Winx Wins 28 Races in a Row, Next Stop: Cox Plate 2018
Another magnificent performance was displayed by Winx during the Turnbull Stakes at Flemington in Melbourne. Australia’s wonder mare started trailing last but accelerated during the last stages of the race to finish first, completing a fantastic 28-winstreak record and in a nail-biting fashion.
Now that they have ticked-off the Turnbull Stakes, trainer Chris Waller and his team are starting their preparations for the Cox Plate. They are on the helm for a fourth consecutive Cox Plate win for Australia’s most talked about horse.
According to Waller, Winx was back on the track yesterday morning for some light runs for this week and they are planning on doing a little bit more next week and towards the week before the race. He is confident enough that she will take improvement from the runs in the next three weeks or so preparing her. This also sends a signal to all of Waller’s rivals warning them that it will be a tough competition come the 27th of October at The Valley.
Praising the champion mare, Waller said that he is truly privileged to be training Winx who has won 32 races overall and on her road to shattering the $20 million earning bracket.
