Chris Waller will once again team up with Hugh Bowman when Winx races for a third Cox Plate success

The Cox Plate win gave Winx her 15th Group 1 win, equaling the famous sprinter Black Caviar on Australia's all-time list.

"I was born the year that Kingston Town (the other three-time victor of the Cox Plate) won his first Cox Plate and to think that she has emulated the great ... trying to compare one horse to another, they are always different animals at the end of the day, but we are in the presence of greatness". She took her earnings past $15.5 million Australian (about $11.9 million), which is more than three-time Melbourne Cup victor Makybe Diva's Australian prize-money record of $14.5 million Australian.

"I am lost for words".

I was born the year that Kingston Town won his first Cox Plate and to think that she has emulated the great, you know, and. She'll be recognised as one of the greatest horses to grace the Australian turf.

"You don't have any emotion watching her".

Winx, trained in Sydney by expatriate New Zealander Chris Waller, took her earnings to 15,577,000 Australian dollars ($11.96 million), surpassing triple Melbourne Cup victor Makybe Diva's previous Australasian record of A$14.5 million ($11.14 million).

"You've got the elite horses, the elite jockeys but it's one of those days where everything has fallen into place".

The six-year-old was fractious in the starting stalls, but jumped out cleanly and travelled with her usual exuberance in the hands of Hugh Bowman. We will just look at her and see how she has recovered.

The Kardashians Re-Sign With E! for $150 Million
We are incredibly proud of our partnership with the Kardashians and they remain an important part of the E! family . Both Kylie and Khloe are said to be expecting but are keeping fans in the dark. "We created them", Khloe responded.

"It's important to note Chris has had her at peak condition both times she's raced here and (today) will be the third".

He will aim for another with Humidor who ran fifth in last week's Caulfield Cup and backed up because the trainer was unhappy with how he was ridden.

Bowman told www.racing.com: "It's hard to explain really".

The mare started the race as the shortest Cox Plate favourite since Phar Lap in 1931.

"The beauty of Winx is she makes our job easier", he said earlier this week.

Lucky Hussler is trained at Weir's Warrnambool base and the leading trainer was expecting a good showing at his fourth run of the campaign.

"She's an animal that we love and horses come first in this sport".
