webnexttech | Multimillion-dollar baby: How Winx’s near-death scare led to the world’s most sought-after filly

After tragically losing her first still-born foal in 2021, Winx struggled with complications and sickness so badly her owners feared the champion mare might not survive. “It is no secret with Winx what she went through, she had a very tough time,” Tom Magnier, owner of the Coolmore Horse Stud where she now resides in the Hunter, said. “There were times where we nearly thought we’d lose her. But she is a fighter and she is tough, and here we are. She got pretty sick at one stage. It was a worrying time for the owners. But she is a very tough filly, she bounced out of that. “There were times when we never thought we’d get a foal out of Winx. I have to give full credit to he farm staff here. They are incredible. The same guy who foaled Winx foaled this filly. She is an amazing mare, she is a fighter.”
