Waller adds Winx to undercard at Randwick

CHAMPION mare Winx will contest a special jump-out before the opening race at Royal Randwick on Saturday.

The Chris Waller-trained Winx takes on stablemates The Autumn Sun, D'Argento and Foxplay in a 1000m trial.

Winx scored her 26th consecutive win in the Winx Stakes two weeks ago and Waller is preparing the mighty mare for the Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m) at Royal Randwick on September 15.

Godolphin's Viridine will have a solo 800m exhibition gallop before the Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott-trained duo of Santos and Siege Of Quebec work over 1000m prior to the Winx jump-out.

Meanwhile, Waller and his stable staff posed with Winx - wearing their favourite sporting jerseys - for a social media photo in support of Jersey Day on Friday.
