Clonbrien Hero was crowned the Kerry G.A.A Supporters Race Of Champions Champion, adding to his already bursting list of honors, with a brilliant performance this evening at Tralee.

Breaking better than last week, and forcing his way to the front despite small crowding on the run up, Hero secured an inside pitch at the opening turn. Battling with the favourite, Droopys Ant out the second bend and along the back straight, it was at the third bend where Hero grabbed the lead. Forcing his rival to check slightly he pushed on to secure victory by a length and a half to land the wonderful prize for owner Kay Murphy.
