View the facts and figures for Winx ahead of the Cox Plate

WINX FACTS:

* Born – September 14, 2011.

* Sire – Street Cry.

* Dam – Vegas Showgirl.

* Cost – $230,000 at Magic Millions yearling sale.

* Prizemoney of $7,498,175 with 16 from 22 starts.

WINNING STREAK:

* Larry Cassidy was aboard for the start of the streak in last year’s Sunshine Coast Guineas.

* James McDonald, Tommy Berry and Jason Collett have also won on her.

HARTNELL COMPETITION:

*John O’Shea-trained Hartnell is the only other runner under double figures for the Cox Plate.

* The six-year-old gelding has won 10 from 26 starts and has reached new heights this preparation.

* Hartnell has been in scintillating form, capturing the Group One Turnbull Stakes at Flemington and the Hill Stakes.

HISTORY REPEATING?

* Winx and Hartnell appear set for a showdown like the 1986 Cox Plate where New Zealand star Bonecrusher engaged in a classic battle to narrowly overcome Our Waverley Star.

* Bonecrusher and Our Waverley Star took off at the 800m mark, going stride-for-stride until the last few metres.

* Bonecrusher, a winner of $3 million prize money, was rated the best horse of his time in Australasia.

* Winx was at $1.85 and Hartnell $3.30 two days out from the Cox Plate, almost a mirror of the starting prices of Bonecrusher who was the $1.90 favourite and Our Waverley Star who was at $4.
