Winx launched her spring campaign with a heart-stopping win in the Warwick Stakes two weeks ago. The mighty mare will be the star attraction on Chelmsford Stakes day at Randwick.
MELBOURNE CUP 2017
THE EVEREST 2017
While the mare struts her stuff in Sydney, the Darren Weir-trained Black Heart Bart will be on a mission to win back-to-back Memsie Stakes. The $1m sprint is the first Group 1 race of the new racing season and has pulled together another strong field, including interstate raiders Yankee Rose and Le Romain.
The race will also feature the winners of the Australian Derby (Jon Snow), Australian Cup (Humidor) and Australian Guineas (Hey Doc). Hey Doc showed his spring credentials with an impressive first-up win in the Aurie’s Star Handicap.
Former Perth star Vega Magic is favourite for the Memsie.
