Superstar Winx clinches third straight Cox Plate title

Chris and Stephanie Waller have come along way since going to the same school at Foxton

Chris and Stephanie Waller have come along way since going to the same school at Foxton

But such are the champion qualities of Winx, Chris Waller can now breathe easy after she held off the challenge from Humidor to win a record-equalling third Cox Plate on Saturday.

Winx won her 22nd successive race by taking out the 2,040m weight-for-age event, rated by many as the top-quality race in Australia and New Zealand.

"To be able to manage an animal like this and bring her back three years in a row to peak on one particular day, I think it goes unnoticed". "Winx delivered me my first major Group 1 race three years ago and she's now delivered me my only other two".

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

She had to contend with just eight competitors today, with the morning scratching of Kaspersky.

"You don't have to make her run faster".

"We are in the presence of greatness", an emotional Bowman said after the race.

".She will be recognized as one of the greatest horses to grace the Australian turf, and to be part of her career, I can't explain how much that means".

Winx kicked off her current streak in the 2015 G3 Sunshine Coast Guineas, and she has since thrilled crowds across the country with facile wins in races like the G1 Epsom H., multiple renewals of the G1 Chipping Norton S. and G1 George Ryder S., and at the last two renewals of The Championships in the G1 Doncaster Mile and G1 Queen Elizabeth S., respectively.

"We're unequalled because we own the best mare in the world and the only one to win three Cox Plates", he said.

The second-placed horse Humidor who put in a very fearless effort is part-owned by former All Black Mark Carter, and his brother Mark and sister Rachel. "But this mare, she's a champ, an absolute champ".

Damien Oliver will miss the ride on Melbourne Cup favourite Almandin unless he can successfully appeal a 20-meeting suspension handed down by stewards for his ride on Happy Clapper in the Cox Plate.
