Maine Chance Farms’ promising young stallion Querari had an eye catching debut winner at Fairview on Friday.
Backed down to start a hot 8-10 shot for a maiden juvenile plate over 1000m, the Gavin Smith trained Querari colt Dynamic Speed outclassed his opponents, to run out an easy winner by two and a quarter lengths in the style of a colt with a future.
Bred and owned by Dr Ashley and Mrs Rose Parker, Dynamic Speed is out of the unplaced National Assembly mare Lucy Love – a half sister to no fewer than 11 winners including former G1 Garden Province winner Lyrical Linda (by Jallad).
Clearly a colt who has shown plenty at home, Dynamic Speed is the second winner for his promising first crop sire, whose previous winner was the smart filly Spring Wonder, an entrant in the Gr3 Pretty Polly Stakes next weekend.
Her paternal half brother, Dynamic Speed, in turn, is one of 18 juveniles entered for the Listed East Cape Nursery, to be run at Fairview on April 3rd suggesting that big things are ahead of Querari and his offspring.
To date, Querari has been represented by five first crop runners – two of whom have won and two others having finished in the money.
One of 12 G1 winners for his champion sire Oasis Dream, Querari scored his signature win in the G1 Premio Presidente Della Republicca of 2010, where he accounted for fellow top flight winners Voila Ici, Pressing, Campanologist, and Jakkalberry.
Querari has a three lots on offer at this weekend’s March Yearling Sale, including a filly out of a half sister to G1 winner and sire What A Prospect.
He has a cracking draft of 12 lots on offer at next month’s National Yearling Sale in Germiston. Querari’s NYS offering includes a colt out of five times stakes winner Warrior Maid (Lot 4), a colt from the same family as Elliodor and Spook Express (Lot 15), a half sister to Met third Punta Arenas (Lot 321), and a half brother to Gr1 performer Gitiano (Lot 332).
