Japanese-bred Kluger, a G2 victor in Japan for Carrot Farm who had not won a race since 2016, finished second, beaten 1 1/2 lengths, with Godolphin's veteran G1-winning Hartnell a distant third in the field of nine older runners going 2,000 meters (1 1/4 miles) on good turf in front of a packed house of 43,833 at Randwick racecourse. To be able to deal with it, with the emotions, the way that I have, makes me very proud.

Bowman settled Winx in sixth place in the nine-horse field and he made his run on her at the 600m.

Asked how he felt, Bowman said: "It's over, isn't it?"

Chris Waller said it was an wonderful experience to see so many people turn out for her farewell race.

"Everyone watching around the world".

And you need to be more than "a good one" to earn the ovation and adoration Winx received at Randwick on Saturday.

"America, Europe. Africa. All over Australia".

'It is not only her athleticism and record on the track that has captured the hearts and minds of the nation, it is so much more'. I mean, she just showed you what she is capable of doing.

"Purely in racing terms, I reckon it's the most anticipated race and race day in my lifetime", he said before hosting Channel Seven's coverage.

She's apples - Never a cause for concern from Hugh Bowman.

Owner Chris Waller, who was also celebrating a 100th Group One win thanks to Winx, said he was glad the fairytale ended as he hoped it would. "And it is such a special moment to share it with not only my attractive wife and my lovely children, but the handsome people who have been right behind Winx", Waller said.

"Whether they are here at Randwick today, but all around Australia, New Zealand, the world".

"We didn't expect her to be coming this far and her winning sequence, so I've been prepared for the last 12 months for her to be retired", said Waller ahead of the race, who prefers to sit alone and watch when Winx is racing.
