Winx’s Half-Sister to Shine in Debut at City Of Lights this Weekend
Winx, the legendary horse that won 33 races in a row, has been retired since 2019. But her legacy lives on through her half-sister, Covent Garden, who is set to make her debut this weekend at the City of Lights racecourse in Paris.
A Promising Pedigree
Covent Garden is the daughter of Snitzel, one of the most successful stallions in Australia, and Vegas Showgirl, Winx’s dam. Snitzel has sired numerous Group 1 winners and has become one of the most in-demand stallions in the country. Vegas Showgirl, on the other hand, was a modest racehorse that won just one race from six starts. But her offspring, Winx and now Covent Garden, have proven to be exceptional.
Training and Preparation
Covent Garden has been training with Chris Waller, the same trainer who prepared Winx throughout her career. Waller has been patient with Covent Garden, allowing her to develop at her own pace. The filly has shown promise in her trials, and Waller believes that she has the potential to be a quality racehorse. Covent Garden will be ridden by jockey Ben Melham, who is known for his ability to get the best out of fillies.
A Competitive Field
Covent Garden’s debut race won’t be an easy one. She will be facing a competitive field that includes some of France’s best young fillies. But Waller isn’t deterred by the challenge. He believes that Covent Garden has the ability to be competitive and is excited to see how she performs.
The Winx Connection
Covent Garden’s debut is sure to attract attention from racing fans around the world. Her connection to Winx has already made her a star in Australia, where the media has been following her progress closely. Covent Garden will be racing in the famous colours of Winx’s owner, Peter Tighe, which adds to the anticipation for her debut.
