In 1946, Sweet Crime won the first running of the Thousand Guineas. The race was over 8 furlongs up until 1972, when it was standardised to 1600 metres.
The fastest track time over the current distance was 1:35.60, which Arborea managed to hit in 1993. The closest any horses have come to this in the past 10 years were Serious Speed (2007) and All Time High (2000) at 1:36.30 as well as Special Harmony (2003) and Macedon Lady (2002) at 1:36.40.
The most successful jockey in the Thousand Guineas has been the great Damien Oliver, who has been atop the winning horse four times. Three of those have been quite recent, and punters at sites like Ladbrokes.com.au have learnt to watch Oliver for an indication of the Thousand Guineas winner.
