There'll be no Monday blues for Mighty Kenny
Le Grange's runner impresses at morning trackwork
He looked good at the trials last week, finishing just a length behind Hip Hip Hooray and Situation after sitting near the rear and coming home widest of the lot.
And yesterday at morning trackwork, MIGHTY KENNY did it again, posting a nice time for the 600m.
Ridden by Barend Vorster, he cantered one round before being tested over the final sprint which he ran in a smart 35.5sec.
A good winner on March 26, he was all over them that day - stalking the pace for almost all of the 1,600m race before taking the lead 300m out to win going away like a good horse.
It was his sixth win for the Tmen Stable and it was not the first time he had left his rivals stranded in no man's land.
It was also in March last year that he did a similar number on his rivals in a 1,400m race on the turf.
Like he did when winning earlier this year, Mighty Kenny sat third, then second, before hitting the front and clearing away.
That day, the winning margin was four and a half lengths.
To his rivals whom he had run ragged, it must have seemed like an a long street.
Of late, Mighty Kenny has been near - but not near enough. He finished fourth to Newlands in mid-May and later ran fifth to Dance In The Wind on May 26. Still, in all, he has had 33 starts and has banked in over $250,000.
For all that he has done, it's hard to imagine that's he's still a four-year-old.
Keep an eye on him in the Class 3 race on the Hari Raya Puasa race meeting on Monday.
