SEN+ to rebrand as WINX+ for the Queen Elizabeth Stakes Day

Monday 08 April, 2019

To celebrate Australia’s favourite super horse Winx’s anticipated final race on Saturday, 1377 SEN+ will be rebranded 1377 Winx+ for a special whole-day takeover at The Championships Day 2 - Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Sydney’s Royal Randwick Racecourse.

1377 Winx+ will be completely dedicated to celebrating the illustrious career of Australia’s champion thoroughbred with a host of interviews, insights and live raceday commentary of all races from The Championships.

SEN Chief Sports Caller, Gerard Whateley and racing expert David Gateley will co-host proceedings from 11am this Saturday, while a special two-hour commemorative show ‘Celebrating Winx’ will air from 9am, with the call of The Queen Elizabeth Stakes broadcast live on both 1377 SEN+ and 1116 SEN while the entire raceday will be available via the 1377 Winx+ tile on the SEN APP.

Whateley, a self confessed racing tragic who penned the 2012 novel, ‘Black Caviar’ and has previously called at the UK’s prestigious Royal Ascot, described his excitement to headline the coverage. “Given the likelihood that this is the farewell appearance of Winx, it shapes as one of the most momentous days in the history of Australian sport.”
 
NSW Racing CEO Peter V'landys AM said he was delighted to bring one of the state’s premier racing events to a wider audience across Australia. “Having Gerard Whateley live from Randwick will only build the legend and history that is Winx. Gerard is one of those people with a rare talent that can make the hairs raise on the back of your neck with his commentary and insight.”
