Chris Waller's magnificent daughter of Street Cry took her place alongside three-time Cox Plate victor Kingston Town after she was pressed all the way to the line by the gallant Humidor.
The win takes the Chris Waller-trained mare to first on the all-time leading prizemoney earners for Australian racehorses, eclipsing the $15 million mark, as well as her 15th Group 1 victory.
Jockey Hugh Bowman was caught wide in the early stages before easing Winx to settle fifth in the running line.
Directly on the Emirates, Waller added: "Whether she has another run this prep, when she goes overseas - if she goes overseas - it'll all unfold and be pretty obvious I would say".
"She will will be recognised as one of the greatest horses to grace the Australian turf and to be a part of her career, I can't explain how much that means. She would give the race the X-factor and we've spoken to the owners so they can think about it".
Winx, trained in Sydney by expatriate New Zealander Chris Waller, took her earnings to 15,577,000 Australian dollars ($11.96 million), surpassing triple Melbourne Cup victor Makybe Diva's previous Australasian record of A$14.5 million ($11.14 million).
The nine-year-old cemented a place in his fourth Melbourne Cup with victory in the Moonee Valley Cup (2500m) over his stablemate Libran who also heads to Flemington.

Federal judge in Hawaii blocks Trump's 3rd travel ban
The precedent Watson relied on in his ruling came from, of all places, Trump's least favorite appeals court: the U.S. Hawaii argued that the updated ban is a continuation of Trump's "promise to exclude Muslims from the United States".
Nobody expected it to be this close, but Winx has completed her Ladbrokes Cox Plate (G1) three-peat.
"She's the type of horse that you dream of".
"Fortunately we got the upper hand and well done to connections of all runners, they have run second to a very good horse".
"I was concerned for a moment down the straight but she is Winx", he said. But trying to compare one horse to another, they're all different.
Waller had said that there was "a bit of confidence" going into the race, with Winx rated a $1.15 chance to defeat the other eight in the field.
"She's an animal that we love and horses come first in this sport".
The mare started the race as the shortest Cox Plate favourite since Phar Lap in 1931.
