Querari brother wins on Champions Day

21st Oct 2018

Maine Chance Farms’ highly successful sire Querari is a full-brother to the talented four-year-old Sharja Bridge.

The latter picked up his second career win when landing the Balmoral Handicap on Champions Day at Ascot on Saturday.
Trained by Roger Varian, the Oasis Dream colt scored a thrilling, last gasp win in the one mile Balmoral when running on strongly under James Doyle to score a three parts of a length win in the £250 000 contest.

The winning trainer commented after the win, “I spent seven furlongs of that race swearing! I did not think we were going to get a run. Sharja Bridge is a talented horse and I have always thought a lot of him. He has run some good races in defeat this year. It was a shame that Andrea couldn’t ride and I’m sure he’ll be sat at home upset that he couldn’t ride. However, he’s had a great season. Well done to James Doyle who gave the horse a great ride.”

Sharja Bridge and Querari share their Listed Premio Archidama runner up dam Quetena (by Acatenango) with G3 Bavarian Classic winner Quasillo and 2018 G2 Woodford Reserve Ballston Spa heroine Quidura.


Quetena herself is a daughter of champion and German 1000 Guineas winner Quebrada.

Querari, whose four-year-old son Big Mistake captured the WSB Grand Series Consolation at Turffontein on Saturday, has some very exciting 3yos representing him this season.
They include unbeaten Sophomore Sprint hero Pleasedtomeetyou, Ruffian Stakes winner Dagmar, and impressive recent KZN Fillies Guineas Trial winner Arianos Shadow.

The son of sprint champion Oasis Dream has four lots on offer at next month’s Emperors Palace Ready To Run Sale, and a further 12 two-year-olds on sale at the same month’s CTS Ready To Run Sale.
