Full Answer

Winning Brew was trained by Francis Vitale. Her jockey for the race in which she broke the record was Joanne McDaid. Despite her record-breaking run, Winning Brew does not have a particularly distinguished racing record. She placed in only two of the seven total races she ran, and was retired in 2009.
