Weekend treble for Querari | Cape Breeders Club

Weekend treble for Querari

6th Nov 2017

Maine Chance Farms’ successful resident sire Querari enjoyed a memorable weekend this week when the former G1 winning champion was represented by three winners –in as many racing centres.

Querari’s sire Oasis Dream

The Querari treble got underway when his daughter Pomona picked up her second win from her last three outings at Greyville on Friday night.

Bred and owned by Maine Chance Farms, the Charles Laird trained filly bounded clear to post a 1.75 length win over a mile. A remarkably consistent sort, Pomona has won or placed in all nine of her career outings.

Her G1 winning sire Querari then enjoyed a double one day later, with winners coming at both Kenilworth and Turffontein.
Querari daughters Wedgwood and Rings And Things made it a 1-2 for their sire, when separated by a long neck in a handicap over 1400m at Kenilworth on Saturday.
It was Wedgwood who prevailed, for trainer Geoff Woodruff, and she has now three wins to her name.

Bred by Maine Chance Farms, Wedgwood was a R325 000 buy from the 2014 Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale.

Inthepurplerain became the third daughter of Querari to win this weekend, when the 3yo romped to post a two length maiden win over 1400m for trainer Candace Dawson.
Bred by The Alchemy, Inthepurplerain was a R150 000 buy from the 2016 CTS Johannesburg Ready To Run Sale.


Querari is also the sire of recent G2 Joburg Spring Challenge winner Wonderwall, who was a courageous and front running fourth in Saturday’s Emperors Palace Ready To Run Cup.
Third in last season’s G1 SA Nursery, Wonderwall has won or placed in all six outings with his earnings already in excess of R740 000.

A half-brother to G3 winning new Cape sire Quasillo and to 2017 G2 Canadian Stakes winner Quidura, Querari is also responsible for G1 Thekwini Stakes winner Querari Falcon and fellow graded winners Cosmic Light and Kangaroo Jack.

His 3 lots on this month’s CTS Ready To Run Sale include a colt out of a daughter of G2 Drill Hall Stakes winner Rambo’s Jewel (Lot 117), and a filly whose four time winning dam is a sister in blood to triple G1 winner and Equus Champion Capetown Noir (Lot55).
