Winx to Start at Shortest Price of Career

Thursday, 17th August 2017

Such is Winx's towering reputation that the champion mare invariably starts at prohibitively short prices whenever she steps out at the races. That trend will continue when she opens her spring campaign in the Gr2 Warwick Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on Saturday. Winx is currently the shortest price of her career to win the $200,000 feature after TAB firmed her into $1.08 following the announcement of the final field. The superstar's previous record was $1.09 when she won the Gr1 George Main Stakes last September. "If Winx was going to show any vulnerability, you'd think it would be first up, but she just has no weakness," TAB's Gerard Middleton said. "This is by far her shortest quote of her fresh runs, but we expect to lay plenty of big bets as she's just that popular no matter the price."
