Winx streaks away to win 21st straight race

The debut of Winx at Flemington is expected to deliver a crown of 30,000 at a day normally reserved for punting purists

Making her Flemington debut, Winx smashed her rivals in the A$500,000 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) in front of a huge adoring crowd. "I have said it all week", Bowman said.

The win was dominant on the line, with Bowman hardly having to feel for her, coming away to win easily by six and a half lengths from Ventura Storm and Humidor in third. "She was back to herself today, she was very unenthusiastic last start, for some reason or other, maybe she just had a bit of a day where she didn't want to do it, but she still did it in style".

Bowman pushed the mare into the race before the turn and she strolled up to her rivals before sprinting clear to win easing up.

Ventura Storm finished second with Humidor filling out the placings.

There was no signs of the jitters from recent races when Bowman needed to roust Winx along early on, as the 1-5 favourite settled in fifth and travelled powerfully well off a pace set by Magicool. It took her total winning margins in four group 1 wins in Melbourne to more than 21 lengths.

"She is a very special athlete and to be part of it is a great honor". "I just think he's going to be an outstanding stayer here in Australia for a couple of years". It carries a lot of expectation and carries a lot of responsibility.

All roads lead to the Cox Plate on October 28 for the world's best turf horse when she will attempt to equal Kingston Town's record of three victories at Moonee Valley.

While numerous 20,000-plus crowd - nearly double the amount from previous year - experienced travel problems getting to the track after issues with the trains, Winx enjoyed a smooth passage throughout the 1m2f contest. "Whatever you ask her to do she does", said Winx's trainer, Sydney-based expatriate New Zealander Chris Waller.

"She makes us all look good in what she does", Waller said. There's no training manual for a horse like Winx, we've managed to get it right but she makes us get it right, ' Waller said.
