1000 Guineas Betting Tips, Trends & Big Race Facts

What is the 1000 Guineas?

Staged on the Sunday of the Guineas weekend in early May, the 1000 Guineas is a highly coveted race. Just like the 2000 Guineas, it is also one of the five British Classic races and the first fillies’ Classic race of the season.

Named after the inaugural prize purse back in 1814, the 1000 Guineas is run over Newmarket’s Rowley Mile course which is a tough test for the young fillies. The last two furlongs of the race always sorts out the stars of the future from the also-rans.

Where & when is the 2021 1000 Guineas?

The next 1000 Guineas race is scheduled to take place at Newmarket, England on Sunday 2nd May 2021 with a race off-time set for 15:00.
