Well looking at some of the data that has come up here, by posters with an interest, I wouldn't dream of denying that.

Magnificent.

Is Winx bigger than Makybe Diva now- ? I used to follow horses but haven't been for a while now- I never saw Makybe but she has a statue erected to her in Port Lincoln- its beautiful- I just read that Makybe died in 2013- skull fracture - I didnt even know :sad she was a clever girl

The same as Makybediva…?

No.

Its like apples and oranges. Makybediva was an utter freak at distance races. The greatest I've ever seen.
When it comes to the Cups, she is a standalone freak. In recent racing history, Ethereal, who won two straight comes close. (Caulfield/Melbourne Cup)


Winx doesn't run at those stayer distances, but she is incredibly versatile, and probably could win a Caulfield or Melbourne Cup, she is that good. But her owners and trainer are nurturing her. She could go on undefeated for years, barring bad luck, always a factor.

I love horses, but I don't necessarily love the Racing Industry.

Same and I am sorry I stopped taking any notice because of it- I have missed out on a lot esp Maykybe Diva and Im now missing out on Winx- but now tuning back in- where i live commercial tv so bad - not worth having- and i miss out on all the racing because of it- channel 7 streams it live i think- will have to check that out-

same here. I don't want to go to the local to watch... Winx will race on Saturday.

Reports from the stable says all is great with the magnificent Winx. :bgrin

Guess I'll have to buy the paper and check out the field. Could look on-line, but it annoys me because I will not pay.

Yeah was really enjoying the Seven Coverage of the Racing Carnivals, but that stopped ….. Seven sponsored The Queensland Winter Racing, BUT NEVER PUT IT TO AIR. Don't know why. :sad

WINX
:bgrin
:bgrin

It is s'posed to be on free-to-air on 7. But they've fucked up so far, and there's nothing in my TV guide to show its on. To be Advised from 2pm. :roll

Another mighty win by Winx. :bgrin

Channel Seven actually put a half an hour into the Race meet. I thank them for that.... :roll

Really poor form from Ch 7.
But the interviews with Waller before and after the race were excellent.
And Bowman?? told us the truth... she'd win with just about any capable jockey on her back. Well said Hugh Bowman.

Winx the Magnificent. :bgrin

I s'pose I don't have to tell you she just won her 26th STRAIGHT WIN. :yahoo

Makes me feel good to watch her run. Her authority, her dominance...… Magnificent.

She'll race next in the George Main in a month or so.. same path taken in previous years to The WS Cox Plate.!

She'll be going for 4 straight Cox Plates. :thumb

So September 15 will see Winx the Magnificent race again.

The George Main Stakes - 1600 m (approx. 1 mile)

.. then at least one more race before her tilt at the NEXT WS COX PLATE. !! Should she win 4 in a row...!! ??

Well jeez I'll be so happy.


No YeS she is so exquisite she defies description

The Mighty Winx races again tomorrow.. at Randwick, at 3.10 pm. AEST

It is an excellent field... and if you take Winx out of the mix?
Very difficult to call the placegetters.

Channel Seven put it up free-to-air .. so from 12.00 some good racing to watch.

But the champ of the day is Winx.

They're taking her out to the mile, so that she's building up for the Cox Plate. :bgrin

Have no doubt. barring BAD LUCK, or whatever, she'll win again tomorrow. :rose

Winx the Magnificent won her 27th straight race today. :yahoo :yahoo :yahoo :wub :wub :wub
Also her 20th Group One win. She has won 30 of 36 races, the last 27 consecutively.

She is now the 5th highest stakes winner in racing history, worldwide. The rest of the Spring Carnival, including the WS Cox Plate is likely to see her reach the top of that field.. as well.

Her next likely race is a lead-up race to her 4th COX PLATE win :bgrin coming to your screens soon. :thumb

could be the Turnbull stakes, in 3 weeks. Not sure if that is confirmed yet.


Watched the Ch 7 broadcast from about 1.00 pm.. not bad … but oh those lily-livered commentators... :roll When it came to the race...

Winx was running absolutely true to her normal pattern. Bowman, for some reason decided to hit her with the whip a couple of times. (arsehole)
Coming up to the real race... the last 400 mtr.. she knew what she was doing … he's just sitting on her back to make it legal... :mad

and the commentators, all gasped... oh NO. :OMG :huh :WTF .. I mean really they all should have known better
than to DOUBT THE MIGHTY WINX. :mad


Bunch of wankers :bgrin

The Turnbull Stakes, over 2000m , tomorrow.

:rose

She's going to win her 28th straight win, and her 21st Group One win. :bgrin

Free-to-air on Channel Seven, and I'll be watching.

It is a very interesting field this year. There are some stunning performers taking on Winx this time, not just the same old beaten opponents.

I find GRUNT an astonishing animal... and he would be my pick for second place. Perhaps Youngstar for third.? Don't quote me. :bgrin :roll

Nah this is a tougher than usual race... Winx will win... :wub

it's the also rans that will prove significant for the rest of the Spring Carnival.

YES and barring bad luck she will go on from this to win her 4th WS Cox Plate. :clap :clap :rose

One of a kind, I watched the race today and you could be forgiven for thinking she couldn't win.

You could be, but you aren't. :bgrin :yahoo :clap :rose :wub :wub :wub

What a horse. :wub :wub :wub :wub :wub :wub :wub :wub :wub

I never doubted her, but not that impressed with Bowman's ride. :yak yak

But it didn't matter. :bgrin :bgrin :bgrin :bgrin :yahoo :rose

Yesterday's racing has added some spice to the field for the WS Cox Plate in 2 weeks at Moonee Valley Racecourse.

Winx will be winning her 4th straight WS Cox Plate. :bgrin

But it seems this year she will be facing many more horses from the northern hemisphere, who have been racing here in prep for the Cox Plate. Some strong showings this weekend.

It will a different race this year, :roll but none of them will beat Winx, (as long as she gets a good ride), and barring bad luck on the lead-up.

Anything is possible in racing.

It will be intriguing.
Weight-for-Age over 2040m.

Only Bowman can defeat Winx.
He tried hard last time, but she won anyway.

A message for Mr Bowman.......


Do NOT trap her at the end of the field.....

Tomorrow we have the Caulfield Cup. (2400m)

The outcome will impact on the field for The WS Cox Plate.
Some runners are claiming a go at Winx.
Let's just wait and see. :bgrin

well that was a wake up call for all Australian owners and trainers.

Looks like we have some significant new challengers for Winx in the next Cox Plate, NEXT SATURDAY.!! :jump I'm so excited :bgrin

The world has come to take her on, and the rest of the Spring Carnival ribbons.!

The Caulfield Cup, yesterday, shows us a whole new brace of challengers,...….. Northern Hemisphere (NH) horses, brought here to win the major races this Spring Carnival. The first five place-getters in the race were ALL from the NH. A clear dominance, ..a lesson in class.
It also applied in some other races...

The field for The 2018 WS COX PLATE is going to be fascinating.


This could be the race of her life... :bgrin but she'll win as long as she has no accidents or bad luck.
Winx the Magnificent is in for the race of her life..!!!
Bowman MUST show his class as well, because this is THE RACE for WINX.
4 consecutive WS COX PLATE wins :bgrin :rose :rose :smitten :wub
