Yes :wub

This will be the hardest race of her life. She hasn't faced many horses of this calibre, altho those she has she has beaten, and she will show her class, when she wins on Saturday.

:wub

Yes today at 4.00 pm Winx will win her 4th Cox Plate. Unprecedented.
Bowman has to show us he has the class to match the horse he rides to victory.

YES.,.!!! :bgrin :bgrin :bgrin :bgrin

I never doubted her, and she surely showed her magnificence. :clap :wub

Bowman rode her a treat.. and barely moved. :bgrin

Loved the Pommie git getting down and kissing the feet of one of the owners. He'd put shit on Winx and Deb challenged him. I didn't see THAT, but I did see the git get down on his knees, and then kiss her feet, because Winx won. Great stuff.!! :thumb


Seriously people... we'll never see another horse ike Winx in our lifetime. 29 wins straight. 4 Cox Plates, in a row....
an outstanding win today, and she barely got puffed.

I do wish that they'd race her over longer distances. SIGH.
She could win the Melbourne Cup. :smitten

So true. She trotted back to the crowd like one of those show ring ponies. Totally relaxed, and sort of......*What's the fuss about. That was just a piss easy race.....no big deal*

I hope they don't retire her.

me too, and they won't... she is going to race as long as she is fit, and willing.

Didn't she look mag today.? IN HER PRIME. :rose


The owner's have the say, but there really is no point in retiring her at this stage.
They'll NOT take her overseas either. If any other's want to come take her on, they're welcome.

I agree with that. They come here. She has SFA to prove.

Of course, the beaten brigade will make it harder to attract opponents in future.

The new crop of youngsters will try to take her on.
Or the next attempt by internationals.

Bring'm on. :rose

so the euphoria has faded, but I could watch that race again and again.

In fact all her 29 winning streak races are worth watching, all in a row, because she is amazing. Astonishing, magnificent, brilliant, all those words apply to Winx.


She could win next year's Caulfield Cup easy peasy. An extra 360 metres would mean nothing to her.
She is now in her prime, strong, and fit.
People said she could have gone around again, she pulled up so well.
Well lots of commentators said that... her team were more circumspect.
But you know ? she could... which would mean she could also win a Melbourne Cup. :bgrin :wub
