Winx will trial before the end of the season as trainer Chris Waller attempts to win an unprecedented fourth Gr.1 Cox Plate (2040m) with the wonder mare.
“She will run in a trial either at Warwick Farm on July 20 or Rosehill on the 23rd,” Waller said. “Hugh Bowman came and rode her during the week. He pulled up well. She pulled up better.”
Waller said the first target was the race upgraded and renamed in her honour on August 18, which she has won for the past two years. Formerly the Gr. 2 Warwick Stakes (1400m), it is now the Gr. 1 Winx Stakes.
