Florentina brings up 89 SW for Redoute’s Choice

John & Deborah Camilleri‘s lovely home-bred filly Florentina has always looked capable of black type success and today her moment came, in the $125,000 GCTC Gold Coast Guineas 1200m G3.

The David Payne-trained 3YO prevailed by a length to score her second win and become the 89th stakeswinner (17th this season) for her champion sire Redoute’s Choice .

Florentina and her half-brother, G1 winner Gathering, are from the Peintre Celebre mare Celebria, who shares her grand-dam Dancing Show with Redoute’s Choice. It’s also the family of Group 1 winners Umatilla, Hurricane Sky, Platinum Scissors, Al Maher and Manhattan Rain .

Florentina is the third stakes-winner to carry a double cross of Dancing Show, following Shared Reflections and Tranquility. Her full sister made $450,000 at the Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale when secured by Segenhoe Thoroughbreds.

Redoute’s Choice stands the 2012 season at a fee of $137,500 inc. GST.
