'Solid workout' for Winx at Rosehill

The Chris Waller stable reported on Monday morning that champion mare Winx had 'a solid workout this morning with Hugh Bowman in the saddle.'

"I am very happy with her preparation work & Hugh said she feels great ahead of Saturday’s race at Randwick," said Waller.

Winx heads to Randwick on Saturday for the first race start of her 2018 spring campaign in the race renamed after her, the Group 1 WFA Winx Stakes (1400m). This is also the firs running of the Winx Stakes, formerly the Warwick Stakes, after being elevated to Group 1 status.

Waller said after the mare trialed strongly at Rosehill last Tuesday that he wanted her to be ready to win first up over the 1400m and in the race named in her honour.
