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 and Leapfrog (2nd in 2009) went on to finish runner-up in the Fred Best Classic at his next start.

Champagne Cuddles (2018) resumed from a spell to take out this event in exciting style and recent Gold Coast Guineas winners include Savanna Amour (2017) and Takedown (2016).
