"She needs to be remembered for winning today, if she didn't she will be remembered to be one of the greatest".

Her regular jockey Hugh Bowman sustained a split lip when Winx raised her head as he attempted to kiss her after dismounting but nothing was going to ruin his day.

Winx, unlike so many human athletes, has been able to end the journey on her terms.

The 7-year-old mare, which also holds a world record for winning 25 Group One races, retires on Saturday as one of the greatest-ever race horses.

Debbie Kepitis, a part-owner of Winx, said: "She is the most unbelievable, supreme athlete I've ever seen handled by the best coach".

Curry becomes all-time leader in playoff 3-pointers made
Golden State forward Kevon Looney told reporters he thought Curry "almost cried" following Woods' final round. Kerr made sure the Warriors tuned in to see Woods' victory. "It was pretty unbelievable and fun to watch".

Though she will be something around 1-10 favorite to give the racing public the fairy-tale farewell they are yearning for, the Queen Elizabeth should test her as much as she has been tested in recent memory.

"Because riding Winx was a real privilege but it was only a one-off and she isn't my horse, she is Hughie's".

But what of Winx, the wonder mare who goes into retirement after 33 consecutive wins.

"It's hard to explain without getting too emotional", trainer Chris Waller said. In the span of the last 48 months, Winx has won 32 consecutive races, at distances ranging from 1300 meters (G2 Theo Marks 2015) up to the metric mile and a quarter, including a record 24 races at Group 1 level.

While a win never looked in doubt in Winx's farewell as she strolled to the lead, Japanese-trained Kluger stuck on gamely to finish just 1 1/2 lengths adrift of the world's best racehorse.

McDonald knows being lengths in front of Winx today is at least better than being behind her but he has seen enough to know anything close to the glamour girl's best should send her into retirement a victor and He's Eminent scrapping for the not-inconsiderable crumbs from her table. I am just so proud of her, I really am. "Because I tell you there are times I haven't wanted to".

Part-owner Debbie Kepitis said: "This is a fairytale ending, we weren't sure if we'd get that, but how wonderful is that girl? She is the most wonderful, supreme athlete I think I've ever seen".
