Quantum King, late rattle to win.

This week’s mover on the 2021 De Grendel Ready To Run Stakes log is Johan Janse Van Vuuren-trained Quantum King (Querari), who returned from a rest to beat Super Agra in a 1200m Handicap at Turffontein last Saturday.

Quantum King (MR94) moves up nine positions to joint second-place on the latest log, and plans are in place for him to contest the R900,000 Ready To Run race over 1400m at Kenilworth on Saturday, 31 October, despite the stable having some doubts over the distance.

Part-owner Justin Vermaak commented: “He is a 1200m horse and he pulls in a race, which is problematic. There was a lot to like about the way he fought to beat Super Agra, but we are concerned about the 1400m. If all goes to plan, however, Quantum King will contest the R2R race – the prize money is good, and he is a decent horse.”

Vermaak pin-hooked Quantum King off the farm at Klawervlei just after his half-brother, Kommetdieding had won the 2020 Farm Sale race in impressive style. Quantum King was originally intended to go to the National Sale, but the pin-hooking opportunity presented itself when the sale was postponed.

The 2021 renewal of the sale takes place on Sunday, 31 October, at Kenilworth, and will follow the R2R Gallops on Friday, 29 October, and the race on Saturday, 30 October.
