She apparently went 10.80 in one of her final eighths, when she went by the field to pull away, I would guess. She does top sprinter speed at the end of a staying race.

She takes 2 strides to every other horses one, if not more. Honestly after the race she didn't even look like she raced yet.

She will get a freshening now. No word on what her next race will be. The past two years, after her April starts, she freshened and came back in August in the Group 2 Warwick Stakes at Randwick.

The Warwick has been upgraded to a Group 1 this year and they had announced last year it was going to be named the Winx Stakes for the 2018 running.

I would love to see Winx winning the inaugural Winx Stakes.
