his next start.
Pennino (2019) ran fifth in the Listed Mick Dittman Stakes over 1110m at Doomben prior to winning this race in impressive style for the Daryl hansen stable on the Sunshine Coast.
Recent Gold Coast Guineas winners include Champagne Cuddles (2018) and Savanna Amour (2017).
