Winx makes it 22 straight - just - with Cox Plate win

Winx makes it 22 straight - just - with Cox Plate win

Fresh off emulating Kingston Town with a hat-trick of successes in the weight-for-age championship at Moonee Valley, Winx dipped her famous legs into the Altona Beach waters to recuperate.

The win takes the Chris Waller-trained mare to first on the all-time leading prizemoney earners for Australian racehorses, eclipsing the $15 million mark, as well as her 15th Group 1 victory.

"I'm lost for words", jockey Hugh Bowman said, still aboard Winx after her win.

"We are in the presence of greatness and she will be recognised as one of the greatest horses to have graced the Australian turf". I don't know if there is a right way to train Winx or not, but one thing I'll tell you is she'll rise to any challenge you give her. "She's unbeaten for nearly three years now, and I'd be lying if I said I didn't go to bed at night thinking of her getting beaten".

Trainer Chris Waller is letting the dust settle following Winx's record-equalling third straight Cox Plate victory before announcing what lies ahead for his superstar mare. She is the type of horse that you dream of. She has won nine races this year.

Just as she's done in so many of her historic wins, Winx ambled up on the leaders, appearing as comfortable as ever. We will just look at her and see how she has recovered.

Winx, who may compete at England's Royal Ascot meeting next June, is also expected to pass American dirt runner Arrogate as the overall top-rated horse in the world when the next set of World Thoroughbred Rankings compiled by the France-based International Federation of Horseracing Authorities comes out in November.

"Jo Taylor and the staff said she's fantastic, so that was music to my ears".

"Fortunately we've never gone run one too far and fortunately we've got a horse that's come back and rewarded us each and every preparation".

Waller had said that there was "a bit of confidence" going into the race, with Winx rated a $1.15 chance to defeat the other eight in the field. They have run second to a very good horse.

Trainer Chris Waller is due to fly into Melbourne on Tuesday to make a decision on whether the three-time victor of Australasia's weight-for-age championship will have a spring carnival swansong in the Emirates Stakes at Flemington in a fortnight.

"She does love it here, there's no doubt about that", he said.
