Trainer Onesmus Mutua completes hat-trick as School of Rock (Patrick Mungai) finishes second.

South Africa’s Heni Greyling made Sports Kenya St Leger race look like a placid picnic as he gently guided Hawker Fury to victory.

School of Rock, ridden by Patrick Mungai, was second. Talk about mettle, nerve and bravery; Greyling had it all.

Call it rococo on an elevated scale of bite, because the Triple Crown was a distinction.

Justin Mburu’s Hawker Fury gently deflected School of Rock by a narrow margin to supply another touch of topspin to the jovial audience.

Trainer Onesmus Mutua felt like he had climbed Mount Everest as two clippers caught the post first; Santorini and Eagle Bay.

Patsy Sercombe’s (pictured) Navy Seal (ridden Richard Kibet) made light work of the Nyayo Stadium Nakuru Champion Stakes, turning Busselton into matchwood.

We can’t discuss the rest as they threw in their towels rather abruptly.

Spotlights also generously fell upon Oliver Gray, Joe Muya and Steve Njuguna. Good for them.
