Winx makes it 28 in a row - where next for the Aussie?

Winx makes it 28 in a row - where next for the Aussie?

Top mare Winx made it 28 consecutive wins at the weekend with an exciting display in the Tab Turnbull Stakes.

She has also won each of her last 21 Group One races, showing that she truly is the cream of the crop down under at this moment in time, though Hugh Bowman appeared to have it all to do heading into the closing stages of the race.

Winx was stuck behind a cluster of competitors heading into the closing stages of the race at Flemington, before stepping up into full gear down the straight to eventually win by a length and continue her incredible winning streak.

Trainer Chris Waller had no real concerns about her chances in the race, even after falling behind. The 1/10 shot soon delivered, with the world record holder looking imperious.

(Credit Sporting Life) Waller said after the race: "The way Hughie rode her was perfect. That's how you ride a racehorse.
"Go to the apprentice school on Monday and show them that and every apprentice will turn out to be a genius if they ride like that."Obviously when you are riding Winx, you do need to try not to get held up. But it's Flemington and he got out with 400 metres to run."At Moonee Valley you are still looking for runs at that stage and at Caulfield you are still looking for runs at that stage, but we are at Flemington."In reality, she only made up five lengths in 400 metres."

Up next for Winx is a highly-anticipated return to Moonee Valley where she will aim to claim yet another record. Victory there would see her become the first ever horse to win the Cox Plate on four separate occasions.

Kingston Town was the last horse to win the race three times in a row back in the 1980s and you certainly wouldn’t it put Winx creating yet another moment of history.

It remains to be seen whether or not she will make the trip to the UK at any point in her career. Now seven-years-old, the most likely race she would compete in is the Prince of Wales’ Stakes at Royal Ascot.
