Winx farewell

Best Bets summary of Winx's race:

And here it is, the last go round, the great mare's grand farewell. The final opportunity to see our girl excel. The day has dawned, the stage is set, the hype's in overdrive. One more win to make it Group One number 25. And I'll miss her, yes I will, the way she cruises round the bend, with Bowman sitting pretty as they easily extend. The opposition winces as they gracefully glide by, just one more time thanks Hughie as she goes out on a high. Her old mate HAPPY CLAPPER's here and it looks like HARTNELL too. How fitting that the boys show up to say their last adieu. And great they both have been across the years in their own right, for 2nd to the 'mighty mare' has never been a slight. But wait you say, this race has brought some other champs undone, as at their final outing those 'good things' have been left stunned. Don't say it!! Hush you! Silence! Be away with that foul jinx! Such a fate does not await upon this date for our great WINX! So gather round and watch her do it one more time with feeling. There'll be shouting, shaking, cheering, praying, squealing. The greatest that I've ever seen in all my many years. I tell you this for certain, win or lose, there will be tears.

+1 -1

    wouldn't it be strange after a few weeks of retirement Waller inspects her and she is raring to go again. she is so brilliant and intelligent that she will tell THEM when she is ready to retire.
    stranger things have happened...a 5th Cox?

    Could it be that Ngawyni is a direct descendant of Banjo Patterson

    I'm going for the upset-and this race has provided plenty of those. Hartnell to cause a boilover. Winx/Hartnell  box quinella, too.

    That's actually Kevin Casey's preview @spinking

    Oversight I my behalf . Even Ngawyni stated its Best Bets Kevin Caseys preview . Regardless good poem to see the legend go into retirement. Hope she brains them, then again just winning will do.The stage is set for what I reckon will be one of the great and emotional days of the Australian turf. I reckon I might even have a lump in the throat as she comes back to scale one last time

    The Queen Eliazabeth  has seen both Lonhro and Octagonal beaten at their last starts in a race in two classic "Who Shot Bambi" moments. Here's hoping their is no repeat of history. At least the owner can finally retire that hideous frock to the St Vinnies shop.

    One punter has put $550,000 on Winx at $1.06. Just heard this on Sky Racing.

    Effortless yet again. It’s been a pleasure watching her career.
