Lideem and Stanley go one-for-one

Having her first start for the Brent Stanley stable, the four-year-old mare Lideem proved a class above her opposition, leading throughout to take out the Hyland Racing Colours Maiden over 1100m on the Geelong Synthetic track on May 17.

Having had an official barrier trial at Cranbourne a few weeks prior, the Nadeem mare (pictured left as a yearling) was untouched to take out that 800m heat by two lengths.

Starting the punters elect based on her recent trial form, the Nathan Stanley-ridden mare jumped away well from an inside gate before being urged along to take the lead.

Untroubled once she settled in front, Lideem was rated well in the lead and as the field rounded the home turn, she kicked clear, holding off all challengers to record victory.

In breaking her maiden, Lideem defeated the Newhaven Park-owned Opt by one-and-a-quarter lengths, with a short head to the third placed Caniwin.

“I actually think she is quite smart and I can't wait till she gets to 1400m and 1600m, stated trainer Brent Stanley after the race.

"She has matured into a nice mare and hopefully she can now make it in town.”

By the Group One Blue Diamond winner Nadeem, out of a half-sister to Group One Golden Slipper winner Prowl and the Group Two Wellington Guineas winner I Rock My World, the residual broodmare value for Lideem is quite good if she can continue on her winning ways.
