Winx Returns For Autumn Prep

Monday, 12th December 2016

Champion mare Winx (Street Cry-Vegas Showgirl, by Al Akbar) returned to trainer Chris Waller's Sydney stable on Friday, reports AAP. The 5YO was last seen registering her 10th Gr1 victory when scoring a stunning and record-breaking 8 length win in the Cox Plate in October. "She won't be doing anything for another month," Waller said. "She'll be ready to go mid-February. She looks fantastic." Waller has mapped out a four-start autumn campaign for Winx which will see her kick off with the Gr2 Apollo Stakes (1400m) at Royal Randwick on 11 February. She is then expected to head to the Gr1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on 25 February, followed by the Gr1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill on the 18 March, before ending her campaign in the showpiece event of The Championships - the $4 million Gr1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) at Randwick on 8 April.
