A triumvirate of Queensland studs along with Patinak Farm has agreed to stand General Nediym's son Sidereus at Oaklands Stud.
Sidereus has been bought by Oaklands Stud in partnership with the McAlpine family’s Eureka Stud and Hoss Heinrich’s Darlington Stud with Patinack retaining breeding rights.
It is understood Sidereous is the first Group winning son of Dual Group 1 winner General Nediym to go to stud.
Siderous, which was bought by Patinak Farm as a yearling for $210,000, was trained by Anthony Cummings.
“Sidereus was a very strong horse with tremendous speed,” Cummings said.
Sidereus rose to Group 2 success winning the Pago Pago Stakes an event this year won by Black Caviar’s brother All Too Hard.
Oaklands Stud’s Neville Stewart said Sidereus would be a welcome new addition to the sire ranks in Queensland.
“Sidereus is a cracking individual,” Stewart noted. “He was a highly admired yearling and was purchased by a renowned judge and trainer.”
“He is built in the same mould as his outstanding sire General Nediym.”
“His pedigree should suit most mare owners as it is totally free of Danehill blood. His dam hails from the family of one of the world’s great pedigrees – being a member of the Eight Carat family,” Stewart added.
Sidereus is one of two stakes winners from the 100 per cent winner producer Hootenanny – a lightly raced daughter of Best Western and half-sister to handy middle distance performer Come on Cugat.
He hails from the family of Group One winning stars Octagonal, Kaapstad, Bonanova, Telesto, Marquise, Diamond Lover, Mouawad and Fraternity.
His sire General Nediym was one of the most popular sires in the country with Sidereus being one of his almost 500 winners and 39 individual stakes winners. His stars include Regimental Gal, Warhorse, Military Rose, Night War and Ichihara.
Sidereus will stand his debut season at Oaklands Stud this spring at a fee of $6,600 (inc GST).
