Mighty Winx wins record fourth Cox Plate

Hugh Bowman riding Winx galloping during Breakfast with the Best at Moonee Valley racecourse on Tuesday

Humidor, the third placegetter in Saturday's Cox Plate, has emerged from the race with an injury and will not race again this spring.

Waller said planning and preparation for a fourth Cox Plate with Winx began virtually the day after she completed her three-peat at the Valley past year.

THE queen of the turf has a fourth Cox Plate jewel in her crown. It is also her 22nd consecutive Group 1 win, a world record.

Winx is just one of seven horses to win the $5 million feature aged seven or older, and the oldest since Fields Of Omagh claimed glory in 2006.

Jockey Hugh Bowman pulled the trigger with 600m to go and Winx powered home to win by almost two lengths from the Godolphin raider Benbatl.

Trainer Chris Waller's trademark emotion - reserved only for Winx - spilled over post-race, while Bowman was welcomed by his two daughters, Bambi and Paige, post-race in their first trip to the track together.
