Fiorente X Choilaine

Sire: Fiorente

Dam: Choilaine

Colour: Bay

Gender: Filly

Age: 2 year old

Foaled: Aug 3rd, 2015

Country: Australia

Horse Description:

Like fellow Melbourne Cup winners Protectionist and Almandin, Fiorente is a son of the late champion German stallion Monsun that had the class to score multiple weight-for-age wins in Australia.

Fiorente was a Group 2 winner in England in the Princess Of Wales’s Stakes before showing his versatility to win the Group 2 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes over 1600m as well as the Group 1 Australian Cup over the championship distance of 2000m.

Fiorente had the class to finish third to Shamus Award and Happy Trails in the Cox Plate and competed among the top echelons of racehorses in two hemispheres, proving super competitive with Nathaniel, All Too Hard, Atlantic Jewel and Dundeel.

Trainers Mathew Ellerton and Simon Zahra know this filly’s family well having prepared her two half-siblings Schilleraine and Second Base to wins.

Second Base was an 1100m winner for the stable while Schilleraine is displayed staying promise with his maiden win over 1736m, underlying the versatility of the dam’s progeny.
