The Group 3 Thousand Guineas Prelude is set to run at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday September 22, 2012.
Run over a distance of 1,400 metres, the 2012 Thousand Guineas Prelude is worth $175,000 in prize money.
The 2012 Thousand Guineas Prelude is open to three-year-old fillies only and is run under set weight plus penalty conditions.
The Thousand Guineas Prelude is an important form guide for the $500,000 Thousand Guineas later in the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.
Last year’s winner of the Thousand Guineas Prelude was Bliss Street.
Bliss Street initially won the race in a dead heat with Celebrity girl, however, won the race on protest after Celebrity Girl was relegated to fourth by Hallowell Belle.
The three-year-old Bliss Street then went on to place second in the Group 2 Manifold Stakes at her next start.
Bliss Street has won four of her 17 race starts and earned more than $380,000 in prize money.
