Still no word from Winx for the All Star Mile

Nominations close next Tuesday at noon for the inaugural $5 million All-Star Mile race and there's still no news from Chris Waller as to whether his superstar mare Winx will be amongst the list of entries.

The All-Star Mile race which will be run at Flemington on March 16th has attracted entries from Australia wide and also New Zealand, including Happy Clapper, who won last seasons Epsom Handicap and Doncaster Mile and and six imports who are yet to make their Australian debuts.

“It’s a unique mix of entries thus far which will make the public vote most intriguing,” Racing Victoria’s Greg Carpenter said.

“Amongst the 70 entries received to date are established Group 1 milers like Happy Clapper and Grunt. Dominant sprinters like Redkirk Warrior and Vega Magic, Oaks and Derby winners along with 20 three-year-olds and six imports, that are yet to make their Australian debuts.

“We’re delighted to have received entries from each state of Australia which provides racing fans across the nation the chance to be parochial and vote for their local contender or support their favourite horse.

“We’re equally excited to have received entries from the Jamie Richards stable for New Zealand’s brightest star Te Akau Shark and his classy stablemate Melody Belle who is already a Group One winner over the mile.”
