Winx among 61 Australian Cup entries

Aaron Hamilton in Latest News 24 Jan 2017
  • Winx highly unlikely.
  • Lindsay Park stable with 13 entries.
Awesome Rock wins the Australian Cup ahead of Preferment (NZ) but lost after a protest took place

Australia's best racehorse, Winx, has featured among 61 entries for the Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) which is set to take place at Flemington on March 11.

However, with the $4 million Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) being her main aim this campaign, it’s highly unlikely the Chris Waller-trained mare will take her place in the field.

Reigning Melbourne Cup (3200m) champion Almandin and Caulfield Cup (2400m) winner Jameka head a star-studded list of gallopers that also includes 2016 Australian Cup winner Preferment and Godolphin pinup horse Hartnell.

Racing Victoria (RV) Executive General Manager – Racing, Greg Carpenter, was pleased with the depth and quality of horses nominated in 2017.

“As it stands there is the possibility that we could see the Cox Plate, Melbourne and Caulfield Cup champions, among a host of other Group 1 winners from 2016 squaring off in one of the strongest Australian Cups we have seen in some time,” he said.

Trainers David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig have shown the depth of their Lindsay Park stable and have thrown in 13 nominations, while Macedon Lodge trainer Robert Hickmott has nine entries for the $1.5 million race.
