The WA Guineas 2020 forms part of Perth Summer Racing Carnival 2020 events that takes place in Perth, Western Australia. The WA Guineas 2020 day is on 21st November 2020, the same day Railway Stakes takes place. This event is held on the first of the main Western Australian race days for the summer period. Horses participating in the WA Guineas are thoroughbred, three years old, and must be of certain standard weights. Unlike in the Railway stakes race whose winner is awarded one million dollars, WA Guineas winners go home with five hundred thousand dollars. The racing event will be hosted at the famous Ascot Racecourse, and the official set distance for the 2020 event is sixteen hundred meters.

WA Guineas 2020 acts as a pacesetter preparing the participants of Group 1 Kingdom Town Classic held two weeks after the WA Guineas Race event. Previously some horses scooped both the WA Guineas and Kingston Town Classic consecutively. These horses include: Ihtsahymn received a double win in 2013, Playing God won both races in 2010, and in 2018 Arcadia Queen became the lucky Horse. On the day of the race, Ascot Racecourse is fully occupied by the lovers of WA Guineas Race and Railways Stakes since the run concurrently.
