Winx unstoppable on way to Cox Plate trifecta

Winx does it again, eclipses all-time greats

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.

"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".

Winx had to overcome a tough three wide run and sustained a long run from the 800m when Hugh Bowman made a decision to put the pressure on her rival runners.

"I'm lost for words", he said.

"I was born the year Kingston Town won his first Cox Plate and to think that she's emulated the great, it's incredible". Three more successive wins will put her equal with that unbeaten mare's record 25 straight victories.

Just as she's done in so many of her historic wins, Winx ambled up on the leaders, appearing as comfortable as ever.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Release Date Announced For Early November

Waller said while her greatness is heralded by 26 wins, over $15.6million in stakes, and 15 Group 1 successes, he said she recovers like a superior horse, too. The planning of Chris Waller was exceptional again and she has proved how great she is and we have grateful that we own her and grateful that she races here in Australia. She is the type of horse that you dream of.

"We've just got to make sure that challenge isn't a breaking point".

"You never know what is going to happen on a racetrack and it was great to see her moving forward in that normal style, but gee, Humidor gave us a hell of a fight".

Trainer Chris Waller said: "It was close, as you would expect in a Cox Plate".

Who Shot Thebarman settled second last of the seven runners in the Cup (2500m) and came home strongly to beat Libran by a half head with the same margin to Cismonte.

Bowman told www.racing.com: "It's hard to explain really". I've been one of the many people up in the stand admiring this race and admiring the history of this race and Australian sport, so it's very humbling to be on the other side looking at everybody. "We would love to have her".
