It was her third straight win in the Queen Elizabeth - the jewel in the crown of the annual Championships at Sydney Racing HQ.

Camapaigned by Peter Tighe's Magic Bloodstock Racing in partnership with Richard Treweeke and Debbie Kepitis and meticulously managed throughout her career by trainer Chris Waller, Winx, bred by John Camilleri's Fairway Thoroughbreds, was runner-up in the G1 ATC Oaks (2400m) precisely four years and two days ago and she has not lost since.

"I think horses touch generations and you must respect that and people go through different parts of life", Waller said. My team do an awesome job.

Waller said that although her racing career is now over, the seven-year-old daughter of Street Cry would remain at his Rosehill stables or most of the next week so he and her staff could say their farewells.

Until the 1500-metre mark, Winx was in sixth place in the nine-horse field and made the last run within the next 400 metres.

"Everyone watching around the world".

Winx came in wide before breezing past her challengers with 200 metres to go.

"America, Europe. Africa. All over Australia. She has captured the hearts of people all around the world".

Perez was last season's leading scorer with 10 goals in all competitions, including eight in the league. His seven tackles were more than anyone else on the pitch recorded.

Adding to the moment, Winx became the 100th Group One victor for Waller. I'll be forever thankful to her. "But thanks for appreciating her for what she is", Waller said.

Mr Morrison celebrates with Winx fans after the race.

"I hadn't thought about winning a race like today ever in my lifetime", Waller said.

She also finishes her career with world record earnings of more than $26.3 million.

Winx will bow out after 43 starts that delivered 37 wins, including 25 at Group One level.

"I don't think anyone is more deserving than Chris of getting his 100th Group 1 victor with the best horse that has ever gone around in the world, " he said.

Japanese-bred Kluger, a G2 victor in Japan for Carrot Farm who had not won a race since 2016, finished second, beaten 1 1/2 lengths, with Godolphin's veteran G1-winning Hartnell a distant third in the field of nine older runners going 2,000 meters (1 1/4 miles) on good turf in front of a packed house of 43,833 at Randwick racecourse.
