The 2017/18 season has once again highlighted Nadeem’s ability to sire a good horse. New stakes winners Sir Nate and Karavali have maintained his ratio of stakes winners to runners above the “serious” sire’s benchmark of 5% stakes winners to runners while his winners to runners percentage sits at an outstanding 65%.
Nadeem’s oldest crop NZ four-year-olds include the stakes winning and Group 1 placed juvenile Sir Nate, Wanganui Guineas runner-up Perfect Harmonee, Listed runner-up Redeem The Dream and St Leger Trial winner Shared Secrets while in Victoria, the exciting LA bred Princeton Spirit has won four of his five career starts.
Nadeem’s NZ results 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 his impressive list of 15 stakes winners are Group 1 Golden Shaheen and dual Hong Kong group winner Sterling City, international Group 2 winners Mujaarib and Tajmeel and 2017 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 a welcome addition to the domestic stallion ranks, particularly for discerning breeders looking to add black-type to their mares breeding record. And at a 2018 service fee of $6,500 plus GST, Nadeem represents outstanding value.
