Winx wins Winx Stakes in a breeze

Winx trained by Chris Waller was ridden to victory by Hugh Bowman on Saturday

Australian champion thoroughbred Winx claimed a Group 1 race named in her honor at Royal Randwick on Saturday to notch a national record 26th successive win and overhaul the great Black Caviar.

"What she's doing for sport and Australian racing, we should all take a bow and say: 'well done, Winx'".

Settling towards the rear after jumping fairly, Winx announced herself in her usual fashion at 100m mark, before accelerating away for dominant win over Invitus Prince.

Winx's cheque in today's race pushed her earnings past $19 million, the most ever achieved by a horse in the Southern Hemisphere. "She didn't start maturing until well into her four-year-old year, and she only really races for three or four runs a prep", Waller said. "Haven't seen one ounce of it". I think that's helped us preserve her and helped her keep that inspiration to do what she does.

Winx was settled among the pack for much of the race but, as she's done so often, exploded down the straight, showing the acceleration that's made her so special.

Test debutant Rishabh Pant had added just two runs to his overnight 22 when he dragged a Stuart Broad delivery onto his stumps. It was 38th Test match of Virat Kohli as skipper and it was also 38th time in a row when Indian squad was changed.

Before today the champion mare had won the past two Warwick Stakes when the race was run as a Group 2 event. She won by a couple of lengths.

Superstar: Winx has eclipsed the record set by Black Caviar.

"Generally, she only has three to five runs every preparation".

The Snitzel full brother to Sweet Idea showed he was in for a lucrative spring when he beat home Hartnell and others impressively.
