Seidnazar Joins Riverdene Roster
Precocious Colonial-bred 3YO sprinting colt Seidnazar (Rory's Jester-Dangerous Seam, by Straight Strike) has joined Wagga Wagga-based Riverdene Stud's 2006 stallion roster. Seidnazar won the Listed St Albans Stakes (1000m) at Moonee Valley & notched 6 stakes-placings in 13 starts for $368,650: highlights included runner-ups in the Gr1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield, Gr2 Maribyrnong Plate (1000m) at Flemington & Listed Debutant Stakes (900m) on debut at Caulfield, plus placings in the Gr2 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens, Gr3 Blue Diamond Prelude (1100m) at Caulfield & Gr3 Dermody Stakes (1000m) at Cheltenham. His acclaimed sire of juveniles Rory's Jester won Australia's premier 2YO sprint, the Gr1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m); & his dam Dangerous Seam was also a high-class 2YO (winning the Listed Maribyrnong Trial Stakes). Their mating has also produced Listed Merson Copper Stakes winner Real Jester (who has since sired this season's Listed Merson Copper Stakes winner Red Pluton). A limited number of shares in Seidnazar have been made available at $8,800 while the new sire will stand his initial season at Riverdene for $6,600.
