Winx Wins Gr3 Sunshine Coast Guineas
At the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Darley shuttler & Gr1 Dubai World Cup winner Street Cry (Machiavellian-Helen Street, by Troy) added a Group success when 3YO filly Winx (Street Cry-Vegas Showgirl, by Al Akbar) stormed home from last to score by 1.8-lengths for trainer Chris Waller in the $125,000 Gr3 Sunshine Coast Guineas (1600m) for 3YOs, over 3YO colts Ulmann (Sebring-Darsini, by Danehill) & Worthy Cause (Choisir-Tahnee Tango, by Grand Lodge). This was a stunning performance by Winx who took her record to 5 wins (including the Gr2 Phar Lap Stakes & Gr2 Furious Stakes) and 3 placings (including the Gr1 Australian Oaks & Gr1 Flight Stakes) from 11 starts for $723,925 earnings. Winx, from the dual stakes-winning New Zealand mare Vegas Showgirl, was a $230,000 purchase by Magic Bloodstock at the 2013 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale from the draft of Coolmore Stud. Winx will have her next start in the Gr1 Queensland Oaks (2200m) on 30 May.
