Punter places record $550,000 bet on Winx – risking that amount to win $33,000 if she takes out her swansong race

A confident punter has dropped a record $550,000 bet on Winx to win her final race at Royal Randwick in Sydney. 

The champion mare will take to the turf for the last time in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes 2000 metre on Saturday afternoon.

One punter is extremely confident the mare will conclude her unbeaten streak with another victory.

TAB revealed its biggest ever Fixed Odds win bet was placed on Winx, with a $550,000 at $1.06.

If Winx makes it to the final post in first place, the TAB punter will make a profit of $33,000.   

Winx can stretch her winning streak to 33 races in just under an hour.

‘The $550,000 wager at $1.06 on Winx clearly eclipses the biggest TAB Fixed Odds win bet ever placed and that was a $345,000 bet at $1.05 on Winx seconds before the barriers opened for the George Ryder Stakes at Rosehill Gardens on March 23,’ TAB’s Trent Langskaill said. 

‘Even though there are 40 minutes until the running of the Queen Elizabeth Stakes, $3.2 million has been placed on Winx to win her last race, which has already surpassed the $3.104 million wagered on her to win last October’s Cox Plate at Moonee Valley.’  

Winx is due to leave the gates at 3.05 on Saturday afternoon.
