Winx makes history with third Cox Plate victory in Australia

Winx does it again, eclipses all-time greats

The six-year-old was fractious in the starting stalls, but jumped out cleanly and travelled with her usual exuberance in the hands of Hugh Bowman.

"It's more important about that than any other part of the weekend".

But despite Winx's incredible performance, one record she has yet to beat is the fastest time on the 2040m sprint.

Earlier in the day the mare appeared relaxed and calm as she was brought to her stall to prepare for the run.

"You don't have any emotion watching her".

"You've got the elite horses, the elite jockeys but it's one of those days where everything has fallen into place".

Waller had said that there was "a bit of confidence" going into the race, with Winx rated a $1.15 chance to defeat the other eight in the field.

"I'm thinking "Hughie, just hit her".

"It was close, as you would expect in a Cox Plate", he said.

"She's made history. I was born the year Kingston Town won his first Cox Plate and she has emulated the great".

Trainer Chris Waller is due to fly into Melbourne on Tuesday to make a decision on whether the three-time victor of Australasia's weight-for-age championship will have a spring carnival swansong in the Emirates Stakes at Flemington in a fortnight.

Blake Shinn and Humidor then found clear air on the outside and stormed home down the narrow Mooney Valley straight, leaving hearts in mouths as Winx's unbeaten run looked under threat.

Connections have previously revealed a potential European campaign, including an appearance at Royal Ascot, is under consideration for next year, but Waller is keen to enjoy the moment. She'll only go if she's still at her very best.

"She does love it here, there's no doubt about that", he said. "I don't think we could've done it with any less [than four lead-up races]", Waller added.

Providing some fierce competition was Humidor and Folkswood who finished the race in second and third position respectively.

Trainer Darren Weir is now looking forward to a tilt at the Melbourne Cup on November 7.

"It was a great run today, but I'd rather we'd won".

"The plan was to go back and ride him to be strong through the line to see whether we can push on for a Melbourne Cup".
