Justin Mburu Powers Hawker Fury to claim a tipple crown at sports Kenya St. Leger


Potency poured out of Hawker Fury like a pneumatic drill.

He simply sashayed past School of Rock to robustly cushion the Sports Kenya St Leger at Ngong.

Laden with the purest evidence of superior class, interpretation of this race was that Heni Greyling was insulated from any worries, sitting behind School of Rock
until he decided to make a clean break.

Consequently, Justin Mburu's elaborately composed Hawker Fury, is now the Triple Crowner of Ngong.

Trained by Onesmus Mutua, all networks must wallow in the sheer moment of ecstasy, to allow the final Classic to sink in.

Mutua did not rest on any laurels.

He also delivered Eagle Bay and Santorini as a hat-trick.

Elsewhere, Navy Seal (Richard Kibet), neatly documented the Nyayo Stadium Nakuru Champion Stakes from Busselton, but others were only sighted as distant fodder.

Don't you just love the names of ownership - Galloping Geriatrics!

Oliver Gray, Joe Muya, and, Steve Njuguna, must be mentioned, in order that their wins are not faded out by Hawker Fury euphoria.
