I wouldn't call them challengers! I have long been a big fan of Australian Derby winner Jon Snow but Grunt and Kings Will Dream are expected to fill the placings behind Winx

I swear the #3, Mighty Boss, is a palomino; he's so golden with a pale flaxen mane and tail. :o

They showed Gunnedah :? Commentator kinda described what was going on at Flemmington but they were showing the horses circling at the gate at Gunnedah. I'll just wait for the replay :lol:

OMG, she nearly gave me a heart attack!
But, even trapped behind horses, running out of ground, barely finding a opening...and then whhoooossshhh. :o
She is just . . . . . . . . . .
:mrgreen: ...too cool for words.

ETA: Just read about your television coverage NOT showing Winx live. What? Who in the whole Southern Hemisphere would DO that!? :roll:

I have lots of confidence in Winx, not as much in Hugh. Glad they got it done.

Her barnmate Youngstar really ran with well her to get 2nd. I don't know anything about Youngstar but she ran like Winx's shadow there in the stretch.

G1 Queensland Oaks winner over 11f a couple of months ago. She will go next to the Caulfield Cup and then possibly a MelbCup

When a horse is good enough to win in spite of their jockey rather than because of them :lol:

Wasn't his smartest effort but she got him out of strife. Any other horse & maybe any other track you might have been worried. But that was never in doubt.

In terms of TV coverage it was live on 2 free to air channels.

I believe the streaming sites have rights to different racetracks. The one RugbyGirl gave out is good for Sydney as I understand it

For future reference https://www.racing.com/live-vision.aspx should get you Melbourne races - including the Cup, Cox Plate etc

The jockeys that finished behind Winx make a quick comment on how their horses went
