For Winx, it was her 33rd victory in a row, her 37th overall, her 26th at Group 1 level and it took her earnings well beyond $26 million while it also marked trainer Chris Waller's 100th Group 1 win.

Settling midfield, Winx came wide around the home turn as jockey Hugh Bowman was desperate for her not to get caught up in traffic and after a little struggle fending off the Japanese horse Kluger, she surged clear to the roars of a packed Randwick.

Hartnell was third to make it his four Group 1 placings behind the great mare.
