At Rosehill Gardens, former Blue Gum Lodge stallion Istidaad (Chief´s Crown-Mazzei Mood, by Roberto) added a black-type success when 6YO bay gelding Dee I Cee (Istidaad-Smashed All Night, by Night Shift) resumed with a surprise win at odds of 40-1 in the $125,000 Listed Premiers Cup (1900m) for 3YO+, defeating Classic Uniform & Centre Pivot. Dee I Cee, who cost just $1,000 at the 2012 NZ Bloodstock National Weanling Sale, improved his record to 3 wins and 7 placings (including the Gr1 New Zealand Derby & Gr3 Newcastle Cup) from 16 starts for $237,392 in earnings. This was a most encouraging return by the New Zealand-bred Dee I Cee who is being aimed at the $750,000 Gr1 The Metropolitan (2400m) at Royal Randwick on 30 September. "He will probably follow the same path as last year to the Newcastle Cup and Metropolitan and hopefully he can improve on what he did last year," co-trainer Adrian Bott told Sky Racing.
