Fresh from a record fourth Cox Plate triumph, the mare will head for a spell with no decision on her future to be made until next year.
TRAINER Chris Waller and owner Peter Tighe have left the door ajar for Winx to race on next year.
"Going to the other side of the world is one thing, coming back and doing well as well as she is expected to is very hard".
"I have an very bad lot of respect for Winx and her connections, she has got an incredible record but we are right in this race".
Anyone with even the slightest knowledge of Australian racing these days realises that the quality of the locally produced horses who race at distances above 1600 metres is hardly top drawer.
Winx had looked relaxed at the barriers before the race, and she was settled quickly in fourth or fifth behind early leaders D'argento and Benbatl.
"The build-up to a fourth Cox Plate was pretty intense", he said.

Joe Kelly struck out three straight pinch hitters and Sale, originally scheduled to start Game 5, fanned three more in the ninth. It was a second disappointment in as many years for the Dodgers, who lost Game 7 last year to the Houston Astros.
"I don't think I need to say anything, Winx has said everything we need to know", Chapman replied.
"I have won two group 1s on Benbatl and he is a very good horse and we think we have him in the right race".
Winx continued her dominance at Moonee Valley on Saturday.
Kepitis is a daughter of Bob Ingham who, with his late brother Jack, raced some of the greats including Octagonal and his champion son Lonhro.
"With numerous males we don't see the best ones beyond their four-year-old seasons".
"That is why we are so lucky with Winx because her owners bought her to race and because she is in the form that she is and she is happy to race, they (owners) are happy to continue to do so". If we did we would see stronger racing but the reality is they just can't continue racing because they are so valuable.
