Winx | Bronwen Healy

Fresh off her 21st consecutive victory in the G1 Turnbull S. on Saturday, champion Winx (Aus) (Street Cry {Ire}) exited the race in good order. The Chris Waller trainee will next attempt to complete a G1 Cox Plate hat trick on Oct. 28, with Kingston Town (Aus) (Bletchingly {Aus}) the only previous three-time victor.

“She ate up last night and we’re happy with her this morning for sure,” Johanne Taylor told Racenet.com Sunday. “We all know what she’s capable of and without the ear muffs yesterday she really woke up. It was very special, a bit overwhelming and she’s just a once in a lifetime horse. Our job now is to keep her safe and happy to the Cox Plate. It’s fantastic to see the reception she gets from the crowd–she’s a bit like a rockstar and I think she knows it too.”
