QUERARI FILLY LANDS FIRST CAPE JUVENILE RACE

November 27, 2021

Maine Chance Farms’ successful resident sire Querari (pictured above) has made a flying start with his two-year-old runners this season, and the son of Oasis Dream came up with a second juvenile winner, from 4 runners, when his daughter Primula made a winning debut at Kenilworth on Saturday.

In landing Saturday’s Welcome To Cape Racing Maiden Juvenile Plate (900m), Primula won the first two-year-old race run in the Western Cape for 2021-2022.

Trained by Piet Botha, Primula was given a well timed ride by Keanen Steyn, with Steyn bringing his inexperienced filly with a late run which saw her get up to win by a neck, with fellow first-timer We Jamming game in second.

It was another three and three quarter lengths back to third place finisher Share Alike.

Bred by Maine Chance Farms, Primula was a R20 000 buy from the CTS Farm Yearling Sale.

She joins impressive debut winner Fennec Fox as early two-year-old winners for Querari this season.

Primula is out of the unraced Shamardal mare Perija, herself a daughter of the stakes winning Red Ransom mare Paraisa.
