2011 Randwick Guineas to be Held at Warwick Farm

November 25th, 2010

The 2011 Randwick Guineas has been moved from its traditional venue at the esteemed Royal Randwick Racecourse to Warwick Farm in a controversial decision by the Australian Jockey Club (AJC).

The AJC has granted permission for the Future Music Festival to take priority over one of the country’s premier three-year-old races on Saturday March 12, forcing the opening Sydney Autumn Carnival race meeting to take place at the substandard Sydney course at Warwick Farm.

The Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) along with the four other Group status races held at the meeting were not able to be moved to another race date.

The move has infuriated local trainers who are now considering bypassing the Randwick Guineas with their star three-year-olds and racing their horses in the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) at Flemington a week earlier on March 5.
