Chris and Stephanie Waller have come along way since going to the same school at Foxton
She joined the legendary Kingston Town as a three time victor of Australia's premier Weight For Age race, extending her winning streak to 22 in a row today.
But she then had an unexpected challenge from PFD Food Services Makybe Diva Stakes (G1) victor Humidor, who had been more than seven lengths behind her in the Seppelt Turnbull Stakes (G1) three weeks ago.
The ride on Melbourne Cup favourite Almandin is up for grabs with Damien Oliver's spring carnival in tatters after stewards controversially slapped him with an improper riding charge stemming from the Cox Plate. But she got there, and that's all that matters. "But Winx is a champion and they keep finding don't they".
"I am lost for words".
Waller may not have to worry about that for another few months, as Winx has just a 40% chance of lining up in the G1 Emirates S. on November 11.
Jockey Hugh Bowman needed to give Winx more encouragement than usual, but the Street Cry mare won by a comfortable-enough long neck at the finish in a course-record time of 2:02.94. "It doesn't matter to her and us whether the [Emirates] is worth a thousand dollars or a million, we'll do what's best for her as we always do". She broke her own track record by 0.04 seconds, with a time of two minutes, 2.94 seconds.
Bowman had nothing but praise for the great mare.

Samsung to release Oreo updates in Q1 2018 A message in Spanish on the Galaxy Note 8 box reads: "A year ago we asked you to turn it off, we welcome you today on board". At the moment, we can expect the update being rolled out first to the Galaxy Note 8 , Galaxy S8 , and the Galaxy S8 Plus.
"I was born the year Kingston Town won his first Cox Plate and to think that she's emulated the great, it's incredible".
"Mark said he didn't feel great coming back so we'll have a look at him in the morning", Weir said.
The win also sees Winx surpass Makybe Diva in the Australian prize money stakes, and also equalling Black Caviar's Group 1 wins at 15.
"I've had an wonderful career", Bowman added.
"I've had an unbelievable career and Winx delivered me my first Group One in this race two years ago".
"You don't have to make her run faster".
Trainer Chris Waller said: "It was close, as you would expect in a Cox Plate".
