Cox Plate results: Winx is the victor for the 4th time

Hugh Bowman riding Winx at the Breakfast with the Best at Moonee Valley racecourse on Tuesday

Winx is just one of seven horses to win the $5 million feature aged seven or older, and the oldest since Fields Of Omagh claimed glory in 2006.

Asked ahead of the race if it would be the last time the champion would be seen in Melbourne, trainer Chris Waller would not be drawn.

"Take nothing away from Winx, her record is absolutely outstanding and her connections have done an unbelievable job managing her career", Murphy told Melbourne radio RSN927. "The electricity that came through my body when I turned into the home straight was something that I guess only I get to feel ..."

Once jockey Hugh Bowman released the brakes at the top of the straight, the crowd erupted as the Chris Waller trained mare powered to the line to record a two lengths win over the England raider Benbatl ($10). I'm lost for words.

"Everyone watching gets so much joy and pleasure out of the superb ability of this wonderful horse". "I cannot say much more, I am gassed".

"I'll hand the reins over to Hugh and try to watch the race on my own". Winning the Manikato was a bit of a highlight.

Kepitis is a daughter of Bob Ingham who, with his late brother Jack, raced some of the greats including Octagonal and his champion son Lonhro. It helped me really calm my anxiety, so to speak and I felt pretty good today. "She is a LEGEND and I'll be always proud of her", he wrote.

Waller says over the next few days she will be thoroughly checked by his vet before she goes for a break.

"It's very hard to say what is the best of the best, but as a day it is one I will never forget". She only performs under pressure, that was my only concern that.to see her unleash as she does.
