Winx's owners confirmed on Friday that their world champion mare is on foal. The Tighe, Treweeke & Kepitis families issued a media statement saying that they are delighted to confirm that Winx is expecting her first foal in spring 2020.
They said that Winx has taken to retirement wonderfully well and has settled in perfectly to her new home.
''We are very excited about this next stage of her career. Hopefully she will be blessed with good luck and good health through the balance of her pregnancy delivering a happy and healthy first foal by I
Am Invincible,''they said.
''He is a fantastic stallion and we are very grateful to the Mitchell Family and all of the team at Yarraman Park for their assistance through the breeding season. Similarly, to those who participate in the daily care of Winx at her new home.
''We consider ourselves fortunate to have her in the hands of such talented and considerate horse people. She looks as happy now as she did when she was racing, which is fantastic for us to see.
''Periodically we will place updates on our website & social media forums.
''Happy Christmas to all from Winx & all of us.''
