2,000 Guineas

Newmarket Racecourse
A Brief History Of 2,000 Guineas
The Two Thousand Guineas Stakes is a Group 1 thoroughbred flat horse race for three-year-old colts and fillies run over a distance of 1 mile (1,609 metres) on the Rowley Mile course at Newmarket Racecourse in late April / early May. It is one of five classic races in the United Kingdom.

It was first run in 1809 and takes its name from the original guaranteed prize fund of 2,000 guineas

The race takes place early in the season and there may be little previous form for that year - last season's two-year-old form is usually taken as the most reliable guide to predicting the outcome.
