Winx wins her 33rd consecutive race. More

Japanese-bred Kluger, a G2 victor in Japan for Carrot Farm who had not won a race since 2016, finished second, beaten 1 1/2 lengths, with Godolphin's veteran G1-winning Hartnell a distant third in the field of nine older runners going 2,000 meters (1 1/4 miles) on good turf in front of a packed house of 43,833 at Randwick racecourse.

Some 27 of her 36 career tallies have come at the metropolitan tracks, including 19 at Royal Randwick, which will be bursting at the seams Saturday afternoon when the Queen Elizabeth field is loaded just after 4 p.m. local time.

"It's over", Bowman said.

Bowman brought Winx out slowly from the traps early on before settling into sixth place, and then made a signature dash to the finish on the 600-metre mark.

Winx was ridden by Hugh Bowman and trained by Chris Waller. "It's wonderful how many people come up to me and say 'I hope you beat her, ' but it's not the Australian way".

"Everyone watching around the world ..."

It was all about Winx at Randwick. America, Europe, Africa, all over Australia.

"It sure has. I hadn't thought about winning a race like today ever in my lifetime. And it is such a special moment to share it with not only my attractive wife and my handsome children, but the lovely people who have been right behind Winx", he said.

"This horse has captured the hearts of a lot of people around the globe. She is the most fantastic, supreme athlete I think I've ever seen".

"The public realize the awesome history they have witnessed today". Twenty-five of those wins for the 7-year-old daughter of Street Cry out of Vegas Showgirl, by Al Akbar, came in Group 1 competition in her native Australia.

"I can't describe her (Winx) in words".

Bowman said during the week she's "bigger and stronger and more enthusiastic than she's ever been", while Waller has been waiting for the past 18 months for the mare to show signs of wanting to stop racing. "But thanks for appreciating her for what she is".

Such is her legend that Winx has become more than just a horse in Australia.
