Winx has made history, winning a third Cox Plate.

It marks the mare's 22nd consecutive win, but it came with a massive, massive fright in the form of Humidor.

Winx burst out in front with 200m to go, but Humidor surged home late to give Winx a genuine scare, with Winx winning by just half a length.

"She gave us a fright. She gave us a massive fright," caller Matt Hill said.

"Humidor has run the race of its life."

Folkswood rounded it out in third.

Jockey Hugh Bowman couldn't praise Winx enough.

"I'm lost for words," he said.

"To think that she's emulated the great (Kingston Town)...we are in the presence of greatness."
