2000 Guineas History
Having first run in 1809, the 2000 Guineas is one of the oldest thoroughbred horse races in the world.
One of five classic races in the UK (1000 Guineas, Epsom Oaks, Epsom Derby, St. Leger), the 2000 Guineas is the first to run in the year and is one of the most important.
It's the first leg of the Triple Crown and although it's not targeted by many trainers, it still adds some more intrigue to the May feature race.
Open to three-year-old colts and fillies, the 2000 Guineas is one of the most prestigious races in the world and the prize money received a boost in 2017 when it was raised to £500,000 after being run for £350,000 for many years.
The past winners list is a who's who of UK racing. Historic names such as Nijinsky, Rodrigo de Triano, Golan and Rock of Gibralter have been engraved on the trophy.
The modern-day champions have also had great success in the 2000 Guineas with unbeaten champion Frankel winning in 2011 and only quality winners have followed.
Aidan O'Brien has won the race on eight occasions and most of them came for owner Sue Magnier of Coolmore.
His most famous wins came with Henrythenavigator, Camelot and Churchill.
Jockey Jem Robinson won the 2000 Guineas on nine occasions during the 1800's. In a feat that is unlikely to be matched, Robinson won the race five times during the 1830's and he was the most dominant jockey of his time.
The 2000 Guineas has long been associated with champion thoroughbreds, but bettors have had to deal with the odd upset result.
Most of the recent winners have gone on to become top-quality horses, but it's not always easy to identify which three-year-old will turn into a mature type.
Bettors have correctly predicted the results in many of the recent editions of the 2000 Guineas, but the biggest plunge was landed in 2011 when Frankel stormed to victory.
The 1/2 favourite scored by six lengths and that reestablished confidence for bettors are suffering four consecutive upset results from 2007-2010.
During that time the winners paid 25/1, 11/1, 8/1 and 33/1 when Makfi scored in 2010.
The win of Frankel was the first of three consecutive favourites to win the 2000 Guineas. Camelot (15/8) and Dawn Approach (11/8) were heavily-favoured with bookmakers.
Gleneagles won as the 3/1 elect in 2015 and Churchill was also popular with bettors at 7/5.
When betting on the 2000 Guineas it pays to look at the well-bred middle-distance types, which look to have bigger targets in sight.
It might only be a one-mile race, but the 2000 Guineas is suited to thoroughbreds which could see out 2000m or 2400m.
It would pay to follow runners which have finished in the top three at their previous starts. These runners have a great record in the race and it also pays to follow those that have won at group level prior to the 2000 Guineas.
16 of the last 16 winners have finished the top three coming into the 2000 Guineas and 14 out of 16 had won at group level.
