Irish 1000 Guineas History
Over a century after the 1000 Guineas was first played out at Newmarket, the Irish 1000 Guineas was created. This Classic was first held at the Curragh in 1922, the year after the Irish 2000 Guineas was run for the first time.
The Irish 1000 Guineas takes place three weeks after the British 1000 Guineas, enabling fillies to run in both races. Only a handful of fillies have managed to win both races, the most recent 1000 Guineas double winner was Hermosa, who won both Classics in 2019.
Like the 2000 Guineas, Aidan O'Brien is the most successful trainer in the history of the Irish 1000 Guineas. Since his first winner in 1997, O'Brien has won this Classic ten times, with Princess Josephine handing him his most recent victory in 2021.
Legendary jockey, Morny Wing is the most successful rider in this Classic's history. Wing rode 1922 winner Lady Violette, before claiming his seventh victory on Sea Symphony 25 years later.
Paddy and Kevin Prendergast, Dermot Weld, John Oxx and Jim Bolger are amongst the famous Irish trainers to have saddled the Irish 1000 Guineas winner. British trainers have also tasted plenty of success in this Classic, with the likes of Sir Henry Cecil, Mark Johnston, Sir Michael Stoute and John Dunlop all saddling winners at the Curragh.
Aidan O'Brien has dominated this race in recent years, saddling five of the eight winners between 2014 and 2021. Jim Bolger and Adrian Keatley interrupted O'Brien's dominance when Pleascach and Jet Setting scored in 2014 and 2015 respectively. Jessica Harrington's Alpha Centauri claimed an impressive win under Shane Foley in 2018.
