Winx Has Won Her 32nd Straight Race

Winx extends record-winning run with fourth consecutive George Ryder Stakes at Rosehill

The Hugh Bowman-ridden horse breezed through the field coming off the bend at Rosehill, pulling away to win by three lengths from Brutal and Dreamforce.

Group 1 events are the highest class of thoroughbred racing, attracting the best horses and highest prize money.

Winx beat Black Caviar's Australian win record in August 2018 with her 26th consecutive victory.

"About half-way down the straight we were pretty confident that she was going to go on with it".

She surpassed retired northern hemisphere jumper Hurricane Fly s then-record 22 Group 1 victories at the Chipping Norton Stakes earlier this month.

"She did what she does best and just put them all to the sword."

Waller is certainly not anxious about the wet track said that Winx heads to Rosehill in first class order following her two Sydney Autumn Carnival wins at Randwick in the Group 2 $250,000 The Star Apollo Stakes (1400m) on February 16 and in the Group 1 $600,000 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) on March 2. "As long as she pulls up okay and everything is right tonight, we'll be back in three weeks to hopefully finish her career on a winning note". "I'm glad that she does it, not just for us, but for everybody".

The mare, trained by Chris Waller, won the race for the fourth straight year in what may be her penultimate outing.

"When I asked her to stretch she responded and you could hear the crowd roar".

"She's just a favourite, she's everyone's favourite", Tighe said.

That would mean the Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Randwick on April 13 will be her final race.
