Winx makes it 20 straight wins in George Main Stakes

16 Septembre 2017

Mighty mare Winx was in cruise control as she worked wide out on the Rosehill course proper with regular jockey Hugh Bowman in the saddle in preparation for her attempt at a 20th consecutive win in Saturday's Group 1 $500,000 George Main Stakes (1600m).

"But Hugh got it right again - that was ideal work", Waller said.

Bowman appeared to have the six-year-old under hard-riding before the home turn but she soon responded and let down with stunning acceleration from the 200m mark.

A victor 12 months prior in the race when defeating Godolphin's pair of Hauraki (Aus) and It's Somewhat, Winx will take on a different line up this year, highlighted by last start G2 Chelmsford S. runner-up Red Excitement (Aus) (Excites ), who showed daring tactics last time out, going out many lengths clear, only to be run down late by the glamour mare.

"I knew she could do it today, I'm just so proud of her".
