Superstar Winx scored her 26th consecutive win to edge ahead of Black Caviar’s unbeaten run of 25 much to the delight of Sportsbet punters.
The online bookmaker has paid out over $40 million on the mare during her career and that total was added to after her effortless win in the Winx Stakes.
Winx held 78% of money and started at odds of $1.24.
Winx will have another shot at history in October when she strives for a fourth consecutive Cox Plate. After today’s win she firmed from $1.50 into $1.45 favourite.
“What a breathtaking win by Winx to break another superstar’s (Black Caviar) record. It was an effortless performance, but more importantly shows she’s well and truly on track for another unbeaten campaign and history making fourth Cox Plate,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Ella Zampatti.
