Lot 58 - Sommersonne x Querari

Classically bred Querari filly’s champion connections

Prominent sire Querari, who looks on course to be named South Africa’s Leading Sire of 2YOs for 2021-2022, has an excellent record as a sire of high-class fillies. Among Querari top daughters are Gr.1 Thekwini Stakes queen Querari Falcon, fellow graded stakes winning two-year-olds Cockney Pride, Cosmic Light, Galla Vanting and Maryah, as well as the likes of Caya Coco, Mill Princess, and the top-class Supreme Quest. The latter took her earnings to over R600 000 when romping home to land this season’s Gr.3 Umzimkhulu Stakes by nearly a length and a half, with Supreme Quest having ran third, to subsequent Wilgerbosdrift Triple Tiara winner Rain In Holland, in last season’s Gr.1 Thekwini Stakes.


Gr.1 Winner – Sommerlied

Querari, whose speedy daughter Champery is the dam of this season’s G1 WSB Cape Fillies Guineas winner Chansonette, is also responsible for this season smart three-year-old filly Homely Girl -who ran third to the aforementioned Chansonette in the Cape Fillies Guineas. Boland Stud will be offering an exceptionally well bred daughter of this top-class stallion at the upcoming KZN Yearling Sale. The filly in question is out of a winning Silvano half-sister to Gr.1 SA Fillies Sprint winner Sommerlied and she is thus bred on the same Silvano/Querari cross as stakes winners Cosmic Light, Wonderwall, Luna Wish, Homely Girl, Dagmar and Joking.

Silvano has hit a rich vein of form as a broodmare sire and he also rates as damsire of recent Listed World Sports Betting East Cape Derby winner Chollima and the very exciting two-year-old Ekoria. This filly’s granddam Sommermarchen is a half-sister to Italian champion Scoubidou. Sommermarchen is herself a direct descendant of the mighty Schwarzgold, one of the most important broodmares in Germany’s history. Winner of both the German Derby and Oaks of her year, Schwarzgold is the ancestress of numerous top-class horses all over the world, with this list including Epsom Derby winner Slip Anchor, Breeders’ Cup Mile winning champion Steinlen, Arc winner Sagace, Irish Derby winner Zagreb and the top-class sprinter Hello Youmzain.
