Winx Stakes History

The Winx Stakes has been run over many distances, first back in 1923 over 1400m. In 1930 the race was run over 1600m while in 1938 the race was changed back to the 1400m journey.

For the years 2000-2001 the Winx Stakes was run over 1300m before being changed back to the 1400m from 2002 until now.

In 1979 the race was given Group Two status all the way up until 2018 where the race was elevated to a Group One when the race was named after legendary mare Winx.

The race has been run between Warwick Farm, Canterbury and Randwick in the years it has been raced.

Winx, Kingston Town and Limerick are the only trio of horses to win three in succession of the event.
