2014 Melbourne Festival of Racing: Australian Guineas
February 26, 2014 by Marc Jerbs

On Saturday, the Flemington Racecourse in Victoria, Australia will host the Australian Guineas. The Australian Guineas is a Group 1 horse race for three year olds and run at set weights over a distance of 1600 meters.

The Australian Guineas is scheduled as the 7th race of the day and posted race time is set at 4:20PM local time. The total prize money for this race is set at A$500,000.

A field of 14 horses has qualified for the Australian Guineas. Among the entrants are CS Hayes Stakes winner Hucklebuck, Cox Plate winner Shamus Award and CF Orr Stakes runner-up Eurozone.

The race handicappers have installed Hucklebuck as the favorite to win the Australian Guineas. Shamus Award and Eurozone could thwart the aspirations of Hucklebuck on Saturday.
