I applied for a job with the wrong phone number - how to fix?

I recently applied for a job, which directed applicants to send a resume, cover letter, and list of references to HR at a certain email address. My list of references has a heading that's the same as the one on my resume: name, phone number, email address, etc.
After I clicked "send," I realized that my references list still had my old phone number on it (although my resume had the current one). How do I fix this? I'm afraid that if I email them again, it will just draw attention to the error and I'll get put in the "reject" pile automatically.
I did receive an email reply stating they had received my application and if they wanted an interview, they'd call me. Should I just reply back with a note about the phone number? Or should I assume they'll use the number on my resume and not look at the references unless they actually decide to hire me?
