Fresh off emulating Kingston Town with a hat-trick of successes in the weight-for-age championship at Moonee Valley, Winx dipped her famous legs into the Altona Beach waters to recuperate. She took her earnings past $15.5 million Australian (about $11.9 million), which is more than three-time Melbourne Cup victor Makybe Diva's Australian prize-money record of $14.5 million Australian.
"She has just made history", jockey Hugh Bowman told Channel Seven.
"She's as good as I've seen", Johnston said.
"I was born the year Kingston Town won his first Cox Plate".
"She will be recognised as one of the greatest horses to grace the Australian turf and to be a part of her career, I can't explain how much that means".
The victory extended Winx's winning streak to 22 in a row, and equaled sprint queen Black Caviar's Australian record of 15 group 1 wins. The planning of Chris Waller was exceptional again and she has proved how great she is and we have grateful that we own her and grateful that she races here in Australia.
"When you're thinking about the horse and the competition she's going to be up against, whether it be two weeks, whether it be in the autumn or whether it be the other side of the world, she'll only take them on if she's at her very best".
"We've just got to make sure that challenge isn't a breaking point".
Waller said whatever future plans he had for Winx, she would only run if he felt she was at her very best.
"I'm not there myself but Jo Taylor and the staff said she's fantastic so that was music to my ears".
"Fortunately we've never gone run one too far and fortunately we've got a horse that's come back and rewarded us each and every preparation".
Trainer Chris Waller is due to fly into Melbourne on Tuesday to make a decision on whether the three-time victor of Australasia's weight-for-age championship will have a spring carnival swansong in the Emirates Stakes at Flemington in a fortnight. But trying to compare one horse to another, they're all different. "We would love to have her".
Racing NSW and the Australian Turf Club have also pitched the idea of Winx racing in next year's The Everest - Waller holds a slot in the $10million race - as the pursuit to host global racing's most marketable asset heats up.
