Winx Racing's Equivalent Of Bitcoin
While hindsight’s 20:20 when it comes to Winx’s freakish winning trot, one could say the same thing about the early adopters in Bitcoin who made a motza as their initial investment went stratospheric. On the eve of Winx’s Chelmsford Stakes start at Royal Randwick, where she’ll attempt to go 19 wins straight, it's tempting to play what if, as in what if you’d put $100 on her in the Sunshine Coast Guineas, and just kept rolling it over? Well, right now, you’d have somewhere around $1.3 million to put towards your retirement. This is the sequence of the destruction Winx has wrought (watch below): Gr3 Sunshine Coast Guineas, Gr1 Queensland Oaks, Gr2 Theo Marks, Gr1 Epsom, Gr1 Cox Plate, Gr2 Apollo, Gr1 Chipping Norton, Gr1 George Ryder, Gr1 Doncaster, Gr2 Warwick, Gr1 George Main, Gr1 Caulfield Classic, Gr1 Cox Plate, Gr2 Apollo, Gr1 Chipping Norton, Gr1 George Ryder, Gr1 Queen Elizabeth, Gr2 Warwick. Assuming she jumps better tomorrow than her aberration two weeks ago then Winx’s $1.10 Chelmsford quote looks like another gimme.
