Without further ado, here is a look into who I will be betting on for the 2023 Rosehill Guineas at Rosehill Racecourse. As is normal at OnlyRacing, I will provide tips for my best bet, next best, and roughie pick of the day. If you want to see a full set of tips, including exotics and multis, please visit our OnlyRacing Tips page for insights from one of our other experts.

Pericles - BEST BET
What a performance that Pericles put in at Sandown Lakeside Racecourse just a few weeks ago. In that race, Pericles beat out 12 stiff competitors to claim the second victory of his young career that added to what is now a career winnings total of $400,000 AUD.

The expert trainer in James Cummings has been working with Pericles out of Warwick Farm in preparation for the 2023 Rosehill Guineas. Going into the race as a $2.25 favourite according to PlayUp, it will be hard to see someone beating Pericles with James McDonald on the reins.

Lindermann - NEXT BEST

If there is anyone that can beat Pericles in this 2023 Rosehill Guineas, it will most likely be the Chris Waller trained Lindermann. It must be factored in that Lindermann will be racing the 2023 Rosehill Guineas on home turf at Rosehill Racecourse this Saturday the 18th of March 2023.

With a career 2-4-0 record over 10 career races and career prize money of $400,000 AUD, I expect Nash Rawiller to put on a show in the 2023 Rosehill Guineas and we may very well see Lindermann claim victory and a prize of over $300,000.

Williamsburg - ROUGHIE PICK

Williamsburg was my roughie pick at the 2023 Randwick Guineas just weeks ago and I am going with him again for the 2023 Rosehill Guineas. I am still highly impressed with this colt and believe that Gerald Ryan and Sterling Alexiou have created a winner.

At $13.00 odds according to PlayUp, I see Williamsburg as an outside shot to take home the 2023 Rosehill Guineas. However, I will be placing my money on Williamsburg to place in the 2023 Rosehill Guineas. Hopefully these tips will aid you in deciding who to punt on for the 2023 Rosehill Guineas at Rosehill Racecourse.

Race History of the Rosehill Guineas

The history of the Rosehill Guineas at Rosehill Racecourse is one of prestige, boasting such victors as Phar Lap, Anamoe, Tulloch, and Ajax, some of Australia’s greatest racing champions of all time. In this portion of this 2023 Rosehill Guineas preview, we will take a look at the changes over time that have occurred to the Rosehill Guineas.

First held in 1910 and won by Electric Wire, we have seen over 100 iterations of the Rosehill Guineas at Rosehill Racecourse since this historic day with the most recent winner being Anamoe in the 2023 Rosehill Guineas. 

For the first 5 years of the Rosehill Guineas, the race was run at 7 furlongs in length, the equivalent of 1400m. This was changed in 1915 to 1 and 1/8 mile, or 1800m where it stood for over 30 years. As was customary at the time for 2000m races, when the Rosehill Guineas moved to that distance in 1948, it was called 1 and ¼ miles. From 1973 up until today, the Rosehill Guineas is raced at a distance of 2000m at Rosehill Racecourse.

Similarly, to the change in distances for the Rosehill Guineas, the grade for the Rosehill Guineas was changed to Group 1 from a Principal Race in 1980, as was happening at the time across Australian racing.

  • The fastest record finish time in Rosehill Guineas history is shared between Danewin in 1995 and Octagonal in 1996 with a time of 1 minute 59.99 seconds. Spectacularly this time for the Rosehill Guineas was achieved by those two runners in consecutive years at Rosehill Racecourse.
  • 1978 was the only year that did not hold the Rosehill Guineas due to a scheduling change in the New South Wales racing calendar from spring to autumn.
