Maine Chance Farms’ promising young sire Querari was represented by a smart first out winner at Durbanville on Saturday.
The Andre Nel trained Quine, bred and owned by Mrs Sabine Plattner, won a maiden plate over 1300m in the style of a filly with a future.
In the process, the sophomore, who is inbred to the great stallion Danzig, provided Querari with his 13th individual first crop winner.
Querari’s feat is made all the more impressive by the fact that he has been represented by just 19 runners and he continues to impress as a young stallion of considerable potential.
The son of Oasis Dream was named the Cape’s Outstanding New Stallion last season following a first crop which included four individual black type performers including the unbeaten G2 The Debutante winner Cosmic Light.
A full brother to Querari, a former G1 Premio Presidente della Repubblica winner and German champion, was knocked down to trainer Roger Varian, acting on behalf of Sheikh Mohammed Obaid, for 500 000 guineas at the recent Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, where yearlings by Querari’s sire Oasis Dream fetched up to 1.1 million guineas.
His sire Oasis Dream has had another superb year, with his sons Goldream and Muhaarar winning no fewer than five G1 races between them and Oasis Dream is just three away from siring 100 stakes winners.
