Winx Holds Safe in Record Time for Cox Plate Victory

Winx Holds Safe in Record Time for Cox Plate Victory

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.

"I was born the year that Kingston Town (the other three-time victor of the Cox Plate) won his first Cox Plate and to think that she has emulated the great ... trying to compare one horse to another, they are always different animals at the end of the day, but we are in the presence of greatness".

Jockey Hugh Bowman needed to ride Winx out more than usual, but the Street Cry (IRE) mare won by a comfortable-enough half-length at the finish in a course-record time of 2:02.94.

"She has just made history".

"She's a lot stronger - as a rough guide, her first Cox Plate she was 505kg, her second Cox Plate she was 515kg, and yesterday she was about 526kg".

'She's a great horse and it's a privilege for me and my family to be part of this'.

"You don't have any emotion watching her". I have had an wonderful career and Winx delivered me my first major group one in this exact race three years ago and she has now delivered me with my only other two.

"It wasn't an easy victory, she had to be good to fight Humidor", Winx's trainer Chris Waller said after the race. She has won nine races this year.

"When you're thinking about the horse and the competition she's going to be up against, whether it be two weeks, whether it be in the autumn or whether it be the other side of the world, she'll only take them on if she's at her very best".

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.

Winx recovers at Altona Beach after winning her third Cox Plate. But trying to compare one horse to another, they're all different.

In the lead-up to today's race Waller told Racing.com that Winx was a "heavenly gift".

"She's an animal that we love and horses come first in this sport".

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's in fantastic form", he said.
