Winx Arrives Back At Rosehill

By Brad Gray

Champion mare Winx has arrived back at Chris Waller’s stables after completing four weeks of pre-training with Waller reporting that the late five-year-old has strengthened up even further.

“I am very happy with the way she has returned from her winter break. She appears as to have filled out a little and this is backed up by the scales weighing 534kgs which is up about 5kgs at the same stage of her previous preparation,” Waller said in a statement.

Nothing has been set in stone but the Warwick Stakes to be run on August 19 has been pencilled in to kick off her preparation before she’ll likely tackle the Chelmsford Stakes and George Main Stakes.

“The Warwick Stakes is likely to be our starting point for her spring campaign, however I would like to get the next two weeks of training out of the way before locking in definite races,” Waller said.

“Naturally, the spring program generally defines itself leading towards the Cox Plate and my intentions will be no different, spacing her races throughout to get her there in the best condition possible.”
