Big race double for Querari

22nd Oct 2018

Maine Chance Farms’ prominent sire Querari has been in prolific form over the past few weeks.
The son of champion sprinter Oasis Dream was responsible for last Sunday’s KZN Fillies Guineas Trial winner Arianos Shadow and enjoyed further success over the past weekend, when Querari was represented by a trio of South African winners.

Querari’s local treble included two eye catching scores from his sons Warfarer and Big Mistake, who lifted the Listed Michaelmas Handicap and WSB Grand Series Consolation respectively.

Big Mistake, one of two smart winners at Turffontein for trainer Ashley Fortune on Saturday, made it win number three when he won the WSB Grand Series Consolation in game fashion. Ridden by Ryan Munger, Big Mistake bested favourite Flying Winger in a thrilling finish to Saturday’s R250 000 contest to win the 1475m race by a head.

The Normandy Stud bred gelding has done precious little wrong since joining the Fortune stable in Gauteng, with Big Mistake yet to run unplaced in three outings. His WSB Grand Series Consolation win took Big Mistake’s earnings to R383 300 and he is not stopping here! Fifth in the 2017 Lanzerac Ready To Run Stakes, Big Mistake had finished second to unbeaten G1 winner Mighty High at his previous start.

One day later, Querari’s son Warfarer came with a late rattle to pick up the Listed Michaelmas Handicap run over 1900m on Greyville’s turf course.
The Lezeanne Forbes trained gelding, who was last at one stage in the R150 000 KZN feature, flew up late to post a one length win over Pierro’s dual stakes winning son Roy Had Enough and G2 Gerald Rosenberg Stakes winner Sabina’s Dynasty.

Bred by Maine Chance Farms, the 5yo Warfarer has now won five and banked R451 525 in prize money.

Querari’s other winner over the weekend came when his daughter Playlist made it two wins from her last three starts when successful at Greyville on Friday night.
Bred and owned by Sabine Plattner, the filly ran on powerfully to score a half length win for jockey Gareth Wright and trainer Andre Nel.

Playlist is a three-parts sister to the Querari sired Sophomore Sprint winner Pleasedtomeetyou, a leading contender for Saturday’s G3 Cape Classic at Kenilworth this weekend.

An own brother to recent Balmoral Handicap hero Sharja Bridge, Querari has four lots on offer at the 2018 Emperors Palace Ready To Run Sale, and a large draft of 12 on the 2018 CTS Ready To Run Sale.
