Winx wins Cox Plate for third straight year

Posted October 30, 2017

In joining Kingston Town as a three-time victor of Australia's most prestigious weight-for-age race, Winx also took her sequence to 22 consecutive victories yesterday.

Waller and Winx's owners were still basking in the glow of a heart-stopping third Cox Plate win on Sunday, stressing it was not a fait accompli the horse would embark on a European campaign next year which could take in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.

While Waller admits there is pressure associated with a horse like no other, her jockey Hugh Bowman is ever cool even if he is churning inside.

"She's very bright, she's just got back from the beach this morning", Waller said on RSN.

Winx recorded a new track record for the 2040m journey with a winning time of 2:02.94, which was four one hundredths of a second faster than the 2:02.98 she set in winning her first Ladbrokes Cox Plate in 2015.

"She will will be recognised as one of the greatest horses to grace the Australian turf and to be a part of her career, I can't explain how much that means". 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.

Bowman said former Kiwi trainer Chris Waller deserved all the credit for guiding Winx on career that has netted an Australian record 15 group one wins.

"She finds a way to win like all champions do". Seven horses signed up to race her with Humidor, the 13-1 shot domestically, her toughest challenger. We will just look at her and see how she has recovered.

He will aim for another with Humidor who ran fifth in last week's Caulfield Cup and backed up because the trainer was unhappy with how he was ridden.

"Fortunately we got the upper hand and yeah, well done to the connections of all runners".

She moved menacingly to the front rounding the home turn and while Humidor briefly threatened to cause a huge upset, finishing strongly in the closing stages of the 10-furlong contest, Winx had enough in reserve to hold him at bay.

Only 11 horses have won more successive races than Winx's 22, several of them in lower-level racing jurisdictions and against less-than-top quality opposition.

Racing NSW and the Australian Turf Club have also pitched the idea of Winx racing in next year's The Everest - Waller holds a slot in the $10million race - as the pursuit to host worldwide racing's most marketable asset heats up.

The Cox Plate is Australia's leading weight-for-age race. "We would love to have her".
