The first Group 1 winning son of Champion sire Redoute’s Choice to stand in New Zealand, Nadeem was a A$700,000 Sydney Easter Sale purchase who rewarded his owners Shadwell Stud with a Group 3 win in the Maribyrnong Plate at only his second start in November of his two-year-old year. He then put up a stunning performance to beat Miss Finland and Wonderful World in Victoria’s juvenile showpiece, the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes.
Nadeem's already has an impressive 12 individual stakes winners. A multiple stakeswinner in Hong Kong, Sterling City defeated a high class field of international sprinters to land the Group 1 Dubai Golden Shaheen at the Dubai World Cup meeting in 2014.Sterling City's prizemoney currently total's over $10,500,000. Other international stakeswinners by Nadeem include the South African Group 2 winners Tajmeel, and Mujaarib, owned by Sheik Mohammed Bin Khalifa Al Maktoum, winner of the Gr.2 Peermont Emperors Palace Charity Mile. Happy Galaxy from the Hawkes Stable won the 1200m Gr.2 ATC Expressway Stakes, while the wonderfully consistent black-type mare Sharnee Rose won the Group 3 Golden Pendant & Angst Stakes having placed third in the Group 1 One Thousand Guineas and fourth in the Group.1 Australian Oaks. She retired with over Aus$500,000 in prizemoney.
Target In Sight has won twice in stakes company defeating some quality Sydney and Melbourne sprinters, while the three-year-old Spanish Bay won the Group 2 1400m Singapore Classic in 2015, a race won by the likes of Better Than Ever, Super Easy and War Affair, and then came out and ran third in the Group 1 1600m Singapore Guineas.
Nadeem’s second to last crop of Australian conceived progeny are three-year-olds in the current season and the likes of the stakeswinning filly Savoureux, the undefeated Lucky Can Be and the very fast Brisbane galloper Ice Bucket look sure to build on their sires black-type record.
Nadeem’s stakeswinners to runners ratio of 6.4% is outstanding and when you compare him to other leading sire sons of Redoute’s Choice. Snitzel’s ratio is 6.7% and stands at $88,000 and Stratum is 5.4% with a service fee of $33,000. Not bad company and incredible value considering Nadeem’s 2015 service fee of $6,500 plus GST.
Nadeem’s dam Candide was a dual Group 1 winner by the Champion Sire and Broodmare Sire Sound Reason, with the high class classic influences Oncidium and Agricola also featuring in her pedigree. A full sister to the multiple stakes producing mare Sound Lover, Candide’s daughter Aulide is the dam of the Group 1 winner Marju Snip and the Group 2 winners Do Ra Mi and Unique Jewellery, while a grand-daughter left last season’s AJC Derby placegetter Kingdoms.

Nadeem (Redoute’s Choice-Candide by Sound Reason)
With just a single duplication of Northern Dancer, Nadeem offers breeders a range of pedigree options. O’Reilly and Towkay mares replicate the highly successful Redoutes Choice/Last Tycoon cross which on its own accord has a stakeswinners to foals ratio approaching a staggering 30%. Snitzel’s (Redoute’s Choice) Group 1 winning son Wandjinna is from a Last Tyccon mare. Sir Tristram line mares have produced great results when bred to the Redoutes Choice sireline while Centaine line mares capitalise on the successful nick with Sound Reason.
For such a young stallion it’s encouraging to see some distinct pedigree traits already developing with the Group 1 winning son of Redoute’s Choice.
Remarkably eight of Nadeem’s 12 individual stakeswinners hail from Never Bend line mares, including International Group 1 winning sprinter Sterling City. The key to the success of this cross looks to be duplication of the half brothers Bold Reason (sire of Sound Reason) and Never Bend.
Sterling City’s dam is by a son of Never Bend’s champion French stallion Riverman as is Nadeem’s Group 2 winner Mujaarib, while his other South African Group 2 winner Tajmeel carries two female lines of Riverman. Nadeem’s Australian group winners Happy Galaxy and Sharnee Rose are both descendants of Never Bend’s Champion son Mill Reef.
New Zealand has a wealth of Never Bend blood. Mares by the likes of High Chaparral, O’Reilly, Pentire, Thorn Park, Towkay and Volksraad make ideal cohorts for breeders looking to capitalize on this proven nick with Nadeem.
As a son of Redoute’s Choice, Nadeem offers breeders the opportunity to line breed to Best In Show. Nadeem’s dual stakeswinning son Target In Sight is line bred to the hugely influential mare through his damsire Xaar, whose dam in turn is a daughter of Best In Show. Mares by sons of Last Tycoon such as O’Reilly and Towkay give breeders a ‘double whammy’, duplicating Last In Show and picking up a line of Never Bend through Mill Reef. Mares by Helmsman, Kingmaker and Thorn Park also feature Best In Show.
Sound Reason, the dam sire of Nadeem, was a sound, tough and classy sprinting son of Never Bend’s half brother Bold Reason, who passed on all of those traits in becoming an outstandingly versatile stallion. His 12 group 1 winners as a broodmare stallion were achieved across a wide selection of bloodlines. He had a lot of success with the stallions Centaine and O’Reilly.
