WINX Retires

Postby Schlocky » Sun Apr 14, 2019 1:54 am

who?

Yeah I know she only raced in Australia and the mighty Frankel would have placked her but she did win £14m.
All up she had 43 starts for 37 wins, 3 seconds and 3 unplaced.
She retired after 33 consecutive wins and 25 Group one victories.
Regarded by many as the greatest thoroughbred in Australia, superior to Phar Lap, Tulloch, Kingston Town and co despite being ranked 13th in Australasian Timeform Ratings. :lol: :hmmm:
