Australian Horse of the Year Winx returned to the racetrack a winner on Monday when she powered to a 2 3/4-length victory in the Group 2 Apollo Stakes at Randwick Racecourse.
It was the 14th consecutive victory for the 5-year-old mare by Street Cry, which matches the feat of the mighty Phar Lap.
The seven-furlong Apollo was originally scheduled to be run Saturday, but was postponed due to extreme heat. Off a step slowly in the race, Winx raced in mid-pack through the early stages of the race. She took command in the stretch, accelerating past the leaders to draw off to win convincingly.
According to Racing.com, Winx will make her next start in the G1 Chipping Norton Stakes in two weeks.
