Champion mare Winx (Street Cry - Vegas Showgirl) returned to the beach during her preparations for the Cox Plate on Sunday 16 October. The morning was mostly cold, grey and windy (I don't believe in adding false colour casts). Despite the inclimate weather and high winds, Winx's lovely calm and sensible demeanour meant that she was well behaved for rider Ben Cadden. Some horses become flustered in cold and windy conditions. She's not one of them.
