Some of Australia's greatest sporting legends are horses -- Phar Lap, Kingston Town, Black Caviar. Now a new legend has captivated the heart of the nation -- Winx.
After a patchy start, the unremarkable-looking bay filly settled into a winning streak that continues four years later and includes 22 Group 1 wins and an astonishing record-breaking four Cox Plates.
Winx: Biography of a Champion, traces the rise and rise of this extraordinary racehorse and captures the colour, excitement and nail-biting moments of her assent to the top of the world. A rich and compelling story of the highs and lows, the colour and passion of the sport of kings, it's a fitting tribute to a great Australian sporting legend. The wondrous Winx deserves nothing less.
