The 2000 Guineas is the first of five British Classic races over a variety of distances. The Epsom Derby and the St Leger make up the British Triple Crown. Nijinsky was the last horse to win all three races in 1970.

Very few colts attempt the British Triple Crown, although Aidan O’Brien’s Camelot went close in 2012 when beaten into second in the St Leger. The Fillies’ Triple Crown comprises of the 1000 Guineas, the Oaks and the St Leger, last achieved by Oh So Sharp in 1985.

Newmarket Racecourse

Newmarket Racecourse in Suffolk is known as British racing’s Headquarters and has two racecourses, the Rowley Mile Course and the July Course.

The Rowley Mile

The Rowley Mile has a ten furlong straight and stages the Guineas meeting and the top spring and autumn festivals. The July course has a completely different atmosphere with evening meetings and musical entertainment staged during the summer.

As well as hosting the first two Classic races of the flat racing season, the racecourse stages nine other Group 1 races. Newmarket is home to around eighty training establishments and approximately 3,000 thoroughbreds.

Newmarket Racing History

Racing in Newmarket has a rich and colourful history and can be traced back to the time of James I.  Up until 1744, the two most valuable races run at the course were the King’s Plate and the Town Plate. The Newmarket Town Plate was instigated by King Charles II in 1666 and still continues to this day. A statue of the King was unveiled on the course in July 2016 to celebrate 350 years of the Newmarket Town Plate.

In 1839 the Cambridgeshire and Cesarewitch handicaps were created and are still a favourite with punters. They make up the “Autumn Double” with more ambitious punters trying to find the winners of both races. By 1840, there were seven annual meetings including the Craven meeting and the July meeting.

The 2000 Guineas Day Beginning

In 1995 the 1000 Guineas was switched to the Sunday in a revamped 2000 Guineas Festival meeting. Harayir became the first horse to win a British Classic on a Sunday for Trainer Major Dick Hern and jockey Richard Hills.
