Weekend five timer for Querari

13th Aug 2018

Maine Chance Farms’ increasingly successful G1 winner Querari enjoyed a magnificent weekend when the son of red hot stallion Oasis Dream was represented by no fewer than five individual winners.
The Querari five timer was headed by a very impressive debut winner in the form of Pleasedtomeetyou who romped home over 1000m at Kenilworth on Saturday. The Andre Nel trained 3yo was most impressive when scoring a three length debut win over the well bred Trippi’s Express, and the La Plaisance bred Pleasedtomeetyou, who is out of the Fort Wood mare Plaisir de Fete, looks another smart sort for his sire.

Pleasedtomeetyou was one of two winners at Kenilworth on Saturday for Querari, whose daughter Angel’s Trumpet impressed when making all to beat smart male rivals in a pinnacle stakes over 1000m. The four-year-old filly, trained by champion trainer Justin Snaith and ridden by Richard Fourie, took her tally to three wins with a 1.25 length win over older male rival Olympian, with the likes of millionaire Tevez among those well beaten by Angel’s Trumpet.

Querari had just two runners at Scottsville yesterday but he went close to enjoying 100% strike rate with son Calvary running out an easy 3.75 length maiden winner in the first race, and daughter Bonnie Dawn a close up second, beaten a neck, in the fifth race.

Querari’s other winners over the weekend included Mauritian scorer Ouzo and Inexhaustible- who shed his maiden, at the second time of asking, over 1160m at Turffontein for trainer Paul Peter and jockey Keagan De Melo.

A half-brother to high class performers Quasillo and Quidura, Querari is a son of champion sprinter Oasis Dream, a sire who has been enjoying a magnificent spell in 2018.
Not only is Oasis Dream the sire of recent G1 Prix Maurice de Gheest winner Polydream and brilliant G2 Duchess Of Cambridge Stakes Pretty Pollyanna, but the son of Green Desert is also the sire of the very in-form stallion Showcasing.


The latter made headlines on Sunday when his July Stakes winning son Advertise downed a high class field of 2yos to win the G1 Keeneland Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh.

Querari, whose stars last season included the likes of Monks Hood, Wonderwall and Pinnacle Peak, has 11 lots on offer at this week’s National Two Year Old Sale.
