Rural Hawaii produced another big performance to take victory in his Con & Annie Kirby Memoral Semi Final at Limerick on Saturday.
Suggish from boxes, in comparison to runners inside him, he paced up well to draw alongside at the opening turn. Steering his middle to wide course at the bend helped him around the bunching on the inside and from here he was always in control. Asserting along the far side he opened up a good three length lead hitting the 3rd turn. Staying on strongly he powered to the line, recording a sensational 28.22 !
