Winx Set For 2019

Unlikely she will travel outside Australia

Australian wonder mare Winx is set to race on in 2019.

Trainer Chris Waller released a statement that revealed an agreement had been reached between connections that the seven-year-old would be prepared for one more racing campaign following a recent discussion.

Winx – brilliant mare

“She has nothing left to prove to us or her many followers and we are under no illusion that she is getting a little older, however, she is in excellent condition both physically and mentally and had she not pleased us in any area of her wellbeing or mental state she would have been retired immediately,” Waller said.

“This is not to say that it may not happen before her first run of the preparation, after her first run or at any stage where we are not happy with any aspect of her training or physical state.

“We will not commit to any races as yet but it would be logical to follow the path we have previously, commencing in the Apollo Stakes at Royal Randwick in February and if she did manage to get through a four-race preparation it would most likely culminate in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Royal Randwick.

Chris Waller – race by race assessment

“I must stress to everyone that it shouldn’t be assumed she will be there, it will be a race-by-race assessment as it has always been, especially over the past two seasons when deciding whether to go towards a third Cox Plate, a second Queen Elizabeth or even a fourth Cox Plate as it was in her last start.

“Each race is important for its own reason and we fully appreciate all of the support that she has had throughout her career.”

Waller said it was unlikely Winx would travel outside Australia.

“There will be many questions from different sectors relating to racing in other jurisdictions, which, in itself, could include numerous options,” he added.

“However, we have and will continue to keep things simple with Winx and I believe that has been a big part of her longevity as well as something we are very proud of.”

    What are they trying to prove? Has she not done enough for them? Poor mare.

  2. It is always interesting watching people (as opposed to horses). When a good colt gets whisked off to stud prematurely his connections are labelled “greedy”. When a race mare runs on past 7 her owners are irresponsible.


    Hmmm….to equally thought provoking comments

    Enable will smash her every day of the week and twice on Sunday
