Winx wins Cox Plate for third straight year

Winx will be back at Moonee Valley on Saturday to try and win her third Cox Plate

Winx joins Kingston Town as the only three-time victor of the Cox Plate.

Registering her third success in the weight-for-age championship of her home country, Winx made it Gr1 win number 15 and extended her unbeaten sequence to 22.

It took a track record of 2:02.94 from Winx, beating her own mark from 2015 by 0.04, to hold out Humidor, highlighting just how impressive the pair's performances were.

"She's in fantastic form", he said.

Australian supermare Winx has done it again.

Humidor, fifth in the BMW Caulfield Cup (G1) last week, will now head for the two-mile Emirates Melbourne Cup (G1) November 7. "It's a great thing for racing". Who is the other horse?

Waller may not have to worry about that for another few months, as Winx has just a 40% chance of lining up in the G1 Emirates S. on November 11.

"We've all been prepared for the day she gets beaten", Waller said. "It doesn't matter to her and us whether the [Emirates] is worth a thousand dollars or a million, we'll do what's best for her as we always do".

OnePlus 5T tipped to arrive after November 20
This once again confirms the fact that the smartphone will be featuring an extended display with 18:9 aspect ratio. It will be powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor that powers the OnePlus 5 too.

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

Bowman had nothing but praise for the great mare.

"I was born the year Kingston Town won his first Cox Plate and to think that she's emulated the great, it's incredible". But we are in the presence of greatness.

"I've had an unbelievable career", Bowman added.

The six-year-old was fractious in the starting stalls, but jumped out cleanly and travelled with her usual exuberance in the hands of Hugh Bowman.

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

"I'm lost for words", he said. "To run a champion so close is a huge achievement". Winx has given her backers more heart palpitations this season, however.

Racing Victoria chief steward Terry Bailey reported Oliver is set to contest the penalty, which is déjà vu from 12 months ago when Oliver received an identical sanction for reckless riding in the Blue Sapphire Stakes aboard Flying Artie - a suspension that cost him the Cox Plate ride on Vadamos. "But this mare, she's a champ, an absolute champ". Her prize money is a tick over $15.6 million, an Australian record.
