'A deft writer with a sense of humour. It's Rule's access to the Winx camp that adds the X-factor.' Stephen Romei, The Australian

'Superb' Max Presnell, The Sydney Morning Herald


'Excellent' The Age

'One of the most remarkable and enjoyable sporting stories in my lifetime.' Bruce McAvaney

'She just exploded,' Bowman recalls of that moment, the wonder not dimmed by time and retelling. 'She put the race to sleep in three strides. It was like a fairy tale. A star was born that day.' She wins that first Cox Plate by nearly five lengths, running away. The performance makes her name. A win with X factor.

Australia's world champion racehorse Winx has become a sporting giant, transcending racing in the same way that Muhammad Ali transcends boxing and Bradman transcends cricket. She is described by her trainer, Chris Waller, as a supreme athlete -- a world-class sprinter with a freakish ability to dominate longer distances 'like Usain Bolt running in 1500-metre races'. She is the Phar Lap of the modern age, and one of the greatest racehorses in 300 years of thoroughbred racing. In Winx: The Authorised Biography, Andrew Rule, her owners, her breeder, her trainer and her rider tell the real stories behind the world's greatest racehorse.

'I am proud and humbled to work with Andrew Rule and Allen hUnwin on this important book that details the life of a very special horse.' Chris Waller, Trainer

'Peter, Patty, Richard and I are thrilled to have Winx's story honoured in this book about her incredible record. Winx has performed amazingly and we are excited to work with Allen eUnwin, and for everyone to read her story.' Debbie Kepitis, Co-owner
