Winx created history when she equalled legendary Kingston Town’s three wins in the ‘Weight For Age Championship’ with her long neck win over Humidor in last Saturday’s Group 1 $3m Ladbrokes Cox Plate (2040m) at The Valley.

Winx also claimed her fifteenth Group 1 win and her twenty-second win on the trot which took her overall prizemoney to $15,627,925.

Trainer Chris Waller has reported that Winx has pulled up in great shape but a decision on whether she has another run during the Melbourne Spring Carnival in the Group 1 $2m Emirates Stakes (2000m) at Flemington on November 11 is still up in the air.

“Remarkably well. She’s very bright; she’s just got back from the beach this morning (Sunday),” Waller told RSN 927’s Correct Weight on Sunday morning.

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

“It’s more important about that than any other part of the weekend.

“She’s an amazing athlete, and firstly, that helps her race so well, and secondly, it helps her recover so quickly as well.”

“She certainly seems to take it well in her stride.

Winning jockey Hugh Bowman gave Winx a trouble free run throughout the Ladbrokes Cox Plate and then the mighty mare found another gear to hold off the challenge of the Darren Weir trained Humidor.

“She will now go down in history as one of the greatest horses to ever grace the Australian turf. Yes she most certainly will,” Bowman said.
