Phar Lap, Kingston Town, Black Caviar - now a new superstar has captivated the heart of the nation.

The beautiful bay Winx has transcended the track to become a national icon, earning the affection and acclaim usually reserved for just a chosen few. Since the start of her extraordinary winning streak, Winx has run like a horse possessed. Now ranked No 1 in the world, she has won 23 races in a row and counting, including three Cox Plates, matching Kingston Town's record. As well, she's won 17 Group 1 races, breaking a record held since 1984. In 2017 she was inducted into the Australian Racing Hall of Fame, only the third horse to be so honoured after Sunline and Black Caviar.

At this rate, Winx might just become the greatest Australian horse that ever raced. But the wins and accolades are just part of the Winx story, a story that hasn't been told in full until now. Winx: biography of a champion , is a book not just about an extraordinary horse, but about the people who made it all happen, their hopes, dreams, a whole lot of hard yakka and, sometimes, hard cash. By racing aficionado and bestselling writer of Peter Moody's A Long Way from Wyandra and with 48 pages of stunning colour photographs, the book is essential reading for racing fans everywhere.

This great Australian sporting legend deserves nothing less.
