The 1000 Guineas is a Group 1 race over a mile and is open to three-year-old fillies. It takes place on the Sunday following the 2000 Guineas on the Rowley Mile, and is the second of the five British Classics, the first of two restricted to fillies. It is also the first race of the fillies’ Triple Crown, followed by the Oaks at Epsom and the St Leger at Doncaster, though it is rarely attempted nowadays.
The 1000 Guineas has an impressive recent roll of honour, with Legatissimo, Minding and Winter – who all went on to further success at Group 1 level – all winning the race in recent years. Billesdon Brook became the biggest-priced winner (66/1) in the race’s history when landing the 2018 renewal for Richard Hannon.
