No worries. I couldn't find a Winx thread at first. I had to do an "Advanced Search" to find this thread.
She's so good that she deserves posts about her in two different threads. :lol: ;)

What a mighty mare. I can't say enough about her. For a country so focused on sprints and speed, two year old speed at that, how amazing is she? Wins on heavy/fast ground, from distances ranging from 6 1/2f to about a mile and 3/8ths. Such versatility, with a turn of foot I haven't seen in a while. I know Nelly was a pure sprinter, but Winx's closing kick is faster than hers, IMO. There must be something in that Aussie water that makes a bunch of mares champions. So many in the last ten years even. She really is a wonder from down under :D

yeah sorry, I didn't mean to hijack the topic starter's thread.

It was late at night and i was excited, bleary eyed, and waiting for her race to start.

Winx is running in the 1500m G1 George Ryder (race 5) tonight at Rosehill. They've had a lot of rain and the track is listed as a Heavy 10. That's way beyond soft. :shock:
Good news; TVG is showing the whole card from Rosehill tonight, which includes the G1 Ranvet (race 4) which runs before the Ryder, and the biggest, richest race for two-year-olds Down Under, the Golden Slipper (race 7).
Hartnell is not facing Winx again tonight, but is running in the 2000m Ranvet.

Should they even run on that soft of turf?
May they run with the WIND

The Australian horses' regularly run on softer ground than American horses do. Irish horses probably face similar. The Oz tracks tend to 'abandon' a card only if the surface has standing water, if the surface is very irregular is its relative softness, or the trainers out walking the course sink in past mid-calf. (OK, just kidding about that last.) :P

Broke a step slow, no problem. Soggy ground, no problem. What a mare!

She pulled away from the G1 field like the rest had come to a walk. Heavy ground? So what? Apparently Winx can run on water. :P
