Mini Winnie registered back-to-back victories 10 days apart, which is precisely what his late dam, fellow Quenten Jackson-prepared galloper Aunty Winnie, did in 2009 before the trainer endured 12 years without saddling a winner.

Mini Winnie’s MGM Bulk Handicap triumph at Bunbury was not as easy as his success in the same grade at the same track under the same jockey (Mitchell Pateman) earlier this month, but it resulted in him mirroring the feat of Aunty Winnie a dozen years ago. In tandem with Chloe Pearce, Aunty Winnie won back-to-back Ascot handicaps in February 2009.

Mini Winnie’s 16 starts have produced three firsts, three seconds and three thirds. Mini Winnie is the youngest of Aunty Winnie’s three foals and the only one to win a race.
