Impressive weekend double for Querari
27th February 2017
Maine Chance Farms’ exciting young stallion Querari continues to make waves in South Africa, and the G1 winning son of Oasis Dream was at it again this weekend.
Querari was represented by a pair of very smart looking winners over the past few days, with the La Plaisance bred gelding Q The Music waltzing home to break his maiden, at just the second time of asking, by 1.75 lengths over 1200m at Scottsville on Sunday.
The lightly raced Q The Music looks to have the scope to improve from here –and he is yet another promising Querari offspring for the La Plaisance team, who also bred Querari’s very smart looking son Kampala Campari.
The latter has won two of just three outings to date, and is held in high regard by connections.
However, the cherry on the cake for Querari this past weekend was the devastating performance that his 2yo daughter Made In Hollywood put on at Kenilworth on Saturday.
Made In Hollywood (who had finished third first time out to the impressive Snowdance) outclassed her nine rivals to win by six and a quarter lengths –an all but unheard of margin over 1200m!
Bred by Dr Ian Heyns, Made In Hollywood was a R450 000 purchase from last year’s Emperors Palace Select Yearling Sale.
Querari has made a sensational start to his stud career, with his first crop yielding the graded winners Cosmic Light and Kangaroo Jack and his second the G1 Thekwini Stakes winning Querari Falcon.
SA’s latest sire sensation has 3 lots on offer at the Cape Yearling Sale- a colt from the family of G1 Paddock Stakes winner Badger’s Gift (Lot 121), a half-brother to G2 winner Hidden Beauty –from the family of this season’s G1 winner William Longsword (Lot 132), and a filly out of a half-sister to stakes winning sprinter Esterel (Lot 139).
The Italian G1 winner also has 8 yearlings on sale at the March Yearling Sale –including a filly from the family of G1 winning sprinters Fov’s Favourite and Shea Shea (Lot 37), a colt out of a ½ sister to G3 winning 2yo Ethics (Lot 55) and a colt from the family of Irish Derby winner Soldier Of Fortune (Lot 149).
