After his facile win at Turffontein over 1600m on Saturday 21 October 2017 shouldering 61.5Kg. They may just name a hurricane after him, “Unagi”, made a talented field look ordinary when he quickened away in the final 300m to go onto win by almost three lengths at the line. Well ridden by former South African Champion jockey, Gavin Lerena, he had Unagi close to the pace and made his move early in the straight to go on and win a good contest. Unagi has a distinct liking for this course and distance and should be followed when racing over 1600m on the inside track at Turffontein. Congratulations to the owners Bruce & Jo Gardner, Pravin Chetty, Greg Sadie & Darren Simpson. Unagi a son of Admire Main was bred by Summerhill Stud!
