The world should know by the end of this week when and where superstar mare Winx will have her next start.
Online bookmaker sportsbet has Winx the $1.20 favourite for the Emirates Stakes at Flemington. Trainer Chris Waller is yet to decide on whether his three-time Cox Plate winner will race again this preparation, or be rested until next year.
A trip to Europe is also in the pipeline, with Winx at $3.50 to win at Royal Ascot in 2018. The wonder mare is also a $3.50 chance to make it four Cox Plates in a row.
“Whether you’re into racing or not Winx is an absolute star. Connections have some decisions to make, but most Aussies would probably vote for Winx to stay home and come back to the Valley for an historic fourth Cox Plate,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
