The Group 1 Thousand Guineas will take place at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday October 17, 2012.
Run over a distance of 1,600 metres, the 2012 Thousand Guineas is worth $500,000 in prize money.
The 2012 Thousand Guineas is open to three-year-old fillies only and is run under set weight penalty conditions.
Trainer Tony Vasil is already scoping out the 2012 Thousand Guineas for his filly Elite Elle.
The two-year-old has won both her two race starts and is showing promising signs going into the spring carnival.
“I don’t think she needs a big spell. Maybe the early spring races, the Crockett Stakes (over 1,200 Moonee Valley), would suit her,” Vasil said.
“Without getting too over-confident, races like the Thousand Guineas do come to mind.”
