With his oldest New Zealand bred crop three-year-olds, 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” sires 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 two-year-olds can be credited for some exciting performances as three-year-olds in 2016/17.
Keep a tab on the stakesplaced Redeem The Dream, Group 1 fourth place-getter Karavali and St Leger Trial winner Shared Secrets who have shown in light campaigns as three-year-olds this season an ability to add to their sires tally of 13 stakeswinners next season.
Debut winners Exceptional and Xcessory, and dual winner Heisenberg, recently sold to Hong Kong, are other exiting three-year-old winners by Nadeem to date in 2016/17.
Such a good start here won’t have come as a surprise to enthusiasts who have followed the career of the Group 1 winning two-year-old son of Redoute’s Choice since he retired to stud in Australia in 2007. Included among Nadeem’s 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’s million dollar race winner Target In Sight.
At a 2017 service fee of $6,500 plus GST, Nadeem represents outstanding value, particularly for discerning breeders looking to add black-type to their mares breeding record.
