Winx, Australia’s favourite horse, ends fairytale career winning final race

Australia’s favourite racehorse Winx delivered another dominant performance in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes to win her 33rd successive race and head into retirement with a world record 25 Group One victories.Attracting a huge amount of backing despite prohibitive odds of 50/3 on, a 37th career win from 43 starts for the seven-year-old bay mare never looked in doubt and she stormed across the line a length-and-a-half clear of Kluger.There were tears aplenty as the sell-out crowd of 42,000 at Royal Randwick gave her a standing ovation as she rode around her home racecourse, venue of 20 of her wins, for the final time.It was Winx’s third straight victory in the 2,000 metre Group One race and came on the back of four straight victories in the Cox Plate — Australia’s richest weight-for-age race.
