Maine Chance Farms’ exciting, and in-form, sire Querari had yet another impressive juvenile winner mid-week.
This time, it was the Mike Azzie trained Querari Falcon who made a stunning, winning debut over 1200m at Scottsville’s Wednesday who scored.
Bred by the Botha family, Querari Falcon simply pulled clear to register a facile 1.75 length win over the more experienced Lunar Rush. It was another two and a half lengths away to the well bred third place finisher, and favourite, Anime.
