The 1,000 Guineas Trial Stakes was a flat horse race in Great Britain open to three-year-old thoroughbred fillies. It was run over a distance of 7 furlongs (1,408 metres), and it was scheduled to take place each year in early April.

History[edit]

The event was originally held at Ascot.[1] The present grading system was introduced in 1971, and the race was classed at Group 3 level. It was staged at Newmarket in 1978,[2] and transferred to Salisbury in 1979.[3] It was relegated from Group 3 status in 1983, and discontinued after 1986.

The race served as a trial for the 1,000 Guineas Stakes. The last horse to win both events was Full Dress in 1969.

The equivalent race for colts was the 2,000 Guineas Trial Stakes.
