Winx retires having been unbeaten in four years

Champion Australian mare Winx bid farewell Saturday by winning her 33rd race in a row, ending her glittering career on a high with an fantastic four-year unbeaten streak.

Waller said that although her racing career is now over, the seven-year-old daughter of Street Cry would remain at his Rosehill stables or most of the next week so he and her staff could say their farewells.

Winx's victory took her winning sequence to 33, her tally of Group 1s to 25 and sent her earnings past the $26 million barrier.

The dream team of Bowman and mighty mare Winx. "She has captured the hearts of people all around the world".
