Winx secures 32nd consecutive win in George Ryder Stakes

Winx racehorse Queen Elizabeth Stakes Randwick

Record-breaking mare Winx has claimed her fourth-straight George Ryder Stakes with another dominant performance on Saturday at Rosehill.

She is the first horse in Australian racing history to win four Cox Plates, four Chipping Norton Stakes, and four George Ryder Stakes.

It is expected Winx's extraordinary career will to come to an end after the Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Royal Randwick next month.

Nothing is easier than punting with hindsight but Godolphin-homebred Kiamichi had Golden Slipper Stakes written all over her going into Saturday's race.

Hugh Bowman and Winx found themselves at the back of the field heading into the final 300 meters, before Bowman made his move round the outside of the pack to finish three-and-a-half lengths clear of Brutal and Dreamforce.

For her trainer Chris Waller, the result brought the usual mixture of relief, excitement and awe.

Her 32 race winning streak has annihilated Black Caviar's previous Australian-record mark of 25 consecutive race wins.

"She's a very special horse".

"When the crowd erupted I could feel the energy increase in her body, it was just so exciting", he said.

"She had them covered pretty early down the straight", part-owner Peter Tighe said.

"Every other jockey I'm telling not to be three-wide, but with her we have to be three-wide to stay out of trouble". So it's her home track, ' Waller said. Her last defeat was in April 2015. Her winning run in Group One races is now extended to 24.
