At Moonee Valley in Melbourne, Darley's deceased shuttler & Gr1 Dubai World Cup winner Street Cry (Machiavellian-Helen Street, by Troy) celebrated an elite Gr1 success when richly talented 4YO mare Winx (Street Cry-Vegas Showgirl, by Al Akbar) unleashed her trademark explosive turn of foot to score by 4.75-lengths for trainer Chris Waller in the $3 million Gr1 WS Cox Plate (2040m) for 3YO+, over 5YO entire Criterion (Sebring-Mica's Pride, by Bite the Bullet) & 4YO Irish entire Highland Reel (Galileo-Hveger, by Danehill). In announcing herself as the best racehorse in Australia, Winx took her record to 9 wins (including the Gr1 Epsom Handicap, Gr1 Queensland Oaks, Gr2 Theo Marks Stakes, Gr2 Phar Lap Stakes & Gr2 Furious Stakes) and 3 placings (including the Gr1 Australian Oaks & Gr1 Flight Stakes) from 15 starts for $3,629,925 earnings. Winx, from the dual stakes-winning New Zealand mare Vegas Showgirl, was a $230,000 purchase by Magic Bloodstock at the 2013 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale from the draft of Coolmore Stud. Trainer Chris Waller was in awe of Winx's incredible performance in which she smashed Might And Power's course record set in 1998 (2:03.54) by running the 2040m in 2:02.98. "Obviously it was a great ride, she had a lovely run and she just put the foot down turning for home," Waller told Racing.com. "It was shades of Sunline," Waller added in reference to the champion New Zealand mare who claimed successive Cox Plates in 1999 and 2000. "She's just a superior athlete. I'm not just saying that. Just look at her...she's amazing."
