Retired champion Winx is to have a new public stand at Randwick Racecourse named in her honour.

In a joint venture, Racing NSW and the Australian Turf Club will build the stand which will accommodate about 5000 people at the Leger end of the course adjacent to the Queen Elizabeth Stand.

The ATC and Racing NSW made the announcement on Tuesday with the stand expected to be operational for The Everest meeting in October 2020.

Plans are also in hand to erect a statue of the mare at Rosehill Racecourse where she was trained by Chris Waller.

Winx was retired after her third victory in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes on April 13.

The mare won 37 of her 43 starts including a record 25 at Group One level and her Queen Elizabeth victory was her 33rd in succession.

She is expected to go to stud in September but a stallion has yet to be named.

Main features of the Winx Stand:

* A Ground Floor level with undercover comfort for spectators on major race days

* Level 1 terrace will provide superior views over the racecourse

* Will cater for approximately 5000 spectators undercover

* The development is subject to a State Significant Planning Approval (SSDA) pathway

* ATC aiming to submit SSDA by late July 2019

* Pending final planning approval, ATC aiming to have the new facility operational for The Everest 2020
