Winx streaks away to win 21st straight race”

Winx has notched up her 21st consecutive race victory in some style as she streaked away for a routine victory in the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes at Flemington.

The Flemington crowd which had flocked to the track to see the superstar of the turf started clapping with 400m to go in expectation that she was going to thrash her rivals.

Winx's next trip to the races will be at Moonee Valley on October 28 where she will be chasing a third successive win in the Cox Plate.

Winx settled fifth in the run about eight lengths behind bolter Magicool who led from Sir Isaac Newton. There's no training manual for a horse like Winx, we've managed to get it right but she makes us get it right, ' Waller said.

Her jockey Hugh Bowman described the win "as smooth sailing".

'It's a dream to be a part of this, ' Bowman told News.com.

Humidor, who comfortably defeated Hartnell at his last run, was considered the only chance to ending her unbelievable run, however he couldn't match it with the champion, sitting behind her in the run.

Venture Storm battled on gamely to run second, with Humidor plugging into third.
