History of the 1000 Guineas

Inaugurated in 1814, the 1000 Guineas stakes is named, like the 2000 Guineas, after the prize purse for winning the Group 1 race.  Now the prize fund has been equal to that of the 2000 Guineas, at £500,000.  It's another 1 mile race, this time for 3 year old fillies, and forms part of the Fillies Triple Crown.

For the leading trainer and leading Jockey we have to travel back to the 1800's when George Fordham clocked 7 wins as jockey, and Robert Robson's trained horses won 9 times.  Aidan O'Brien is the leading trainer of recent years, having 5 winners in 15 years, including last year's Hermosa.

Horses who run in the 1000 Guineas are often entered into the Epsom Oaks.  2016 was the last time that there was a dual winner, in Minding, who won both the 1000 Guineas and the Epsom Oaks.

What's Keith's 1000 Guineas Tips for 2020

Roger Charlton is very bullish about his unbeaten filly QUADRILATTERAL who is the current favourite but I am going to take her on with the Jessica Harrington trained MILLISLE 5/1. 

MILLISLE kept on well to win the Cheveley Park Stakes in September and should be even better this year stepped up in trip.

What did Keith Tip in the 2019 1000 Guineas?

This is what Keith said about the 1000 Guineas in 2019 :

IRIDESSA 1000 Guineas 15:35 Newmarket – Won the fillies mile over course and distance in September, decent return at Leopardstown when 3rd on soft, this quicker going will suit her better and victory here will set her up for the Oaks.

Quipco 1000 Guineas Results 2019

Here's the results of the 1000 Guineas in 2019:

1st Hermosa (14/1)
2nd Lady Kaya (11/1)
3rd Qabala (7/2F)

Keith's 2019 tip IRIDESSA ran badly in this race, however the promise Keith saw was repaid as she clocked up 3 group 1 races in that season including the Breeders Cup.
