Nadeem on Bull Run
Following last weekend’s results which yielded three stakes placegetters, including a Group 1 third, the bull run of Nadeem (Redoute’s Choice-Candide by Sound Reason) continued this week in Australia, highlighted by another success for promising filly Our Harmony (Nadeem-Pantenny by Canny Lad).
Our Harmony who came from last at the turn to win over 1000m at the feature Victorian meeting on Wednesday, was registering her third win in just six starts. The David Brideoake bred and trained filly joins a host of promising three-year-old fillies this season by Nadeem, whose 12 individual stakeswinners include the healthy balance of seven males to five females.
In Adelaide on Saturday, Redeem Bounty (Nadeem-Sparkling Bounty by Celestial Bounty) appreciated the better track conditions to win over 1400m.
LA broodmare Rivertaine had a week to remember in Australia. Rapidus (Darci Brahma-Rivertaine by Centaine) made it a personal double for the week when he won over 2365m in New South Wales on Friday, while Saturday saw a fine performance by her promising staying son Shotover River (Savabeel-Rivertaine by Centaine) to lump 59kgs to success over 1800m in Queensland.
IT'S ALL ABOUT NADEEM
Nadeem kicked Sam’s birthday weekend off in good style with Spanish Bay running a courageous 3rd in the G1 Singapore Guineas followed by Target in Sight running 2nd in the Listed Sprint at Scone and Nadeems Lass running 3rd in the SAJC Proud Miss Stakes. He also produced 3 other winners on the day in Australia.
The drum roll for Towkay shows no signs of abating. He’s had two more individual winners over the past couple of days including Arzak (Towkay-Roseario by Pentire), bred by Robyn Horton and raced by Robyn’s estate, who won fresh-up over 1400m at Waipa.
Per Incanto (Street Cry-Pappa Reale by Indian Ridge) had a great result at this week’s National Weanling Sale when his only colt in the catalogue, from the Machiavellian mare La Serenissime, sold for $52,500 to Lyndhurst Farm.
Honours for top price amongst our draft at the Sale went to the Azamour-Madam Butterfly colt that we sold on behalf of Sue Harty and the C T McKay Trust. A strong, correct type, the colt eventually sold to for $23,000 to NZB as agent.
