Champion racehorse Winx wins again in a record for Australian Group One victories

Race horse with jockey.Champion mare Winx has won her 23rd consecutive race in her Autumn comeback with a comfortable win in the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes.

It was Winx’s 16th Group One win, eclipsing the previous Australian record held by Black Caviar.

Jockey Hugh Bowman settled Winx in second-last place, before looping the field and romping to a seven-length victory.

“She had a lovely run sort of closer to the rear of the field,” Bowman said.

Bowman rode Winx after returning for a seven-meet suspension he incurred from a ride on Tsawlu on Australia Day.

He has now ridden the mare 23 times for 22 wins.
