CHAMPION mare Winx, the world’s best horse on turf, has won the Gr2 Apollo Stakes over 1400m for a 14th-straight victory. This is the same record achieved by Australia’s legendary racer, Phar Lap.
The Chris Waller-trained Winx (High Bowman) returned to the track at Royal Randwick in Sydney on Monday for the first time since winning the Gr1 WS Cox Plate last October.
Winx, who now has 18 wins from 24 starts, never looked in doubt as she streaked home ahead of Hartnell and Endless Drama.
Waller said his mare could not have had a better build-up.
“This preparation has been the best she’s had,” Waller said.
