Winx was the winner of her last 33 starts in a row with 25 of them at group 1 level, including four Cox Plates. She was mated with Australia's champion stallion in I Am Invincible at Yarraman Park.

Winx missed at her first two servings but on a third occasion during Cox Plate week, a time were she had ruled the racing world for the past four years, the successful cover was made.

It is unlikely any of Winx's offspring will be sold, with the ownership group wanting to keep the family, which will be very valuable.
