Winx wins Cox Plate for third straight year

Winx wins Cox Plate for third straight year

He has two days to lodge an appeal.

LADBROKES COX PLATE-G1, A$3,050,000 (US$2,305,448/£1,756,093/€1,985,828), MVRC, 10-28, 3yo/up, Open Weight For Age, 2040mT, 2:02.94, Gd. Instead, he rode Exospheric into eighth place.

The serious charge of improper riding related to Oliver's action coming out of the straight the first time where he made heavy contact with Royal Symphony for a period of 100m. Royal Symphony, Gailo Chop, Happy Clapper, Seaburge, and Hardham completed the field.

Asked about the incident as he left the course, Oliver said: "No comment".

Meanwhile, Humidor's rider Blake Shinn said Darren Weir's Group I victor turned in a scintillating Melbourne Cup trial and admitted for a fleeting moment he thought he had Winx's measure. "She's unbeaten for nearly three years now, and I'd be lying if I said I didn't go to bed at night thinking of her getting beaten".

The win takes the Chris Waller-trained mare to first on the all-time leading prizemoney earners for Australian racehorses, eclipsing the $15 million mark, as well as her 15th Group 1 victory.




Thousand Guineas victor Aloisia turned in an astonishing performance to win the Vase by three-and-a-half lengths, with the TAB immediately firming him into $1.70 Oaks favourite.

The three-time Melbourne Cup victor was due to partner last year's hero in the race that stops the nation, but he will serve 20 meetings on the sidelines for a bumping duel on Happy Clapper with Dean Yendall's Royal Symphony. He firmed from $61 into $34 for the Cup.

Winx, trained in Sydney by expatriate New Zealander Chris Waller, took her earnings to A$15.58 million (US$11.97 million), surpassing triple Melbourne Cup victor Makybe Diva's previous Australasian record of A$14.5 million. And you know trying to compare one horse to another, they are always different animals at the end of the day, be but we are in the presence of greatness as you said. There were obviously moments of concern down the straight, but she's Winx and she finds a way to win like all champions do. "It wasn't an ideal run going to the Melbourne Cup so when he pulled up so well after that race, we thought let's give him a chance in the Cox Plate".

The winning ride went to Kerrin McEvoy.

The second-placed horse Humidor who put in a very fearless effort is part-owned by former All Black Mark Carter, and his brother Mark and sister Rachel. "He loves Moonee Valley, the speed was on", Weir said.
