New owner Vinnie P. on the hunt for 1st win

3yr old filly Notquitethereyet (highlighted) in action last start 21/3/19

On the hunt for first win..

Vinnie P. is a young South African engineer who recently registered as a racehorse owner mid-last year and designed his own racing silks. 3yr old filly Notquitethereyet was sourced as a well-priced, immediate-action prospect by Zarbloodstock to fast-track Vinnie’s first journey to the winner’s enclosure and earn him profit along the way. She ran a promising 3rd, first run in his silks just 6 weeks after purchase (we buy to race not to wait!) earning enough to cover her expenses for the next 2 months or so.

She has been accepted to compete on Saturday in the 2nd race at Turffontein and Lyle Hewitson has been engaged to pilot her homeward. Official racecard is still pending..

2019-03-21 Turffontein race 4 replay : NOTQUITETHEREYET (gate 7) runs a thriller in the 4th race at Turffontein cruising through to hit the front at the 350m and looking to go on for an easy win. She gets tagged late to finish 3rd but what a fantastic performance first run on the Highveld. Congrats to owner Vinnie Patchappen and his team.
