'In The Presence Of Greatness': Winx Battles To History In Cox Plate

Chris and Stephanie Waller have come along way since going to the same school at Foxton

Winx now moves level with Kingston Town for three Cox Plate titles to her name.

Waller and Winx's owners were still basking in the glow of a heart-stopping third Cox Plate win on Sunday, stressing it was not a fait accompli the horse would embark on a European campaign next year which could take in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.

The six-year-old notched her 22nd victory in a row with jockey Hugh Bowman delivering yet another stellar ride atop the crown jewel of Australian racing, with a narrow win over a gallant Humidor, who came close to running down the champ, and Folkswood back in third.

"She has just made history".

Treasury Disputes Arbitration Rule's Costs, Benefits
A Treasury report argued that plaintiffs in class action lawsuits were no better off than they were under forced arbitration. Many of them issued statements citing studies asserting that the rule would do more harm than good for consumers.

"To be able to manage an animal like this and bring her back three years in a row to peak on one particular day, I think it goes unnoticed". "She will be recognized as one of the greatest horses to grace the Australian turf, and to be a part of her career I can't explain how much that means". "She's unbeaten for nearly three years now, and I'd be lying if I said I didn't go to bed at night thinking of her getting beaten".

And she didn't disappoint, out-classing all opposition in the race.

Winx returned $2.10 in the USA win and place pools and won with a time of 2:02.98, setting a new record (and eclipsing her previous mark in the race).

"You've got the elite horses, the elite jockeys but it's one of those days where everything has fallen into place". We are are just going through the motions at the moment. "It was great to see her moving forward in that normal style but geez Humidor gave her a hell of a fight".

Woman says Harvey Weinstein assaulted her in NYC
While Haleyi did not disclose exactly how old she was at the time of the alleged attack, she was reportedly in her 20s. She claims that Weinstein, however, persisted and performed oral sex on her and then masturbated in front of her.

He will aim for another with Humidor who ran fifth in last week's Caulfield Cup and backed up because the trainer was unhappy with how he was ridden. But trying to compare one horse to another, they're all different.

"I'm not there myself but Jo Taylor and the staff said she's fantastic so that was music to my ears".

Trainer Chris Waller is due to fly into Melbourne on Tuesday to make a decision on whether the three-time victor of Australasia's weight-for-age championship will have a spring carnival swansong in the Emirates Stakes at Flemington in a fortnight.

Nobody expected it to be this close, but Winx has completed her Ladbrokes Cox Plate three-peat on October 28.
