Australian super-horse Winx – whose 33-race win streak ran from May 2015-April 2019 – has settled into her new surroundings and seems very content in her retirement but as one chapter closes, another opens as Winx now embarks on her career as a broodmare.
The ownership group of Peter and Patty Tighe (Magic Bloodstock), Richard Treweeke and Debbie Kepitis are now excited to announce her covering sire for the 2019 breeding season.
As owners, we have utilized and considered the expert advice of bloodstock professionals both domestically and internationally. We have sought the opinions of various pedigree consultants, bloodstock agents and stud managers. They provided us with the foundation of information to assess and use to compile the short list of stallions for consideration. This process highlighted the extreme depth to the stallion ranks in Australia and across the world, however when considering the options of traveling overseas her welfare remained of the highest priority and we decided she would remain in Australia for her first breeding season.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of those who made expressions of interest, the level of attention was overwhelming and something we are very grateful for.
In closing, we are delighted to announce that Winx will visit I Am Invincible for the 2019 breeding season.
By Invincible Spirit, I am Invincible stands at Yarraman Park in Scone, New South Wales. He was Australia's leading freshman sire in the 2013-14 season and recently made history by siring a record 28 Australian stakes winners in a season, including Group 1 winners Oohood, Voodoo Lad, Viddora and Invincibella. The latter is trained by Chris Waller, who conditioned Winx.
Invincible Spirit, the sire of I Am Invincible, is by Green Desert, a son of the Northern Dancer stallion Danzig.
Winx is by Street Cry, a son of the Mr. Prospector stallion Machiavellian.
