Winx the Magnificent

well That matters not.. she beat them... clean pair of heels. A race record..!!
:thumb :smitten :rose


The thing is many of those horses used to be trained by Darren Weir. 'Weiry' as he was called.

All his horses are now trained by others, and that would be down to the owners decision as to where to place those horses. As Chris Waller is without a doubt the best big stable trainer in the Country, or possibly the world, he would have had his pick.

Guess you missed the news...Darren Weir was taken out of the racing game....( he was second to Waller on stats ) he was found to …well umm he is not to be mentioned.. :OMG .. and, whats more... he made no attempt to defend himself.



But back to WINX.

So magnificent. She was there for business. She took up her usual stance down on the back, stock still, staking it all out again, as HER'S . I've seen her do it so many times... Queen of ALL before her.

Then she moved in to the stalls. Horse and rider were one. Never a doubt. :yahoo


Second place getter, for probably the 3rd time to WINX?. HAPPY CLAPPER has won +8,000,000.. in stakes money, and so if WINX hadn't been around ..??

She is in fine form, running a Race Record. !!
Pundits are saying this is her last campaign, .. as a 7 yr old mare she'll be off to the broodbarns... :mad BULLSHIT.!!

That'd be a crime. As long as she wants to run, they should race her. She is just peaking... a seven year old mare, treasured as she is, and so incredibly well-handled, could race on. As long is she is sound, it should be her choice.


You see,,, horses are quite capable of telling us what they think.
:bgrin :bgrin :bgrin

Chatacqua .. the mighty grey speed machine showed us that last year.

:bgrin The leading sprinter... he decided he didn't want to race any more. Now, he'd always been headstrong.. on and off on and off... a bit of a handful. He's also won more than $8,000,000.... a real champion...


so .. and you have to look this footage up on Youtube.. it is hilarious.... :bgrin :bgrin :bgrin
Poor jockey's, flapping their arms and legs, and going NOWHERE. :rofl :rofl

when the gates opened he just stood there. Moved out a bit .. nah .. not interested. Because he was so good .. they kept trying to get him to run. The stewards allowed and he just said.. up yours.

I think on the 3rd attempt he stood there for a while, and must have thought oh WTF?? and decided to join in.. He came so close,, maybe a NOSE, to winning. :bgrin :bgrin

The last chance they gave him .. it was like... he stood there, looked around, ignoring all those other horses racing off and might as well have crossed one leg over the other and leaned against the wall. Poor jockey... it is hilarious... :bgrin

He is retired.. :bgrin :roll


WINX should continue racing as long as she wants to. :thumb

The magnificent Winx races again on Saturday.

The Chipping Norton Stakes.
WHEN she wins, she will break a number of records. I won't bore you with them, but she is looking absolutely stunning. Perhaps even better than her last win.... She really is JUST IN HER PRIME. !!!

Born to RUN faster and better than any other. :wub :wub :wub

I wish the owners would let HER decide. It seems they've been copping flak on line. Trolls are everywhere....

Having read her biography, now considerably out of date, she has suffered some health issues.. mainly hoof abscesses. And a bit of bone off the knee..?? anyway, most horses suffer a lot more harm than that, just being in the paddock. Horses tend to injure themselves it seems. I know my neighbours (former) had two horses die on them, for no apparent reason. Umm

No.. she is so well-loved and cared-for, she could race on for considerably longer... PROVIDING she is sound, and WANTS to.


Just watch her win on Saturday, and you'll know what I say is true. :rose :smitten


If she doesn't?? she didn't want to. But that is inconcievable.

I'm not sure if i heard correctly but apparently her owners have decided that she'll run 3 more races then that's it for her.

Wonder woman
sad eh?
If she is fit she can race for at least another COX PLATE, but I think the owners have been sledged for still racing her. Ignorant IMHO. If she wants to race, let her race. :yahoo


As a BROODMARE, her value will always be less than her ability. You just cannot know what will throw, and she is so dominant, it seems a shame to retire her prematurely.


That my view anyway.

Wonder woman
So :yahoo :bgrin :bgrin you can't have missed the news, …

She did it easy, really, but boy it was a good race to watch. Never a doubt. :clap

Wonder woman
She broke the race record in the race she has now won 4 times.... four years in a row.

So that tells us .. :wub
she is getting BETTER.

She loves to run
AND WIN. SHE wants to win. She knows where the winning post is. Never ever will we see her like in our lifetimes....

Let her run Debbie, Michael, .. it's what she's bred to do.!

Wonder woman
She's likely to race in 3 weeks .,, unmm :bgrin but Mr Waller is playing his card close to his chest, and says, quite rightly, that the decision for Winx in the future is up to the owners.


Debbie> Michael? as the reps visible on camera, you are having to face some quite difficult questions.....

I think she should race at least one more year. I think she should win her 5TH COX PLATE, IN A ROW... NO SWEAT, or only a little. :bgrin

But only if you give her the chance...……………


As an 8 yr old MARE, tough as TEAK, so, IF HER legs and FEET are good, she could win the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups next year. 2020.

She can do anything, if she is SOUND.

Don't, please , don't send her to the broodbarn if she is fit, and WILLING to race.

Please :stop

Winx races again on Saturday,23rd, likely for the second last time.


Going for 32 wins straight.


I doubt there will ever be such a horse again, in my lifetime. You can bet I'll be watching.

The owners should start training her for the Melbourne Cup. Then she can retire in a blaze of glory!

She is already steeped in glory beyond any other horse in history.

We saw Winx again this morning, and didn't she just look MAGNIFICENT..!! :wub :wub :wub :wub :wub :wub

She had a gallop, all on her own, and ran like the unbeatable beauty she is.

There was a race today, for the top sprinters , and it was dominated by Santa Ana Lane who won comfortably from horses like Trapeze Artist ( off to STUD for him) and Redzel.

The thing is, to all those Winx detractors out there that I've heard are trolling big time on social media, she ran faster on her Gallop past the Stands than Santa Ana Lane put in to win that Race. Fantastic. :rose :smitten

Her last race next Saturday, and the story will continue.

So.. Saturday. :sad :bgrin But ALSO, really happy.

Lots of people have been involved with this horse... WINX.

millions of people



She HAS been a latter day PHAR LAP.
WE LOVE HER. :wub

On Saturday she will run in The Queen Elizabeth Stakes, 2000m, Group 1.


I might put a small bet on her to win, of course. :bgrin
And I won't cash it in...
And honestly, it will be the first, and only bet I have made on WINX, over all the years I have been bedazzled by her.
Don't ever let people tell you horses are stupid animals.

Just watching her is enough for me. All credit to her team...

:rose :rose :rose

SIGH
:wub

She won … her final race today.
Very engaging indeed.
Put the only bet I have ever had on her today to WIN. $10. It won't be cashed. Just thought I ought to, as I have watched her for so long now. :rose

Winx had a worthy adversary in the Japanese horse, Kluger . They were matching strides mid-field, during the middle of the race, and then Bowman took her out wide while Kluger stuck to the rail. Fighting out in the final few hundred metres, you could see her supremacy, and you could see Kluger's jockey looking across at her, as the mighty mare went on to take a clear lead. Like he was feasting his eyes on a sight none of us will see again.

And indeed, unless she is barren, we'll never see her race again. :sad


She had the final word with Bowman, knocking him in the face hard and splitting his lip. He'll never get near her again, I think, and she took the opportunity to let him know she was happy to see the end of him, at least. :bgrin

Fucked him off.! :bgrin :yahoo
A goodbye to you prick.
