Mike Azzie coined the phrase “Querari The Ferrari” when Spring Wonder (bred by Maine Chance Farms) became her sire’s first winner, writes John Freeman in his eNews this week.
Mike’s phrase has caught on in our office and has enjoyed good airtime this week with 3 more winners in the last four days.
Appropriately one of these new winners Melliflora (Maine Chance) is also trained by Michael, so we were happy to give him credit for the war cry once again.
Rose and Ashley Parker’s one-eyed speedster Dynamic Speed won again last Friday and now has 2 wins from 4 starts with stakes places in both of his other runs.
The other two-time winner in Querari’s arsenal is Archar Head’s Champery who won her first two starts and is making a comeback from an injury she sustained in the listed Perfect Promise Stakes in her 3rd start. “Wait ‘till she wins the million dollar” such is the confidence of the filly’s owner.
A record nineteen new sires retired to stud in 2011 – it’s going to be interesting to see how they develop.
We took over the management of Querari as our only stallion in that group before he had his first runner. Our research gave us the confidence to take him on and we are very happy we did. As they say in the classics – watch this space!
