'In The Presence Of Greatness': Winx Battles To History In Cox Plate

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.

Off at 1-9 in the United States wagering pool, Winx became the all-time Australian leader in Group 1 wins and money earned while joining Kingston Town as the Group 1 Cox plate's only three-time victor.

English horse Folkswood ($26) held third, 4-1/4 lengths behind Humidor after racing on the pace set by Gailo Chop while three-year-old Royal Symphony ($19) was fourth.

Three more successive wins will put her equal with that unbeaten mare's record 25 straight victories.

Waller said Winx had visited the beach this morning and had come through the Cox Plate in good fashion.

She joined the legendary Kingston Town as a three time victor of Australia's premier Weight For Age race, extending her winning streak to 22 in a row today.

"I was concerned for a moment down the straight but she is Winx", he said.

Kid Rock Claims Steve Bannon Pushed Him To Run For Senate
Rock also confirmed to Stern that he is "socially liberal" and "fiscally conservative" after the host pointed out "Rock's condemnation of neo-Nazis" and his "support of gay rights".

"You never know what is going to happen on a race track and it was great to see her moving forward in that normal style, but gee, Humidor gave us a hell of a fight". The Melbourne Cup, a two-mile handicap at Flemington Racecourse on November 7, is that nation's most popular race.

"She's made history. I was born the year Kingston Town won his first Cox Plate and to think she's emulated him".

Winx kicked off her current streak in the 2015 G3 Sunshine Coast Guineas, and she has since thrilled crowds across the country with facile wins in races like the G1 Epsom H., multiple renewals of the G1 Chipping Norton S. and G1 George Ryder S., and at the last two renewals of The Championships in the G1 Doncaster Mile and G1 Queen Elizabeth S., respectively.

"Trying to compare one horse to another is hard, they're all different, but we are in the presence of greatness".

"It was close, as you would expect in a Cox Plate", he said.

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