Keep the Vibe going in SA

At the time of writing the South African cricket team had made it to their first World Cup T20 final and that particular match is on Saturday 29 June, well before the so far disappointing racehorse Vibe SA is due to run and hopefully win, Race 1 at the Vaal on Thursday 4 July.

So, can Vibe SA keep the good vibes rolling?

The Tony Peter-trained runner has been runner-up in five of his six starts so far and has been beaten at some very short prices.

In his latest start at Greyville, he was backed all the way down to odds of 4-10 and lost that race by a head.

In his five runner-up defeats the Just As Well gelding was beaten by 0.50 lengths or less. It seems more of a case of bad luck than his lack of willingness to fight at the finish.

In this particular race, it will be the first time a work rider gets a chance to ride him.

Chama Mabaya has a good record in these work-rider series races and Vibe SA should win.

Peter could also be leading in the winner of Race 2, a Maiden Juvenile Plate for fillies over 1700m.

Hat’s Queen, a daughter of Hat Puntano, has run two decent races so far and was unlucky not win her second outing. She had to avoid a loose horse in the race and was only beaten 0.40 lengths.

The slight increase in distance to 1700m should not trouble her and she will be ridden by stable jockey Calvin Habib.
