Winx bows out a victor

Winx wins her 33rd consecutive race. More

WINX'S emotional farewell in Saturday's $4 million Queen Elizabeth has been cast into doubt over a shock report the mighty mare may yet extend her career beyond The Championships at Royal Randwick.

She leaves racing rated one of the greatest horses of the turf and 40,000 fans packed Randwick to see her for the last time.

When it came to the race itself Winx, ridden by long-term jockey Hugh Bowman, came out of box nine beginning from a wide berth and was still four horses off the fence turning for home.

"And I didn't think this was more than just a bit of talk in her final week before her final race, but someone very closely connected to the horse has said to me that they reckon she will race at Ascot". "Everyone watching around the world", he said. America, Europe, Africa, all over Australia.

"She's captured the hearts of a lot of people around the globe".

Earlier this week, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said Winx epitomised the popular Australian slogan - "a fair go". I'm so proud of her.

Mr Morrison ran and high-fived the crowd following the victory, stopping to talk to a young boy dressed in replica Winx silks.

The champion mare then claimed her fourth win in the Group 1 $1m George Ryder Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill on March 23 as her final lead up run into today's Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

"The little boy up there Lucas, oh man, there were tears running down his face", he said. Live streaming and wagering is available on all major US-based ADW platforms.

"I can't describe her in words but thank you for appreciating her for what she is", he told 7 Racing. It's great for our sport.

It was Winx's third straight victory in the 2,000 meter Group One race and came on the back of four straight victories in the Cox Plate - Australia's richest weight-for-age race.

Champion Australian racehorse Winx has finished her career in fairytale fashion.

Japanese-bred Kluger, a G2 victor in Japan for Carrot Farm who had not won a race since 2016, finished second, beaten 1 1/2 lengths, with Godolphin's veteran G1-winning Hartnell a distant third in the field of nine older runners going 2,000 meters (1 1/4 miles) on good turf in front of a packed house of 43,833 at Randwick racecourse.
