The Rosehill Guineas is held over 2000 at Rosehill as part of the Triple Crown Series.

The Triple Crown series starts with the Randwick Guineas (1600m) two weeks prior to the Rosehill Guineas (2000m) and culminates a fortnight later with the Australian Derby (2400m).

Connections of Rosehill Guineas runners are always wanting to see their runner handle the 2000m after racing at 1600m in the Randwick Guineas with an eye on the Derby at 2400m.

The honour roll that the Rosehill Guineas has, matches up against any race in the world. With the likes of Phar Lap, Tulloch, Tie The Knot, Octagonal and Kingston Town all previously winning the prestigious race.

The Rosehill Guineas only became a 2000m race back in 1948, with it being held at 1800m and 1400m prior to that. In 1980 the race gained an elevation to Group 1 status.

In recent times only The Autumn Sun (2019) has gone close to completing the Triple Crown when taking out both the Randwick Guineas and Rosehill Guineas, but was retired before getting a chance to complete the third leg in the Australian Derby. The last time the triple crown was completed was by It’s A Dundeel in 2013.

Rosehill Guineas betting guide

The Autumn Sun was the last runner to win both the Randwick Guineas and Rosehill Guineas

It does not take a genius to work out the key form guide for the Rosehill Guineas. The Randwick Guineas is held a fortnight prior to the Rosehill Guineas. With the Rosehill Guineas the logical step prior to the Australian Derby it is no wonder connections continue on to the Rosehill Guineas.

Sydney based runners can also come through the Eskimo Prince Stakes or the Hobartville Stakes. Whilst runners making the trip north would be on the three week back up from the Group 1 Australian Guineas at Flemington.

As the Rosehill Guineas is the second leg of the Triple Crown in Sydney, runners coming through the Randwick and Rosehill Guineas will more than likely push on to the Australian Derby. The winner of the Rosehill Guineas receives ballot exemption from the Australian Derby.

The Rosehill Guineas has not been won by a filly since 1989, although the Rosehill Guineas is usually bypassed by trainers with a filly under there watch.

Recent Rosehill Guineas winners

  • On the back of a huge run in the Cox Plate in the spring, Castelvecchio got his deserved Group 1 victory in the Rosehill Guineas. On a day where it favoured on-speed runners, Craig Williams took the usual back marker to the first half of the field and when asked for an effort managed to keep his rivals at bay to bring up a deserved Group 1 victory. Only Prince Fawaz managed to give Castelvecchio a scare, getting to within a half length of the colt.
  • Having come from the clouds to take out the Randwick Guineas, The Autumn Sun was sent around as a short priced favourite in the Rosehill Guineas. Having been trapped wide without cover early on Kerrin McEvoy managed to find the colt some cover midfield. When cornering The Autumn Sun quickly pounced on the leader Arrogant. Arrogant however wasn’t going down without a fight and through the home straight the pair went stride for stride before The Autumn Sun prevailed to score by a head on the line.
  • Having been touted as a promising colt throughout the early stages of his career, D’Argento certainly had not been a punters pal. However, he rewarded his loyal following when proving dominant in the Rosehill Guineas. Having been well beaten in the Randwick Guineas a fortnight earlier, trainer Chris Waller had doubts he would see out the 2000m. See it out he did, handing a Group 1 double to Hugh Bowman and Chris Waller on the day.
  • With co-trainer Jamie Richards on course the ever popular Gingernuts managed to put in one hell of a performance to take out the Rosehill Guineas. Under a perfect ride from Opie Bosson the kiwi raider kicked clear with 300m to go sustaining a healthy margin down to the winning post and stamping his claims for a tilt at the Australian Derby.
  • Having taken out the VRC Derby in the spring, Tarzino under a pearler of a ride from Craig Newitt rewarded favourite backers who took the $3.10. The Mick Price colt was a touch unlucky in the Randwick Guineas, but having settled closer to the speed this time round, he proved too hard to hold out and got the job done with relative ease.
