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.

Absolutely. Although I am a little vexed on her behalf they didn't use a picture of her.

It only makes sense she runs in the Winx Stakes.

I can't wait to watch this Friday night, but I do wish that Randwick had waited until after she retires to rename the Warwick Stakes after her.

Alizee's out for 3 months due to bleeding after a gallop, and it looks like Kementari will be among her rivals Friday.

Weird? Nah she's just that good ;)
You can make all sorts of fun jokes about it too. 'Winx ran so fast they renamed the race before she finished the line!'
'They wanted to name a street after Winx, but were afraid it'd become a HIGH SPEED zone'.
(or maybe I need to get more sleep :lol: )

They changed the Lady’s Secret to the Zenyatta before she retired. She was aiming to run in it so they changed it back to the Lady’s Secret for that year.
