Winx Best Saved for Record 25

Winx saved her best for her last run for the season when she came from last to thrash her rivals in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Randwick.

In completing her 25th victory in a row, Winx drew level with Black Caviar at that figure and continued her charge towards becoming the first $20 million racehorse in Australia with her prizemoney levels rising beyond an unprecedented $18.88 million. It was her 18th group 1 victory. 

The job was in front of the super mare on turning for home as the leader Gailo Chop surged clear and jockey Hugh Bowman had the entire field in front of him. But Winx found a gear her rivals do not own and she went clear to win by about four lengths from Gailo Chop and Happy Clapper.
