The QIPCO Guineas Festival

Fri 29 Apr - Sun 01 May
2022
Fri 29 Apr - Sun 01 May
2022

The QIPCO Guineas Festival is the first major flat racing classic of the year, held at the historic Newmarket Racecourse annually in late April or early May on the Rowley Mile course. Racing fans travel the world over to soak up the atmosphere and watch as Europe’s finest horses take centre stage.

Saturday of the festival holds the first classic of the year, the QIPCO 2,000 Guineas. Open to three-year-old colts, this race started in 1809 and is now widely regarded at the most prestigious race for this age bracket. It also serves as the opening race for the Triple Crown, a series of races followed by the Derby and St Leger, a feat of winning all three is rarely accomplished and highly sought after.

Sunday features the second classic, the QIPCO 1,000 Guineas. This highly prestigious race is run over the same distance as the 2,000 but is exclusive to three-year-old fillies and is part of the Fillies’ Triple Crown, followed by the Oaks and the St Leger classics later in the year.

It’s easy to see at Newmarket why the sport of kings is so popular, with the QIPCO Festival bringing style, sophistication and of course exhilarating racing entertainment.
