CHAMPION mare has again shown why she is rated the world's best with her 25th consecutive winner to respond to the Black Caviar's record in Queen Elizabeth Stakes.
Jockey Hugh Bowman took her back from her outside port before she made her usual move closer to the tournament to the home.
From there there was a Winx procession that recorded a world record 18. Group 1 success after paying to Gailo Chop ($ 26) to win 3¾ lengths with Happy Clapper ($ 11) for the third.
Daily Telegraphs Matt Jones looks at how the race was won.
HOW THE RACE WAS BE
Winx got clean but settled last from the wide gate while Gailo Chop took the race with the Classic Uniform and Consensus.
Gailo Chop has the lead on its own and controls the races to his taste. There is not much hurry, as little concerns Winx fans as she last sits after Happy Clappy and Humidor.
Craig Williams is not pleased with the speed just after the Japanese runner Ambitious goes 800m and creates more speed that fits Winx, as she's still last with Happy Clapper.
Winx begins to get into her work and round the field to be the widest runner in. Gailo Chop is kicking in front.
Winx passes just past Gailo Chop and runs clear as Happy Clapper runs along the track and Humidor tries to do what he did in Cox Plate and follow Winx to the line.
It's the whole champion Winx strolling across the line almost four lengths free of Gailo Chop who did well to hold on the second time while Happy Clapper made good ground after being stuck in straight.

WHAT JOCKEYS SEGTE
"She's just an extraordinary athlete, she creates so much attention, I'm just so proud, I'm so proud of her and I'm just so proud to be part of it.
"What can I say I'm lost for words."
"There are so many sprockets on the steering wheel and I know I'm getting dream here today, God forbid if something went wrong, it would not be a good place to be, but she's so unusual she's able to overcome everything and what a pleasure she is for Sport.
"I know I have the engine to roll them up, but I can not do it. It was alone, Ambitious did a bit of a mid-race movement that luckily played in my hands."
"The The bottom line is that she has 10-12l on her rivals, that makes it easy for me. " 2. MARK ZAHRA (GAILO CHOP)
" He has driven enormously. There are not many times you go into a group 1 happy to drive another, but I think we can do it today. "
Kerrin McEvoy (Happy Clapper)
" He went well. It was just a modest pace. He used himself well and remained well. "
3. BLAKE SHINN (HUMIDOR)
" Humidor ran super. There was just not enough pace there to allow him to run at his best. I thought he ran a brave race with a credible fourth. "
4. CRAIG WILLIAMS (AMBITIOUS)
" He got the first 1000m to the right. Then someone came to him from behind, he became keen and departed from that time. I thought he was a little clear in his straight line, but it turns out he has lost three shoes, so that's a good excuse. "
5. JOAO MOREIRA (SUCCESS DAYS)
" He did not break as well as we hoped so we ended up and he was a little too keen and could not finish. He also found the earth too hard. "
6. ANDREW ADKINS (CLASSIC UNIFORM)
" He is certainly looking for a spell now. He has done a good job, and it was probably hard for him too. "
7. MICHAEL WALKER (COMIN & THROUGH)
" I do not expect him to be 2000m. "
8. DAMIAN LANE (ODEON)
"He ran a really credible race. The pace came early in the race and I was not quite ready to go so I thought he was doing well to custody. "
9. JASON COLLETT (CONSENSUS)
" She did not like it well. To run as well as she did, I'm quite pleased with that. "
