KERICHO

Ten Thirty ridden by David Ngure for trainer Simon Wachira and owned by Mary Binks earned the confidence of many, winning the feature race — Merchants Purse at Ngong Racecourse.

The four-year-old filly, Ten Thirty, beat stable mate Clancy by a half-length to win the race that attracted six runners. The race with all participants above 35 at rating produced a promising chance at one point moving at similar pace in one line except for Al Barak ridden by Dennis Kiprotich, who trailed to the finish.

The meeting pulled a reasonable crowd with seven races on card, but most of the punters were disappointed when the machines went down for some time, missing bets for the first five races.
