Winx makes history with third Cox Plate victory in Australia

Winx does it again, eclipses all-time greats

Hugh Bowman salutes the sold-out Moonee Valley crowd following Winx's third successive Cox Plate victory.

Winx has won her 22nd straight race and her third successive Cox Plate with a blistering performance at Moonee Valley on Saturday.

In beating former New Zealander Humidor by a long neck, the six-year-old became only the second horse to win three Cox Plates since its inception in 1922.

The champion mare survived a serious challenge from Humidor late in the race to come away with yet another record-breaking victory.

Winx now moves level with Kingston Town for three Cox Plate titles to her name.

Winx also overtook Makybe Diva as Australia's highest stakes earner when she held off Humidor in a closer-than-expected finish.

"I am lost for words", he said.

Jumping from barrier six, the mare was ridden in ideal form by jockey Hugh Bowman along the 2,040m sprint.

"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", he said of Waller.

".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, who has now won 26 of her 32 career starts, also matched the Australasian record of 15 Group 1 wins set by former sprinting star Black Caviar.

"You never know what is going to happen on a race track and it was great to see her moving forward in that normal style, but gee, Humidor gave us a hell of a fight. They have run second to a very good horse".
