This information has been carefully compiled but you are advised to double check the data with printed sources as the Museum cannot be held responsible for any errors or omissions. Please note that, for example, Edward VII is always listed with this title (for cross referencing purposes) even though at the time of some of his wins he was still the Prince of Wales - this applies to several individuals who inherited or were given titles in the course of their racing careers.

2000 Guineas
First race: 1809
Usual location: Rowley Mile Racecourse, Newmarket
Current distance: 1 mile
Age: 3 year olds of both sexes but excluding geldings
Weight: Colts carry 9 stone, fillies 8 stone 9lb

The name of this race derives from the fact that a prize of 2000 Guineas was originally guaranteed, irrespective of the number of subscribers. The inaugural race was won by Wizard, belonging to the Yorkshireman Christopher Wilson who was for many years the senior member of the Jockey Club. The first horse to complete the double was Smolensko in 1813.

Perhaps the finest race in recent times was in 1971, when Brigadier Gerard beat Mill Reef into second place, ridden by Joe Mercer. Both horses were true champions, a rare event in a single year.
