Winx (Hugh Bowman) - Chelmsford S.

Australian wondermare Winx extended her unbeaten streak to a remarkable 20 victories on Saturday, cruising to the front in final furlong of the Group 1 George Main Stakes at Randwick.

“Today I expected to be closer to the speed but the pace was strong,” jockey Hugh Bowman told racing.com. “At the top of the straight she had a lot of ground to make up but after her last two performances I knew she could do it, I am just so proud of her.”

Winx is expected to run once more before the mare makes a try for a historic third consecutive Cox Plate. She will either appear in the listed Craven Stakes or Group 1 Caufield Stakes, both on Oct. 14.

“True champions normally come out and win,” said trainer Chris Waller.
