Champion Winx Horseform and her trainer Chris Waller Horseform have been the biggest winners over the Sydney autumn carnival as she ended her career with three successive Group One wins.

Her stablemate The Autumn Sun Horseform 's two Group One wins signalled the end of his career with the colt off to stud. Another Waller stablemate Verry Elleegant Horseform also won twice at the highest level, with some tipping her to be the next champion.


Winx's final campaign assured she would win an unprecedented fourth Horse of the Year title and her farewell brought the biggest crowd to Randwick this century.
