The champion mare rounded out her career with a third consecutive win in the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) in front of around 42,000 people at Randwick in Sydney.

Winx will be stepping out for the final time under race conditions today and a third win the Queen Elizabeth Stakes will take her winning streak to thirty-three as well as collecting her twenty-fifth Group 1 win.

Jockey Hugh Bowman was emotional as he reflected immediately after the race.

Camapaigned by Peter Tighe's Magic Bloodstock Racing in partnership with Richard Treweeke and Debbie Kepitis and meticulously managed throughout her career by trainer Chris Waller, Winx, bred by John Camilleri's Fairway Thoroughbreds, was runner-up in the G1 ATC Oaks (2400m) precisely four years and two days ago and she has not lost since.

"And I didn't think this was more than just a bit of talk in her final week before her final race, but someone very closely connected to the horse has said to me that they reckon she will race at Ascot". My team do an unbelievable job.

Bowman settled Winx in sixth place in the nine-horse field and he made his run on her at the 600m.

Mr Thomas said there were "a few little things that were off-nominal but really for a first flight it was spot on". Test pilot Evan Thomas said "the flight itself was smooth, which is exactly what you want a first flight to be".

"Everyone watching around the world ..." Bowman had the Japanese runner measured, however, and won going away as Winx has done in virtually all of her victories.

"America, Europe. Africa. All over Australia". "(Winx) has captured the hearts of people all around the world". In the span of the last 48 months, Winx has won 32 consecutive races, at distances ranging from 1300 meters (G2 Theo Marks 2015) up to the metric mile and a quarter, including a record 24 races at Group 1 level.

Waller said returning to his Rosehill stable will probably give Winx the impression her campaign is not over, but it most certainly is.

The Melbourne Cup may be the race that stops the nation, but on a sunny Saturday afternoon it was Winx who drew every eyeball in Australia. "Because I tell you there are times I haven't wanted to. She is the most awesome, supreme athlete I think I've ever seen". I mean, she just showed you what she is capable of doing. "It's great for out sport", Waller said.

She also finishes her career with world record earnings of more than $26.3 million.

It was all about Winx at Randwick.
