Overseas Campaign Beckons Winx

Tuesday, 23rd January 2018

Trainer Chris Waller says a decision regarding a potential international campaign for Winx will not be made until after she runs in the Gr1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m) in Sydney on 24 March, reports racingnsw.com.au. The champion mare's connections have made it clear they are keen to showcase her exceptional talent on the world stage, with the Royal Ascot meeting in June the primary target. "One thing we respect is how hard it is to travel a horse and to get her home," Waller said. "She will be the best guide. We've given it plenty of thought but it will be after her third run this preparation – probably the George Ryder – before we talk about her future." Waller added: "The Ascot picture is simply to satisfy a lot of people that want her on the other side of the world to perform. To show how good she is. But the horse comes first."
