She was nearly run down by Humidor a year ago and had a close call in her last race, the Turnbull Stakes, when star jockey Hugh Bowman nearly left his run too late.

"Going to the other side of the world is one thing, coming back and doing well as well as she is expected to is very hard". We made the decision to let her continue her racing days in Australia and we are so very happy with that decision.

Winx runs unbelievable times (she set the Cox Plate race record and then broke it a couple of years later herself).

Waller has said all week that "only bad luck or an absolute champion" can prevent Winx from claiming a fourth victory in the race.

"The build-up to a fourth Cox Plate was pretty intense", he said.

"Going past the straight the first time I was a little concerned she might get caught three wide but it all just unfolded very well", Waller said.

While she has won the last three editions of the race, it hasn't always been easy.

Winx's has now won over $22.8 million in prizemoney courtesy of her fourth straight Cox Plate win which took her winning stretch to twenty-nine and her Group 1 winning trophies to twenty-two.

"It's the time to enjoy a great horse that did smash Benbatl up and I wanted to see that", Chapman said.

"We're just making sure she's still as good as the year before, or even six months".

"I'd say with time and treatment he'll be right and be able to come back, we'll just have to see". We'll race forward but don't need to lead.

Winx continued her dominance at Moonee Valley on Saturday.

She is a champion, still gracing the turf at an age when many comparable racemares have had one or two foals and are long consigned to the breeding barn.

"They came, we conquered, bring on anything you want to bring here, she is wonderful".
