Ken Callander’s Winx declaration

The Mighty mare Winx is looking to stretch her unbeaten streak to 29 straight races and in the process secure an unprecedented 4th consecutive Cox Plate in 2 weeks time

Winx’s record breaking performances have many asking the question of where she sits amongst the greatest horses of all time.

Speaking on the Macquarie Sport breakfast show, racing icon Ken Callander gave his thoughts on where he rates the unbeatable horse, “She’s the best I’ve seen. Clearly the best I’ve seen. She’s wont at weight for age by huge margins. She’s virtually been unbeatable for 3 seasons. She’s won our big handicaps the Epsom and the Doncaster. She’s had her career magnificently managed by Chris Waller.”

Callander went on to give credit to the Jockey who has ridden Winx for the majority of her record run, “And I’ve got to say, Hugh Bowman, what’s he rider her now? About 23 times and he’s handled the pressure great too. I know he got into a little bit of trouble the last start but he got out of it.”
