Winx Arrives in Melbourne

Friday, 29th September 2017

Winx has arrived in Melbourne to prepare for her next scheduled spring appearance in the Gr1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) at Flemington on 7 October. The superstar mare will use the Turnbull as her final preparatory run for the $3 million Gr1 WS Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley on 28 October in which she will launch her historic bid to join the legendary Kingston Town as the only horse to win three editions of the great race. "Winx has arrived safely in Melbourne and will have a quiet few days to settle back into familiar surroundings," trainer Chris Waller said in a statement. "I have been very happy with her work over the past week, which included a gallop on Saturday and again on Tuesday morning prior to leaving the Rosehill stable." He added: "I am extremely pleased with where her fitness levels are at and she will have a gallop next week to finalise her preparation before the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes on Saturday 7th October."
