Historic Win For Wonderful Winx

Winx does it again, eclipses all-time greats

Ridden by Hugh Bowman, Winx (2-11) challenged for the lead with more than a quarter-mile remaining before taking the lead with more than a furlong remaining.

Winx latest win sees her become just the second horse to win three successive Cox Plates, a feat previously achieved by the legendary Kingston Town.

Seven horses signed up to race her with Humidor, the 13-1 shot domestically, her toughest challenger.

Winx, who has now won 26 of her 32 career starts, also matched the Australasian record of 15 Group 1 wins set by former sprinting star Black Caviar.

Just as she's done in so many of her historic wins, Winx ambled up on the leaders, appearing as comfortable as ever.

In joining Kingston Town as a three-time victor of Australia's most prestigious weight-for-age race, Winx also took her sequence to 22 consecutive victories.

Winter Weather Advisory Issued For The Northland
The weather improves for Halloween, with partly to mostly sunny skies forecast and a high of 59 degrees, forecasters say. This National Weather Service video discusses the weekend forecast , which includes snow in northern Wisconsin.

He said Winx would only travel if she was at her peak. Ultimately the line came in time and Winx won by a half-length under a vigorous handride, while this season's G1 Makybe Diva S. victor Humidor put up an admirable display and firmed into favouritism for the November 7 G1 Melbourne Cup.

Blake Shinn, who went into the Cox Plate in bullish mood after winning four races on the undercard, told Racenet.com.au after almost pulling the upset of the century, "I thought when I made a run we were a real chance but Winx is a champion, she just keeps responding under pressure".

While giving due credit to Kingston Town, Tighe said Winx had created her own record by becoming the first mare to win three Cox Plates.

".She will be recognized as one of the greatest horses to grace the Australian turf, and to be part of her career, I can't explain how much that means". Winx has won five races since returning from a four-month break in mid-August.

The Cox Plate is Australia's leading weight-for-age race.
