Breyer Winx, Champion Australian Racehorse
Over the course of 5 years, the Australian mare Winx has rewritten horse racing history. The 2011 Thoroughbred (Street Cry x Vegas Showgirl) mare tied the legendary Phar Laps win record with an incredible 37 career wins.
Owned by Magic Bloodstock, Richard Treweeke & Debbie Kepitis and trained by Chris Waller, her streak of consecutive wins began on 16 May 2015. Jockey Hugh Bowman, Winx's regular rider, piloted her in every race since 2015's Epsom Handicap and to 32 of her wins.
In April 2019, Winx entered the starting gates at the Queen Elizabeth Stakes for her final race before retiring. True to form, Winx pulled off her 33rd consecutive win, finishing a length and a half ahead of the second place finisher.
Winx retired a true champion, complete with a place in Australia's Racing Hall of Fame, a world record of 25 Group One wins and as the highest earning Thoroughbred with over $26.4 million AUD ($19.7 million USD) in winnings!
