Godolphin fillies Kiamichi, Lyre and Exhilarates are among a record 285 three-year-old fillies nominated for the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) set for October 12 at Caulfield.

With the prize money doubled to $1 million for this year's edition, entries have rocketed to a record 285 from 262 and 237 in the previous two years respectively.

Godolphin have kept their options open with Group 1-winning fillies Kiamichi, the James Cummings-trained Golden Slipper heroine, and the Anthony Freedman-trained Lyre, who took out the Blue Diamond Stakes as a two-year-old.

Both fillies have been entered in the Caulfield Guineas as well as the Thousand Guineas.

Godolphin’s Magic Millions winning filly Exhilarates has been nominated for the Thousand Guineas only, as has Mystic Journey’s three-quarter sister Mystical Pursuit.

The winners of both Guineas are eligible for a $1 million bonus if successful in the $5 million Ladbrokes Cox Plate (2040m) at The Valley on October 26.

Beaten Guineas runners are also eligible for the same Cox Plate bonus if they have also contested either the Caulfield Guineas or Thousand Guineas Preludes (Caulfield, 29 September) or the Stutt Stakes (The Valley, 27 September).

Three-year-olds contesting the same pathway of races through the Preludes/Stutt and Guineas are also eligible for a $1 million bonus if successful in the $500,000 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) at Flemington on November 2.

First acceptances for the Thousand Guineas will be taken at 12 noon (AEST) on Tuesday, 10 September 2019.
