1000 Guineas History
The 1000 Guineas was first run in 1814 when the Bill Clift-trained Charlotte was successful.
Trainer Robert Robson, who raced horses for the 4th Duke of Grafton, dominated the race in the early editions.
The pair won nine 1000 Guineas' in 10 years before the run came to an end in 1828 when Bobby Pettit won with Zoe.
In more recent times the 1000 Guineas has been taken out by the big breeding barns. Coolmore Stud, Godolphin, Ballymore and other leading UAE-operated studs have taken top honours.
The team of Magnier, Tabor and Smith won the 1000 Guineas in 2015, 2016 and 2017. The Coolmore team sets their fillies for the 1000 Guineas and they're tough to beat come May at Newmarket.
Interestingly, the 1000 Guineas was named according to its original prize fund. The race was initially worth 1000 Guineas, which is where the Guineas name originates.
There has been a good mix of favourites and longshots win the 1000 Guineas, which is great for bettors of all levels.
This is mostly because the field sizes for the 1000 Guineas are large compared to some other Group 1 races in the UK, with most Guineas' fields attracting between 15 and 17 runners.
Bookmakers are forced to offer better odds due to the size of the fields and bettors have been able to cash in recently.
Winter was a highly-regarded filly, but she was sent out at odds of 9/1. The Aidan O'Brien-trained runner wasn't the top pick for the stable, but some bettors rightfully identified the value on offer.
That was the second consecutive winner for O'Brien, who also trained 2016 winner Minding, which was well-found by bettors at 11/10.
It pays to follow jockey Ryan Moore, who won the 1000 Guineas in 2012, 2015 and 2016.
His biggest win came aboard Homecoming Queen in 2012 where the filly upset a talented field at odds of 25/1. That was before Moore was a legitimate superstar and bettors shouldn't expect a Moore-ridden thoroughbred to be paying long odds ever again.
The rule of thumb for betting the 1000 Guineas is to stick with the big stables. It's rare to see a small-time trainer take out one of the Classic races, especially the Guineas.
Barrier one is something to avoid in the 1000 Guineas. No horses have placed from the inside barrier in the last 10 years.
