Winx Looks To Make Her Record Unbreakable On Saturday

Winx Looks To Make Her Record Unbreakable On Saturday

The Aussie wondermare Winx will chase her 32nd successive win in a row, when competing in what will be her penultimate appearance in her illustrious career, in the George Ryder Stakes on Saturday.

A race she has won for the last three years running headlines a cracking card at Rosehill, which also features the Golden Slipper - the nation's most formidable two year-old bout.

Rosehill has thrown up testing conditions in the last two years, and neither trainer Chris Waller nor jockey Hugh Bowman believed the expected conditions will be a cause of concern for the 8yo bidding for her 24th Group One victory. 

(Credit: Racing Post) Bowman said: "She ticks all the boxes and I think one of her best runs came in this race two years ago, when it was a very heavy track.

"With an expected wet track on Saturday it just gives us more confidence than we already had."

Winx is expected to sign off in style with her incredible career in next month's Queen Elizabeth Stakes across town in Randwick, another race she is seeking an prodigious four-timer in.

Trainer Chris Waller admitted that the George Ryder will be an emotional occasion for all at Rosehill, as the wondermare prepares to bring the curtain down.

"It's been her place of training for the majority of her career, it's where she lives and it's her home track," said Waller.

"It's very likely to be her last run here. We'll get sentimental after the race no doubt but at this stage it's full steam ahead."

Waller's other stable star The Autumn Sun will continue his impressive campaign in the Rosehill Guineas earlier in the day.

The Autumn Sun - certainly a name to keep in mind in the years to come, and who's Dam Sire is Galileo, gave supporters a scare when coming from near last to first over a mile at Randwick two weeks ago, and is attempting a step-up to ten furlongs for the first time.

Eminent - (remember him); well he is now officially named 'He's Eminent' in Australia, and is among the others eleven lining up in the Ranvet Stakes.

Fourth to Wings Of Eagles' in the 2017 Epsom Derby, the former Martyn Meade-trained five-year-old never went onto fulfil his potential, despite landing a Group Two at Deauville, France.

He has since been sent to Sir Mark Todd to be trained in the far South-East, before a future stud career.

Todd told racing.com: "James McDonald has done a few pieces of work on him and is happy so we're hoping we've got him somewhere near his best three-year-old form.

"If he's like that, he could be competitive on Saturday."

Oisin Murphy is another name we know very well at home, and he travels down under for one ride in the £1.9million Golden Slipper - aboard Loving Gaby, but will need to handle stall 15 if prevailing.
