Second Stakes Winner for Nadee
Mark Smith - Saturday, 3 September 2011

Progressive 3yo colt Specter credited trainer Anthony Freedman with his fist city winner and young stallion Nadeem with his second stakes-winner in Saturday's Listed Henry Bucks Best Dressed Stakes (1400m) at Flemington.

The winner reversed the decision on the luckless Chase The Rainbow (Dash For Cash) who defeated Specter at Geelong at his most recent start. The consistent Secret Hill's contributed to a successful day for her sire Starcraft by fighting on strongly for third.

There was drama before the start when favourite That's The One (Snippetson) was scratched when he lashed out in the barriers.

Freedman was non committal on the Specter's immediate goal.

"We have always liked him," Freedman said.

"We'll just see where he fits in," Freedman said. "These horses are short of those Sydney horses but we will probably give him his chance.

"Everyone aims high and most end up low.

"He's a trouble-free straightforward horse. He got good luck to day and the barrier probably helped but he took the runs and finished it off."

Specter (pictured as a yearling) was an $80,000 purchase from the Makybe draft at the 2010 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling sale.

He is the third foal of the imported Daylami mare Woman In White (FR), a placegetter at Goodwood, whose dam Nicer (Pennine Walk) won the 1993 Irish One Thousand Guineas (G1).

Specter's unraced 2yo sister was purchased by Big Red Farm at this year's Inglis Premier Yearling sale for $210,000 and has been sent to race in Japan.

Woman In White has a yearling colt by Commands and was covered by Wanted last season.

Specter is the second stakes-winner for Darley Stud's Blue Diamond Stakes (G1) hero Nadeem (Redoute's Choice) who's multiple Group 3 winning daughter Triple asset was recently crown Tasmania's 2yo Filly Of The Year.

Nadeem (pictured left) will cover the current season at Darley Kelvinside where his fee has been set at $22,000 (inc GST).
