Lot 116 – Hargraves Bell x Querari
Mystic Spring family continues to blossom
Eugene Freeman’s Boland Stud will be offering a truly blue blooded filly at the 2019 KZN Yearling Sale later this year. Sired by increasingly successful sire Querari, this beautifully bred yearlings is from one of the very best families around –and one which continues to bloom in South Africa.
She is out of the winning Royal Academy mare Hargraves Bell, a three-parts sister to South African Broodmare Of The Year Mystic Spring. The latter produced an impressive seven stakes winners, headed by Equus Champions Bela-Bela and Rabiya. Mystic Spring also produced Gr.2 KRA Guineas winner Secret Captain, and the graded stakes winners, and top class producers Secret Of Victoria (dam of Gr.1 winners All Is Secret and The Secret Is Out) and Spring Lilac (dam of multiple Gr.1 winner Snowdance).
Desecendants of Mystic Spring went close to recording a feature race double when promising 2yos Master Of Illusion (whose dam is a full-sister to Snowdance) and Amy Johnson (out of Mystic Spring’s stakes winning daughter Touch The Sky) ran second in the Gr.3 Godolphin Barb Stakes and won the Listed Perfect Promise Sprint respectively. This family also includes the brilliant Mystiko (ridden by Michael Roberts to victory in the 1991 2000 Guineas), and Fillies Guineas winner Gimme Six.
The filly was sired by Oasis Dream champion and Gr.1 winner Querari, whose growing list of stakes winners include such high class fillies as Querari Falcon (Gr.1 Thekwini Stakes), Melliflora (2nd Gr.1 Thekwini Stakes), Cosmic Light (Gr.2 The Debutante), Solana (East Cape Oaks), and Dagmar (Ruffian Stakes). Royal Academy, damsire of this well bred filly is an exceptional broodmare sire, with his daughters having thrown nearly 200 stakes winners, including such stars as outstanding sire Fastnet Rock and Gr.1 winners Rule Of Law, Finsceal Beo, Dabirsim, Lightning Spear, It’s Somewhat, Coffee Clique and dual Breeders’ Cup winner Stormy Liberal. Royal Academy is also damsire of German 2000 Guineas winner Frozen Power (who was sired by Querari’s own sire Oasis Dream).
This filly has been bred on a similar cross to the one that produced Gr.2 winner Frozen Power!
