Maine Chance Farms’ exciting young stallion Querari got off to a great start at stud, with his small first crop producing such talented winners as G2 winner Cosmic Light, G1 Thekwini Stakes runner up Melliflora and three other black type performers.
He has a remarkable strike rate of 20 winners from his first 24 South African runners –a stunning achievement by Querari.
Oasis Dream’s G1 winning son has made an equally pleasing start with his second crop, now two-year-olds.
Querari, who is currently South Africa’s 7th leading 2yo sire –despite having been represented by just 8 2yo runners thus far, is the sire of impressive 2yo debut winner Touching, the stakes placed filly Fresh and highly regarded colt Caballo Blanco –a possible contender for the G3 Cape Of Good Hope Nursery.
Lot 144 – a half brother to 2 winners, including stakes performer Silva Hawk, this colt is out of a Jallad half sister to stakes winner and Summer Cup third Rudi Rocks, and his second dam is a G3 winner of five
Lot 159 – this beautifully bred filly, a half sister to 2 winners, is out of an El Prado three parts sister to a stakes winner and from the family of leading US sires Fappiano, Honour and Glory and Quiet American, as well as G1 winning millionaire and hot SA sire Go Deputy
Lot 168 –this colt is a half brother to 3 winners, including a G3 placed juvenile. Out of an Al Mufti half sister to 2 stakes winners, including East Cape star Stormy Appeal, this is the family of G1 Allan Robertson winner Silver Arc and CTS Million Dollar hero Illuminator
Querari’s six yearlings on offer at the National Yearling Sale include a full sister to promising 2yo Cuveo (Lot 84), a half sister to G2 winner Polar Moon (Lot267) and a filly from the family of international G1 winners and champions Alpine Rose, Dance Of Life, and Run The Gauntlet (Lot 279).
