Maine Chance Farms’ inform stallion Querari, whose progeny have already earned in excess of R3.2 million this season thus far, had another weekend with three more winners across South Africa.
The G1 winning son of Oasis Dream’s first success over the weekend came when his daughter Queen Of Soul ran out a comfortable winner of the first race on Gauteng Chris Gerber Summer Cup day at Turffontein.
Trained by Dorrie Sham, the 3yo Queen Of Soul stayed on gamely to record a three-parts of a length win over 1400 metres. Bred by the Gary Player Stud, Queen Of Soul is out of the Jet Master mare Rush For John.
Querari’s second winner on Saturday came when his progressive 3yo daughter Fleeced flew up late to win by a length and a quarter of 1200m. Bred by Normandy Stud, Fleeced was winning for a second time in a row, and the Justin Snaith trained filly has now won three of only six starts.
The inform sire’s third winner of the weekend came when his 3yo son Querari’s Cowboy got off the mark for trainer Johan Janse Van Vuuren at Hollywoodbets Greyville on Sunday afternoon.
Querari also went close to enjoying feature race success on Saturday, with his G2 Zulu Kingdom Explorer Golden Slipper winning filly Cockney Pride finishing a cracking third in the G2 TAB/Betting World Dingaans. Cockney Pride is one of two Querari daughters entered in the upcoming G1 World Sports Betting Cape Fillies Guineas.
South Africa’s Leading Sire of 2Yos of 2018-2019, Querari has 13 lots on offer at January’s Cape Premier Yearling Sale, including a colt (Lot 10) out of dual G3 Sycamore Sprint winner Kinematic Countess, a three-parts brother (Lot 177) to Ruffian Stakes winner Dagmar, and a colt (Lot 202) out of G2 Southern Cross Stakes winner Fairyinthewoods.
