Wonder mare Winx makes it 16 in a row

Champion mare Winx has made it 16 wins in a row, ploughing through a heavy track at Rosehill for an easy victory in the Group One George Ryder Stakes (1500m).

Jockey Hugh Bowman ran Winx wide for much of the race, finally cruising to the lead at the 300m mark before powering home to win by at least six lengths over Le Romain with Chautauqua third.

"She's just so special. I'm at a loss to explain it," Bowman said.
