Elite Elle Eyes 2012 Thousand Guineas Start – Race Preview

June 27th, 2012

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.”
