The Winx phenomenon continues.
Champion mare Winx has pulled off an astonishing 28th consecutive victory with a narrow triumph in the group 1 Turnbull Stakes at Flemington.
In her 21st group 1 victory, Winx beat home Youngstar, with Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle, by one length after a strong finish down the Flemington straight.
She was second from the back throughout the 2000m race and looked a strong chance of being beaten with as little as 300 metres to run.
But in her customary fashion, Winx finished strongly and, by the finishing post, her latest victory was not in doubt.
All eyes will now turn towards the Cox Plate later this month when Winx aims for a fourth victory in the weight-for-age event.
