Reminder to Winx fans not named Nancy (who reminded me). 

Winx will  be shooting for her 26th straight victory attempting to surpass the mighty & undefeated Black Caviar's streak of 25 straight...and attempting to notch her 19th Group One win.  Saturday, Down Under, at Royal Randwick.

Waller & Bowman have reported she's "picture perfect".

Go Winx!

I can't even pretend to stay awake. 1 AM East Coast. Will wake up hopefully around then and either catch the race or replay #GoWinx!

Those mares! Winx just has the ultimate suspense ending and Z did, also. Holding my breath until they “kicked for home”

Way, way past my bedtime.  :)  But I'm up before dawn to walk.

I don't think the best strategy for Kementari  was to run side by side with Winx.  She likes to toy with those types before dispatching them.  She idled for a bit right next to him & then took off after the leaders.  Her racing IQ is off the charts.

Is that what they call "much the best"? Wide rally, and just flew by the field.... I can't help but notice the difference in riding, without the incessant whipping as she came on, through to the wire!
