Sydney Racing Tips – Winx Stakes
Who will ever forget the super mare Winx and her exploits on the race track. How apt it is that the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival gets underway with the first Group 1 race named after the great mare. It is a star studded field and signals we are off and racing for the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival with the Winx Stakes. The Winx Stakes will be the major feature race of the iTipsports Expert Sydney Racing Tips form sheet with Blaazing Ben Perkins. It is a field of 14 acceptors for the Sydney Randwick Racing Tips Winx Stakes and plenty of depth and lots of class in this race.
The Winx Stakes has been a race that has grown quickly in its stake money over the last few years being worth just $175,000 in 2014 to be now $500,000. The Winx Stakes is a Group 1 run over 1400m normally run at Warwick Farm however is now run at Royal Randwick racecourse.
In renaming the Warwick Stakes to the WInx Stakes brings the champion in line with other great mares that have had races named after them. Sunline, Makybe Diva and Black Caviar have races named after them as well.
Winx won this race 3 years straight (2016-2018) indicating the class that is needed to win. It is a weight for age event that generally attracts a real balance between the hard fit winter horses and the new fresh horses at the start of a long spring campaign.
The 2020 winner Verry Elleegant is the 3-1 fav followed by Kolding 5-1, Mo’unga 7-1, Cascadian and Think it Over 10-1 with Dreamforce and Hungry Heart 13-1. The Winx Stakes is race 8 on the 10 race Randwick meeting and starts at 3.15pm EST. It promises to be a great race as we kick off the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival 2021 on our way to The Everest and Golden Eagle in October.
