12-time Group 1-winning mare Winx has joined 61 past champions of the turf to have been inducted into the Australian Racing Hall of Fame.

The Chris Waller-trained daughter of Street Cry joins Sunline and Black Caviar as the only three horses to be inducted while still competing.

Inaugural Melbourne Cup winner Archer (1861), who again claimed victory in 1862, was among the equine inductees, as were Bart Cummings’ Melbourne Cup winners Light Fingers (1965) and Saintly (1996).

The Melbourne Cup theme continued in the ‘Associates’ category with five-time Melbourne Cup-winning owner Lloyd Williams honoured alongside Victorian chief steward Alan Bell and the influential Lee-Steere family from Western Australia.

Jockeys to be inducted include seven-time Grand National winner Tommy Corrigan and John Miller who won the biggest races in Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide as well as claiming every feature race on the Western Australian racing calendar.



Three-time Victorian trainers’ premiership-winners Des Judd and Brian Courtney join 39 other trainers to have been inducted.

2007 Hall of Fame inductee Gai Waterhouse paid tribute to Lloyd Williams who she declared a deserving inductee.

“Lloyd Williams is an outstanding person within the racing world. He has given so much to racing over so many years,” she said. 
“He is unique in racing as he has been a major owner for five decades. His five Melbourne Cups, as an owner, is matchless and will never be beaten. 
“Lloyd is racing’s greatest blessing and asset.”



Chairman of the Australian Racing Museum and Hall of Fame Greg Carpenter described Winx as a worthy recipient.

“Winx has captured the imagination of racing fans across the globe and is undisputedly the best mare in the world,” Carpenter said. 
“It is only fitting that she is inducted this year, joining other equine inductees including two-time Melbourne Cup winner Archer, 1965 Melbourne Cup winner Light Fingers and 1996 Melbourne Cup and Cox Plate winner Saintly, trained by the Cup’s King, the late Bart Cummings."
