It'd be amazing if she did Ascot and considered the BC :D

She is just superb, absolutely superb.


Trainer almost gave up on her early in her carreer, they were going to try to get one more race out of her, trainer thought she was no good ...group 3 Sunshine Coast Guineas.....she was 17 lengths behind!

IIRC, a 'barrier trial' is not the same as a 'race.' I don't believe there is a purse, that it becomes part of a horse's official race record or that you can wager on it.
Maybe TVG will show it because, you know, WINX. :mrgreen: But I wouldn't wager on it. ;)

Winx finished sixth, beaten 2 lengths in her barrier trial. Trainer and jockey both pleased with her, especially with how relaxed she was. First official race of the season Feb 17 at Randwick.

Thanks for the info. TVG did not show it, but the channel did have a lot of US tracks to cover this afternoon.

i know it wasn't considered a real race, but should this finish be worrying at all? i'm not super familiar with how barrier trials work/are analysed/etc.

No. Its essentially just a gate workout but with other horses. Each horse just goes out and does what the connections want, none of the horses were asked to do anything. As far as I know, she has only won one barrier trial ever and that was in August 2017.

There is a video of the trial at the following link:
