If successful, she will pass the previous Australian record of 25 straight victories set by legendary galloper Black Caviar.

The so-called "match race" with rising star Kementari didn't eventuate, with Winx leaving her younger counterpart standing in the straight.

Winx's record-breaking win came in the race renamed in her honour - the group 1 Winx Stakes (formerly the Warwick Stakes) over 1400m at Randwick.

"I love being on her and I'm privileged to be on her and I get all the accolades but I'm sure she could do it without me".

Before her hot incredible hot streak, Winx had won four of her first 10 starts, which means she's sitting on 29 career wins.

The Bjorn Baker trained runner gave the team from Cressfield plenty to cheer about when she did best in a driving finish in the feature mares sprint. I think that's helped us preserve her and helped her keep that inspiration to do what she does. "What she is doing for sport in Australia - we should all take a bow and say well done". "That has to be a big part of it". You are waiting to see it again and when she does it, you're not surprised, not relieved.

Kementari is paying $4.20 with the TAB and $6 with Sportsbet and Ladbrokes.
