Will Australia's biggest Winx punter return for her fourth Cox Plate

Australia's biggest Winx punter has placed over $1.2 million on the Chris Waller trained mare throughout her career and TAB.com.au is waiting for his next outlay before the mighty galloper attempts her fourth Group 1 WS Cox Plate (2040m) at The Valley on Saturday.

The TAB customer placed $56,000 on Winx to win the 2017 TAB Chipping Norton Stakes and has been placing those winnings on the queen of the turf ever since.

The punter’s most recent wager on Winx was $170,000, at $1.16, on her to win the Turnbull Stakes, in what was TAB’s biggest ever bet taken on the Chris Waller trained star. 

Overall, the punter has wagered $1,210,150 on Winx since February 2017 and has collected $1,363,187.50 in that time. 

“Winx is often too short a price to be a betting proposition for most punters, however, this brave soul has bucked the trend and made a fortune as a result,” TAB’s Nick Quinn said.

“The question now is will the customer roll the dice on her in the Cox Plate and let it ride, or sit back and count their winnings.”

Winx is $1.20 to become the first horse ever to win four Cox Plates in a row.
