The Story

A Horse Named Winx tells the inspirational story of one of our greatest athletes. At the height of her fame, Winx became known as the “people’s horse”—an Australian icon who transcended her sport—joining the realms of fellow legends like Cathy Freeman and Sir Donald Bradman. Although the world’s greatest racehorse retired in 2019, she’s still breaking records. Winx’s only foal sold this year at auction for a world record $10 million dollars. During her reign, huge crowds descended on racetracks across Australia to witness the Phar Lap of the modern era pull off the impossible—33 straight wins—a feat unlikely to ever be repeated. Winx’s final race was watched by millions worldwide. From the wilful foal who was hard to catch, to a plain leggy teenager who kept to herself and turned her back on affection, Winx became a front page phenomenon, and in the process thrust her trainer Chris Waller and jockey Hugh Bowman onto the world stage. But away from the cameras, coping with the enormous pressure of maintaining the winning streak was testing Team Winx to the limit. A Horse Named Winx goes behind the sports headlines and spectacular victories to reveal the unforgettable spirit of a champion, who away from the racetrack faced her biggest battle and once again refused to be beaten.
