Maine Chance Farms’ resident sire Querari looks to have a really classy daughter on his hands in the form of Querari Falcon.
The latter, who won last season’s G1 Thekwini Stakes, made it three wins from just four outings when easily accounting for talented four-year-old, and 2015 G3 Joshua Doore/ Russells Fillies Mile winner Negroamaro by two and three quarter lengths at Turffontein on Tuesday.
Querari Falcon, who was bred by the Botha family, simply outclassed favourite and multiple G1 performer Negroamaro to land a graduation plate over 1600m in fetching style and she looks a likely classic contender for this season.
Owned by Adriaan and Rika Van Vuuren, Querari Falcon was an R90 000 buy from last year’s CTS August Two-Year-Old Sale and Tuesday’s win took her earnings to over R500 000.
Her G1 winning sire Querari has made a sensational start to the 2016-2017 season with his other notable winners including G3 Spring Spree Stakes hero Kangaroo Jack –who has won five of his nine outings to date and who has already earned over R630 000 in prize money.
The champion son of Oasis Dream will be represented by three lots at October’s CTS Ready To Run Sale Presented by Lanzerac Hotel & Spa:
Lot 40 – a half brother to 2 winners, this colt (bred like G2 winner Cosmic Light) is out of a winning Silvano half sister to 2 black type performers, and this is the outstanding family responsible for Arc hero Suave Dancer, top sires and broodmare sires Habitat and Northfields, and current high class Australian performer Hartnell –who recently won the G2 Chelmsford Stakes by 7.75 lengths!
