QIPCO 2000 Guineas Classic


Classics are a group of historic major races for three-year-olds in the Flat season. In Britain the five Classics are the 2,000 and 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket, the Oaks and Derby at Epsom and the St Leger at Doncaster.  A Classic contender is a horse being aimed at one of these races or is regarded as having the potential to compete at that level.
