Easy Does it for Winx

Monday, 22nd January 2018

Chris Waller says champion mare Winx will be given a quiet trial when she steps out in the opening 900m heat at Rosehill this morning (8:15am). "I expect her to finish midfield in the trial," Waller told ANZ Bloodstock News. "She has come back well. She is fit and sound but we are all aware she is in the twilight of her career." Waller added: "I actually feel the most relaxed I have felt for a long time training her. Maybe it is because the third Cox Plate is out of the way." Winx (Street Cry-Vegas Showgirl, by Al Akbar) created history in the spring when she joined the legendary Kingston Town as the only horse to win three Cox Plates and surpassed three-time Melbourne Cup winner Makybe Diva to become the greatest prize money earner in Australian racing history. The 15-time Gr1 winner is expected to open her autumn campaign in the Gr2 Apollo Stakes (1400m) in Sydney on 17 February.
