Ons Vier Still Learning But "They'll Have Plenty Of Fun"

Trainer Stephen Hill says Ons Vier is a work in progress but like her mum she will be a real racehorse for a good group of mates.

The Star Witness filly was third in a Kembla Grange maiden on debut and lines-up again on her home track in the Collegians Maiden Handicap on Tuesday.

Kim Hayler and Paul Blattman raced Ons Vier’s mum Bitoflight, which was a city winner trained by Hill. Ons Vier reminds him of her in many ways.

“Her mum was a slow maturing type and took her time to get to the races but was a very good horse,” Hill said. “She was a bit small like this filly but had talent and took while to put it together.

“It has been similar with Ons Vier, which was very green and raw at her first start and basically the only thing she did right was running a place. She is still learning her craft but the guys are going to have a lot of fun with her. She is a chance on Tuesday with natural improvement.”

After Bitoflight, Hayler took her over as a breeding proposition and when this filly walked through the Inglis, he and Blattman brought her back For $16,000.

They have added a couple of mates to the syndicate and one of the newcomers, Dutch wife came up with the name: “It means just us four,” Hill said. “Obviously they are hoping she will be up to city grade like mum and with time, I think that will happen.”
