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.

Wheatear won the first running of the Caulfield Guineas back in 1881. Since then a number of great horses have won the race, amongst them are Ajax, Vain, Manikato and Weekend Hussler.
As with many races on the racing calendar, Chris Waller has had some decent success over recent years. He has trained the winner in two of the last five Caulfield Guineas, with the most recent being The Autumn Sun in 2018.
Super Seth recorded 1:36.44 to win the Caulfield Guineas in 2019, however, the fastest time in the race over the last 20 years belongs to Helmet. In 2011 the Peter Snowden-trained galloper clocked 1:35.36 to win the race.
