Kepitis: Everyone Falls In Love With Winx

By Brad Gray

Bias or not, most Australians will argue to the hilt that Winx is the best horse in the world, despite the world rankings saying otherwise, but what is undisputed is that she is the darling of our turf.

“It’s just wonderful to have everybody love her the way they do. People from all walks of life too. She is a magnificent horse. Everyone falls in love with her,” said Winx’s owner Debbie Kepitis.

“It’s dream material. Pinch yourself. Once in a lifetime. I’m on the top of a roller coaster and I just hope I stay there for a little bit longer.”

Kepitis couldn’t believe the turnout to see Winx first-up in the Apollo Stakes given the meeting was shifted to a Monday.

Winx returned in brilliant fashion

“It was amazing to see the crowd roll in. It’s great to have the support of everybody and makes the nerves a little less worrying but to see her perform the way she did was great.”

“She’s not a machine so you just hope after a spell they come back, and she did.”

“To hear the crowd. When I looked back and saw the crowd on a Monday afternoon at Randwick for my horse, it was just mind blowing.”

“It brings tears to my eyes actually, just talking about it. The memories come flooding back.”

Like Chris Waller though, Kepitis maintains a very healthy respect for her rivals and the unpredictable nature of racing ahead of her run in the Chipping Norton Stakes.

“It’s lovely that all the trainers respect her and know what she can do but it’s racing and things can happen in racing that don’t happen anywhere else. That’s why you get the adrenalin rush, why you worry and why it’s so exciting because it’s such an unknown.”
