Australian race horse Winx retires after record 33rd straight win

Could Hugh Bowman and Winx be headed to Royal Ascot AAP Horses Report claims Winx might race at Royal Ascot

She smashed legendary sprinter Black Caviar's Australian win record last August when making it 26 in a row, and surpassed retired northern hemisphere jumper Hurricane Fly's then-record 22 Group 1 victories at the Chipping Norton Stakes last month. "But in terms of modern-day racing, what she's done, what the team's done to get behind her, most importantly the Winx fans, it has really propelled her right up there as one of the best".

Her regular jockey Hugh Bowman sustained a split lip when Winx raised her head as he attempted to kiss her after dismounting but nothing was going to ruin his day. Some 27 of her 36 career tallies have come at the metropolitan tracks, including 19 at Royal Randwick, which will be bursting at the seams Saturday afternoon when the Queen Elizabeth field is loaded just after 4 p.m. local time.

Earlier this week, however, Waller said he didn't think Winx had anything left to prove and he wasn't interested in taking her overseas.

As well as finishes her career with 33 consecutive wins, Winx bows out with 25 Group One triumphs.

Straight after finishing Bowman was left in disbelief at the luck he had for being the man who was on the saddle throughout Winx's career. "Very mixed (emotions), so proud to be a part of it", Bowman said. "(Winx) has captured the hearts of people all around the world".

Experts predict each of her foals could fetch more than a million dollars. "She is the most incredible, supreme athlete I think I've ever seen".

"This has just been complete luck that a horse like this has come into my life".

"It sure has. I hadn't thought about winning a race like today ever in my lifetime".

Waller has put Winx's imminent retirement to the back of his mind and has been concentrating on preparing his stable super star for her grand final appearance in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

"Whether they are here at Randwick today, but all around Australia, New Zealand and the world".

"I can't describe her in words but thank you for appreciating her for what she is", he told 7 Racing.

"The awesome horse Winx has continued to deliver".
