Winx back in Chris Waller stable

  • Winx returns from her spell 
  • Her first race is likely to be in the Winx Stakes 
  • A fourth consecutive Cox Plate is the end goal
Winx wins the 2018 Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

Chris Waller took to Twitter on Wednesday to announce that the best racehorse in the world Winx is now back in his stables and will begin her preparation for an unprecedented fourth consecutive Ladbrokes Cox Plate. 

Winx hasn’t been seen at the races since winning the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) on April 14, defeating Gailo Chop by 3.8 lengths and equalling Black Caviar’s streak of 25 consecutive victories. 


Just two months later and Winx is back at the stables, ready to embark on a historic Spring campaign. Waller has spoken on her future, saying that although the Cox Plate on Saturday, October 27 is the main goal, the pin could be pulled at any moment if Winx tells him that she has had enough. 

Providing that doesn’t happen, it is expected that Waller will follow a similar campaign to last Spring. The likely start is in the Group 1 Winx Stakes (1400m) on Saturday, August 18. The Winx Stakes was formerly known as the Warwick Stakes and was run at Group 2 level. 

In 2017 she proceeded to run in and win, the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m), Group 1 George Main (1600m), Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) and the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m).

Although her starting and finish races seem somewhat certain, It’s still unclear the exact path Chris Waller will take for her 2018 Spring campaign. 

Waller did speak to Racing.com on Thursday, saying;

"Without locking in an exact schedule, I wouldn't imagine there would be too many surprises. We will be aiming to have her ready to race in mid-August."
