Gold For Nadeem Lass

Mar 22, 2015

A mare who just doesn't know how to run a bad race, Nadeem Lass was rewarded for her consistency with a strong finishing victory in one of the feature events at Bendigo on Saturday - the $110,000 Gold Bracelet.

Eased back to fourth after jumping well, Nadeem Lass enjoyed a nice trail behind the speed and, after hooking off heels early in the straight, was very strong over the very final stages of the race - at the 50m mark really letting go!

Gathering in her rivals and putting her nose out right on the line, Nadeem Lass showed plenty of heart winning the third race of her 32 start career, one that has also seem her record 12 placings.

"Not many horses win over $320,000 winning just three races," said the stable's Don Healy, "but she has been such a consistent mare and she deserved that win."

"She ended up in the death-seat last start (when third in the Group Three Frances Tressady Stakes) but Max (Matthew Allen) gave her a great ride today - she was in the perfect position and she was just too good."

Healy noted that the stable are always delighted to win races for Nadeem Lass' owners, a group he describes as "very loyal to the stable, great supporters of Robbie."

Raced by Gleneagles Stud (manager Kevan Wacey), GLR Racing (manager Guy Donnelley), Joy McGregor, Oliver Kysela, Mark Rodda, Ian Cannon, Damien Pitt, Bob Baumann, Graeme Curtain and Barbara Phelan, Nadeem Lass was bred by Three Bridges Thoroughbreds and purchased at the 2011 Inglis Melbourne Premier for $80,000.

By Redoute's Choice's Blue Diamond Stakes winner Nadeem, Nadeem Lass is the third live foal produced by the dual city winning Danzero mare Danrego, a half-sister to the multiple Group One winner Eremein.
