Australia Post celebrates Winx’s record breaking 26th consecutive win
29 August 2018
Sauce stepped onto the race track with jockey Hugh Bowman and client Australia Post last month to promote the stamp to commemorate Australian racehorse Winx’s record breaking win.
Winx galloped to a historic win in the former Warwick Stakes, which was renamed this year to the Winx Stakes in honour of the champion mare. Her win is a new Australian record, breaking the 25 wins by Black Caviar, and is second worldwide only to the Hungarian mare Kincsem, which won all of her 54 races in the 1870s.
Australia Post released the commemorative stamp to celebrate Winx’s record breaking 26th consecutive race win last month. The $1 base rate stamp features Winx being ridden by jockey Hugh Bowman.
Bowman said the commemoration of Winx on an Australian stamp means a great deal to him and all involved with the champion mare.
“She’s really become an Australian icon who’ll be remembered for generations. For her to be commemorated in this manner is a great honour and a very worthy distinction,” he said.
Sauce was delighted to manage the national media for this very special stamp release.
