Sales 2020 - October - Lot 374

Querari filly looks an exciting prospect

Boland Stud will be offering two two-year-olds, as agent, at the upcoming Emperors Palace National Two Year Old Sale in November.

The Boland Stud pair include a beautifully bred filly by Querari -whose numerous high-class daughters include the graded stakes winners Cockney Pride, Cosmic Light and Mill Queen, as well as last season’s stakes winning two-year-olds Caya Coco and Herrin.
Consistently among South Africa’s leading sires, Querari has already sired more than 40 stakes horses, with the son of Oasis Dream heading the country’s Leading Sires of 2YOs List in 2018-2019. The filly on offer, bred on the same Querari/Silvano cross as such graded stakes winners as Cosmic Light (Gr.2 The Debutante) and Wonderwall (Gr.2 Joburg Spring Challenge), is out of a top-class daughter of five times South African champion sire Silvano.

Cosmic Light – Gr.2 Winner

Her dam Vino Veritas, herself bred on the same Silvano/Al Mufti cross as Gr.1 winners Al Sahem, Bold Silvano and Kings Gambit, was a high-class racemare who earned over R500 000 during her career. A five time winner up to 2200m, Vino Veritas ran second in the Gr.2 Gerald Rosenberg Stakes and third in the Gr.2 Gold Circle Oaks. Vino Veritas received a major update this year when her talented full-brother, now racing under the name Chefano, captured the Gr.3 The Queen Mother Memorial Cup in Hong Kong and he also finished second, to multiple Hong Kong champion Exultant, in the 2020 Gr.1 Standard Chartered Champions & Chater Cup in May. A three-parts sister to Gr.3 Gold Bowl winner Sunshine Silk, Vino Veritas granddam is Gr.2 Newmarket Turf Club Stakes winner Vino Rosa -a daughter of multiple champion sire Foveros.

Directly descended in female line from the mighty Drohsky, Vino Veritas’s other notable relative include Gr.1 Holiday Inns winner and sire Majestic Crown, champion sprinter Senor Santa and Cape Guineas star Flight Alert.
