Historic Win For Wonderful Winx

Posted October 29, 2017

English horse Folkswood ($26) held third, 4-1/4 lengths behind Humidor after racing on the pace set by Gailo Chop while three-year-old Royal Symphony ($19) was fourth.

Trained by Chris Waller, Winx is by far Australia's most popular horse and Horse of the Year for the last two years.

Just as she's done in so many of her historic wins, Winx ambled up on the leaders, appearing as comfortable as ever. "She has just made history", jockey Hugh Bowman told abc.net.au.

The victory capped three brilliant victories at the Valley for the mare, who takes her total career prize money to more than $15 million, with Bowman having piloted her to all three Cox Plate honours. It's been such a build-up and I'm lost for words.

In bowling, the Blackcaps will hope experienced pacers Tim Southee and Trent Boult to provide their side with early breakthroughs. New Zealand came close to winning the series past year before going down 2-3. "The series is on the line", said Southee.

"I was born the year Kingston Town won his first Cox Plate and to think she's emulated the great-trying to compare one horse to another, they're all different animals at the end of the day".

The three-time Melbourne Cup victor was due to partner last year's hero in the race that stops the nation, but he will serve 20 meetings on the sidelines for a bumping duel on Happy Clapper with Dean Yendall's Royal Symphony.

Off at 1-9 in the United States wagering pool, Winx became the all-time Australian leader in Group 1 wins and money earned while joining Kingston Town as the Group 1 Cox plate's only three-time victor.

"Mark said he didn't feel great coming back so we'll have a look at him in the morning", Weir said. Everyone dreams of a horse like this and being a part of a horse like this.
