VIDEO: Wonderful Winx bows out in perfect style
on 13 April 2019
The great mare has now retired following her record-breaking 25th Group 1 victory

AUSTRALIAN wonder-mare Winx signed off her brilliant career in the best possible fashion when dazzling the crowd in the Longines Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Randwick.

Winning for the 33rd time in succession, and the 25th time at Group 1 level, Chris Waller’s pride and joy has rightly been afforded superstar status by the Australian media.

The seven-year-old, who survived a scare on Thursday when kicking out at railings and leaving a hole in an advertising board after her final gallop, came with her customary run from half a mile out, as the grandstands began to erupt.

Rounding the bend widest of all, Hugh Bowman pressed the button with a furlong and a half to run and his partner began to hit top gear, sprinting clear to beat Kluger with plenty in hand, if not by overly far.
