'Incredible' Winx beats Black Caviar's record with 26th straight win

The mighty mare will saddle up for a crack at her 26th consecutive win when she goes to the barriers for the Group 1, $500,000 Winx Stakes (1400m), which runs at 2.30pm AEST.

Winx's main Spring Carnival goal is to win a fourth Group 1 $5m Ladbrokes Cox Plate (2040m) at The Valley on October 27 after equalling the legendary Kingston Town's record of three straight Cox Plate wins with her victory in the 2017 weight for age championship.

Black Caviar was never beaten whereas Winx, trained by Chris Waller, began her brilliant run on the Sunshine Coast at her 11th start after winning three of her first 10 races.

Four months after winning the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes at the same racecourse, the bay mare's triumphant return to the track left Waller choking back tears.

Winx has raced into history, and fans across the country are in awe.

"(I'm) just looking for signs of her losing her dominance", Waller said on Saturday, the same day Black Caviar turned 12. "What she does to horses is simply break their hearts".

Connections were nearly lost for words at what was Winx's first start since her resounding win in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes in mid-April. It's about that wonderful animal behind us.

For a fleeting moment, Winx's record-setting attempt appeared in doubt at Randwick, with Godolphin's Kementari forcing her wide as she rounded into the straight.

After putting the race to bed in a matter of strides, Bowman eased Winx down late to pose for the photo in front of a rapturous Randwick crowd.

"She's just incredible", said Bowman.

"I love being on her and I'm privileged to be on her and I get all the accolades but I'm sure she could do it without me".
