Jaime and Mariza Vilela are our Owners of the Week

RA Members Jaime and Mariza were selected as the RA Owners of the Week after winning the R1 million Emperors Palace Charity Mile (Gr 2) at Turffontein over 1600 metres with Hat Puntano (Arg) (owned in partnership with Drakenstein Stud. This was the four year old colt’s second start in South Africa and is believed to be one to watch. He is from the Mike/Adam Azzie stable and was ridden by Grant van Niekerk.

This distance seems to be at the outside limit of his range as most of his victories have been over shorter. However, two runs back he had a runaway victory over this track and trip, beating Ford Country by eight lengths.
