Winx Has Won Her 32nd Straight Race

The punters have kept on coming for Winx in Saturday's George Ryder Stakes at Rosehill.

Unbeaten in nearly four years spanning her past 31 starts and 23 Group One victories, Winx started as the $1.06 favourite to claim the weight-for-age George Ryder (1500m) for the fourth-straight year on Saturday.

"Out of this world" is how part-owner Peter Tighe described Winx after her victory in the George Ryder Stakes at Rosehill, and the wonder mare's record is proof she is just that - a once-in-a-lifetime race horse with a record that is unparalleled.

She surpassed retired northern hemisphere jumper Hurricane Fly s then-record 22 Group 1 victories at the Chipping Norton Stakes earlier this month.

It's expected to be Winx's penultimate run of her heralded career, and punters are keen to cash in while they can.

It would be Winx's fourth consecutive victory in the prestigious race, extending her four-year winning streak.

"We've had messages from time to time (to go overseas), but I think she's brought the world closer to Australian racing".

"Obviously I was more assertive with her over the last 300 metres than I would be here early in the mornings but for her it was very comfortable".

"Fortunately for her it should not affect her chances and we will just leave the riding up to Hugh who does a wonderful job and is a big part of the team, as are our staff at home who do a wonderful job of maintaining her and keeping her as a happy horse".

Winx rushed passed Dreamforce and Brutal to take the lead with 200m before comfortably striding out to a three-lengths win.
