Cool Bowman Says It's Up To Winx
Hugh Bowman, the man entrusted with partnering Winx when she resumes in tomorrow's Gr2 Apollo Stakes (1400m) at Randwick, says he doesn't feel any pressure despite the enormous burden of expectation that comes with riding Australia's best racehorse. "I don't see it as pressure," the champion jockey said. "There is obviously a high level of responsibility to do the right thing by the horse...That's how I cope with it. There is a lot of expectation, but ultimately it's up to her to perform." He added: "All I can do is to make sure she's in a position to do that. I'm looking forward to Saturday...hopefully we get to see Winx at her best."
