Winx Rated World's Best Turf Horse

By Brad Gray

Winx has been rated the world’s third best horse behind American stars Arrogate and California Chrome in London overnight at Longine’s World’s Best Racehorse Awards.

This also makes her the world’s highest rated turf horse and the world’s highest rated filly or mare. Her rating of 132 equals the career peak rating of Black Caviar, which was achieved in the 2011 Newmarket Handicap.

Other Australian horses fared well too with Godolphin’s Hartnell ranking eighth while Chautauqua ranked 18, with the grey flash also rated the world’s highest rated horse in the 1000m-1300m division.

Meanwhile, the leading three-year-old sprinter was Flying Artie, which sets up a mouth-watering clash with Chautauqua in the $2.5m Darley TJ Smith Stakes over The Championships.

Chris Waller told the UK press that after Winx races through the Sydney autumn carnival and tackles a third Cox Plate that an international jaunt is on the cards.

“Royal Ascot’s definitely on our radar and we could even give her a European campaign to make bringing her over worthwhile,” Waller told Racing Post.

“We understand the expectation to take her and show her to the world,” Waller then told ANZ Bloodstock News.

“Not just for one race, but a preparation which could involve four or five races.

“There’s a good program of races in Europe at a mile all through the summer and it would be exciting to run in a few.”

Winx will trial at Rosehill next Tuesday before kicking off her campaign in the The Star Apollo Stakes on February 11 at Randwick.
