The Caulfield Guineas is a $2 million Group 1 three-year-old race held at Caulfield Racecourse. It is run over 1600m with set weights and in 2020 will be raced on Saturday, October 10, the same day as the Caulfield Stakes, Toorak Handicap and Thousand Guineas.

The Anthony Freedman-trained Super Seth won the 2019 edition of the race in what was a thrilling race. Alligator Blood looked home for all money, however, Mark Zahra bolted home on board Super Seth, claiming victory in a photo finish. Super Seth hasn’t won another Group 1 since but Alligator Blood won the Australian Guineas in early 2020.
