'Super' Winx hailed again
Chris Waller says Winx has pulled up 'super' from her first-up victory at Randwick and all the signs suggest she is better than she has ever been.
The seven-year-old super mare won the race now named after her, the Group 1 Winx Stakes, and Waller was delighted to announce on Sunday morning that she has come through the race, her 26th consecutive win, unscathed.
"Super," Waller said when asked how she is. "She's pulled up really well. It's as good as I've ever seen her pull up. She looks great and her body language is as good as it's ever been so there are plenty of positive signs to say that she's better than she's ever been.
"The main thing is to get her through this run and she'll most likely go to the George Main Stakes in four weeks. We like to space her races and take one race at a time and I think that is bringing longevity.
"One of the special things yesterday, I got a call from Peter Moody last night. We'll never take away Black Caviar's record of being unbeaten."
Winx is now 1/4 to win another Cox Plate in October with Humidor at 25/1 and Grunt priced at 999/1.
Meanwhile, Waller also said D'argento and Unforgotten pleased him with their runs in the same race, D'argento finishing third and Unforgotten sixth.
"Unforgotten was really good late and D'argento had no luck racing three wide into a stiff breeze and it's onwards and upwards for him," Waller added.
"We're thinking along the lines of 2000m races and hopefully the Caulfield Cup for Unforgotten but I just want to see her run over a mile second-up before making that decision."
