Labelled the best thing to ever happen to Australian horseracing, super mare Winx has created history again by becoming the first horse to win three consecutive AUD$500,000 Colgate Optic White Gr1 George Main Stakes, extending her winning streak to 27.
In front of more than 13000 racegoers at Royal Randwick , the champion mare showed incredible acceleration, angling around her field after turning for home last, and took off in the final 150m to win by five lengths.
The seven-year-old bay took her career earnings to almost AUD$20 million with the win and set another stunning list of records. Her stakes tally is the equivalent of approximately R210 million!
It was her eighth consecutive Group 1 race win — joining Black Caviar.
It was her 20th total Group 1 win — the first horse to ever reach the milestone.
