Emotional Bowman Revels In Winx Success

  • Hugh Bowman riding Winx galloping during Breakfast with the Best at Moonee Valley racecourse on Tuesday

Punters are hoping champion mare Winx can make history on Saturday and claim her fourth straight Cox Plate victory.

The Chris Waller-trained horse beat Benbatl, with Humidor - who almost caused an upset over Winx in last year's Cox Plate - finishing back in third.

But, when asked how she pulled up, Chris Waller tells Alan Jones his horse is doing just fine.

By the champion's side nearly everyday, Odemislioglu said she has nothing to prove today and that all he hoped for was a safe finish to the race.

Therefore it was not unreasonable to wonder about the quality of competition Winx had faced in her Cox Plate hat-trick.

"We will all sit down and talk about her future in a few weeks, " Waller said.

"I can not believe it".


"To do this 28 times in a row shows she is superior to what she is racing against in this era".

This year she won the signature race at her third campaign start and her Cox Plate win was the fourth race of her spring campaign, a management plan that has extended her racing life and one she appreciates.

"We're just making sure she's still as good as the year before, or even six months".

"But look, I just tried to do things to keep my mind occupied and I was great coming riding last night".

Winx is washed down by stablehands at Moonee Valley after a workout.

"If Winx was an entire then they are so valuable from a stud perspective they wouldn't still be a racehorse, they would be at stud, " Bowman said. "Obviously, the day will come eventually when we have to consider retirement and when she is going to have babies".

"That is why we are so lucky with Winx because her owners bought her to race and because she is in the form that she is and she is happy to race, they (owners) are happy to continue to do so".
