His oldest New Zealand bred crop were 3YO’s at the conclusion of the 2016/17 season and local breeders and owners are beginning to see first-hand the talent that saw Nadeem sire 13 individual stakeswinners from his five Australian conceived crops and attain the “serious” sire’s benchmark of 5.8% stakeswinners to runners and 67% winners to runners.
Despite generally not been regarded in Australia as a progenitor of juvenile precocity, Nadeem’s first crop of NZ 2YO’s made an exciting start last season and that has translated into some excellent performances as 3YO’s in 2016/17.
Stakesplaced Redeem The Dream, Group 1 fourth place-getter Karavali and St Leger Trial winner Shared Secrets who have each shown in light campaigns as 3YO’s an ability to add to their sire’s tally of 13 stakeswinners next season. Debut winners Exceptional and Xcessory, dual winners Heisenberg (recently sold to Hong Kong) and the well regarded Tinkalicious are other promising 3YO winners by Nadeem to date in 2016/17.
Nadeem’s NZ results won’t have come as a surprise to enthusiasts who have followed the career of the Group 1 winning 2YO son of Redoute’s Choice since he retired to stud in Australia in 2007. Included among his impressive list of stakeswinners are Group 1 Golden Shaheen and dual Hong Kong group winner Sterling City, international Group 2 winners Mujaarib and Tajmeel and 2017 $1 Million dollar race winner Target In Sight.
An 80% winners to runners ratio and the likes of the afore mentioned multiple Group winner Sterling City have ensured Nadeem a strong Hong Kong following while dual stakeswinner Spanish Bay, stakesplaced Bale Star and 2017 two-year-old winner and Group 2 fourth place getter Yaya Papaya are just some of his leading Singaporean performers.
Nadeem followed up a 2016 Karaka Sales series where he averaged $55,800 including a $200,000 purchase by Paul Moroney, with another strong performance in 2017, averaging $47,000.
With an Australian and international siring record rivalled by the top echelon of established New Zealand stallions, Nadeem is the perfect choice for the discerning breeder looking to add black-type to their mares breeding record. At a 2017 service fee of $6,500 plus GST, Nadeem also represents outstanding value..
