Winx Holds Safe in Record Time for Cox Plate Victory

  • Chris Waller will once again team up with Hugh Bowman when Winx races for a third Cox Plate success

"I have had an fantastic career and Winx delivered me my first major Group 1 in this exact race three years ago, and she has now delivered me with my only other two".

Racing Victoria chief steward Terry Bailey reported Oliver is set to contest the penalty, which is déjà vu from 12 months ago when Oliver received an identical sanction for reckless riding in the Blue Sapphire Stakes aboard Flying Artie - a suspension that cost him the Cox Plate ride on Vadamos.

The Cox Plate win gave Winx her 15th Group 1 win, equaling the famous sprinter Black Caviar on Australia's all-time list.

In her latest moment of Australian racing history, Winx became the second horse to win three consecutive runnings of the Group 1 Cox Plate at Moonee Valley Racecourse in Melbourne on Saturday.

"She's in fantastic form", he said. "I'm just glad to be a part of it".

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

"We'll make a decision next week whether she has another run at Flemington or whether she goes for a spell", Waller said.

He said he lied awake at night thinking about Winx's unbeaten streak, which has continued for almost three years.

"She's unbeaten for nearly three years now and I'd be lying if I said I didn't go to bed at night thinking of her record".

"So I'm ready for it".

"I am lost for words".

The great Kingston Town won his hat-trick from 1980 to 1982.

"She's fantastic. She's an unbelievable athlete and that helps her to recover well", he said.

"He's given us all a heart attack.

She'll be well looked after, that I do know".

He will aim for another with Humidor who ran fifth in last week's Caulfield Cup and backed up because the trainer was unhappy with how he was ridden. "But this mare, she's a champ, an absolute champ".
