Kenya: Wonnitestand Rules Fillies Guinea At Ngong Race Course

Patsy Sercombe-trained Wonnitestand finally showed her class in the Fillies Guinea as yesterday when she produced killer kick to win in 1:38:04 minutes at Ngong Race Course.

Oliver Gray-trained Mukora tried to put Wonnitestand under pressure, chasing hard but was overpowered four and a half lengths to the finish by the winner. The other possible challenger, Shufti-SAF trained by Gill Fraser settled for third place.

Earlier on, trainer Mohammed Noor had mixed feelings after Chamonix owned by Secret of Racing Syndicate broke from his maiden, winning the Snickers Challenge Cup over 1400m.
