Winx Leaves Trail Almost 200 Horses Long With 17 Consecutive Wins
Dating back to May of 2015, which makes this an anniversary article of sorts, 186 thoroughbred racehorses on Australian tracks have crossed the line behind Winx. She is currently spelling after winning 17 consecutive races.
Her remarkable streak began on 16 May 2015, when she won the SC Guineas, a Group 3 race held at Sunshine Coast.
From that point forward, 16 races to be precise, all of Win’s victories have been Group 2 and Group 1. Twelve of her wins were Group 1 quality.
When she won the Group 1 Caulfield Stakes in October of 2016, only two others were brave enough to venture onto the turf with her.
Black Heart Bart was one and He Or She was the other.
Bart is certainly no slouch and he has won at the Group 1 level as recently as late February, when he took the Futurity Stakes at Caulfield. Just a week prior, somewhat rare for modern thoroughbreds in terms of workload, he took out the CF Orr Stakes.
He Or She has not been as successful, but he probably provided a nice return on his owners’ investment by taking the turf with a guarantee of finishing no worse than third in the Caulfield Stakes.
