Winx Commences Spring Build-Up

Tuesday, 31st May 2016

Trainer Chris Waller has provided an update on Australia's best racehorse Winx (Street Cry-Vegas Showgirl, by Al Akbar) who is in the early stages of her spring preparation, reports AAP. "Winx is progressing well and has started very light pre-training and just working on the aqua-walker," Waller said yesterday. "We could not be happier with her at this stage." Waller said the superstar mare's spring programme was yet to be decided, but confirmed it would be planned around a defence of her Cox Plate title in October. "No plans have been made apart from hoping to see her resume racing in the later part of August," he said. "She will come into the stable around the middle of June to intensify her training." Winx is currently rated the equal-best racehorse in the world alongside California Chrome with a rating of 126.
