Winx $1.10 to make it 20 straight - Hartnell (GB) $1.80 for Makybe Diva Stakes
Winx has opened at $1.10 with TAB.com.au to win Saturday’s $500,000, Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on Saturday and secure her 20th victory in a row.
The champion mare, who will be looking for her 13th Group 1 win, has Happy Clapper and Le Romain her closest rivals at $15.
“Despite the fact she has given her legion of fans and punters heart perturbations in her two wins this campaign, the mighty mare Winx is all the rage to record her 20th straight victory on Saturday and win back to back editions of the Colgate Optic White Stakes,” TAB’s Nick Quinn said.
