Book Full Sign Posted For General Nediym
Widden Stud has announced that the book for General Nediym (Nediym-Military Belle, by Without Fear) for the 2008 season is full at a fee of $60,500. "The General has had an outstanding year on the racetrack and in the sale ring with breeders quick to secure bookings to one of the few well proven commercial sires standing at a service fee under $100,000," said Widden principal Antony Thompson. General Nediym is currently equal leading sire of juvenile winners this season with 13 to his credit and the equal leading sire of stakes-winning 2YOs. Among his 5 stakes-winners are Gr2 STC Pago Pago Stakes winner Sidereus (a $210,000 yearling consigned by Baramul Stud at the 2007 Magic Millions Yearling Sale), plus Sienna's Fury, Kert, Taameer and Delta Girl (a $380,000 purchase from the Waikato Stud draft at the 2007 NZB Premier Yearling Sale). Champion First Season Sire in 2002/2003, General Nediym is also running fifth on the general sires list by individual winners with 89 winners of $2.8 million.
