Winx Heads Cox Plate Entries

Wednesday, 9th August 2017

Superstar mare Winx heads the list of 141 horses entered for the 2017 Gr1 WS Cox Plate (2040m) at Tuesday's noon closing time, reports racing.com. Winx, who was inducted into the Australian Racing Hall of Fame in May this year, is preparing for an historic spring campaign in which she will attempt to join the legendary Kingston Town as the only horse to win three Cox Plates. Among those horses nominated for the $3 million weight-for-age feature at Moonee Valley on 28 October are 15 international entries, including Japanese star Neorealism, English Derby runner-up Cliffs Of Moher, and Highland Reel, who was third behind Winx in the 2015 edition of the race.
