Winx had some trouble winning her 28th competitive race the Tab Turnbull Stakes (Grade I) Oct. 6 at Flemington. With three furlongs left it appeared her winning streak was in jeopardy.
She followed the field, second-last, until the run for home. Winx still had the majority of the field to pass in the straight, and she was not gaining ground on the leaders.
