Champion Australia mare Winx wins final race for 33 in a row

Hugh Bowman riding Winx celebrates as he returns to scale after winning the Queen Elizabeth Stakes

Australian wonder mare Winx signed off her brilliant career in the best possible fashion when dazzling the crowd in the Longines Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Randwick.

She leaves racing rated one of the greatest horses of the turf and 40,000 fans packed Randwick to see her for the last time.

"And I didn't think this was more than just a bit of talk in her final week before her final race, but someone very closely connected to the horse has said to me that they reckon she will race at Ascot".

"So you prepare for the races to say well, if she is not as good as she was the previous start or the previous year, she will be retired".

Bowman brought Winx out slowly from the traps early on before settling into sixth place, and then made a signature dash to the finish on the 600-metre mark.

Winx joined in as the widest runner and as she so often does, ambled to the front with 200 metres to go.

"Everyone watching around the world ..."

Speaking afterwards Waller said: "It's hard to explain without getting too emotional". America, Europe, Africa, all over Australia. I am just so proud of her, I really am.

Waller said returning to his Rosehill stable will probably give Winx the impression her campaign is not over, but it most certainly is. "Because I tell you there are times I haven't wanted to".

Waller trained three Group 1 winners on Saturday, he also prepared Shraooh to win the Sydney Cup and Verry Ellegant to take out the ATC Australian Oaks.

"I wouldn't say life moves on after Winx.but there's a special bond between the owners, the trainer, the jockey all our key staff and our families that'll never be replaced".

"When she gets to her grand final she knows what it is all about and she is ready to fire", Waller said. Nine of her victories have come over the 2000 meters, including an unprecedented four consecutive scores in Australia's springtime weight-for-age championship, the G1 W S Cox Plate at Moonee Valley in Melbourne.

Sent out a prohibitive favourite at $1.06, Winx had 1-1/2 lengths in hand over Kluger ($51) with Hartnell ($26) another 2-1/2 lengths away in the minor placing.
