She smashed legendary sprinter Black Caviar's Australian win record last August when making it 26 in a row, and surpassed retired northern hemisphere jumper Hurricane Fly's then-record 22 Group 1 victories at the Chipping Norton Stakes last month.
Dubbed the "Usain Bolt of horse racing" by some, Winx has earned its owners more than $16 million in recent years as well winning worldwide recognition through awards such as the 2018 Longines Horse of the Year alongside Cracksman.
She was hot favourite and with long-time jockey Hugh Bowman in the saddle there was only ever going to be one victor, cementing her place in horse racing history alongside fellow Australian greats Phar Lap and Black Caviar.
Straight after finishing Bowman was left in disbelief at the luck he had for being the man who was on the saddle throughout Winx's career.
"We'll keep her around the stable for probably four or five days so everybody can just spend a bit of time with Winx for who she is, and that's just basically a pet", he said, before later adding. "(Winx) has captured the hearts of people all around the world". "She touches a lot of souls in very many ways". "There's mixed emotions and I'm so proud to be part of it".
"The fact is she's getting older, she will be a mum, and we have more respect for that than just taking her over to please a small amount of people".
"Personally I put so much into each race, from the start of her preparation to her first trial, to her first up run there is always a sigh of relief to see her hit the front at the 100m mark and it is no different today".
The result also marked a milestone for Waller, who recorded his 100th Group One win as a trainer. "To have had a horse like her come into my life".
"I hadn't thought about winning a race like today ever in my lifetime", he said. "Because I tell you there are times I haven't wanted to".
"The public realize the unbelievable history they have witnessed today. But thanks for appreciating her for what she is", Waller said.
But as the horses strolled around the final bend it was clear there was going to be no other ending than Winx saluting.
