WONDERMARE Winx (Chris Waller/ Hugh Bowman) put in an astonishing performance to retain her Cox Plate title and extend her winning sequence to 13.
Hartnell, who had comfortably beaten subsequent Caulfield Cup winner Jameka on his latest start, had been viewed as a formidable rival in one of the most eagerly-anticipated contests in recent history, but he was brushed aside by Winx, who cruised into the lead on the turn for home and motored clear in the straight.
Hartnell held on for second, while Yankee Rose was third.
