Striking FIORENTE COLT from real Running Family
FIORENTE burst onto the Australian racing scene with a brilliant debut second placing to Green Moon in the 2012 G1 MELBOURNE CUP. Resuming in the Autumn of 2013 he not only set in play a sequence of performances that netted him the title of CHAMPION STAYER 2013 – 2014 but also displayed a natural precocity that allowed him to take third in the G1 ALL AGED STAKES at 1400m at his resumption and victory in the G2 DATO TAN CHIN NAM STAKES at a mile. Revenge followed with a mighty win in the 2013 G1 MELBOURNE CUP, and the icing was added with an equally devastating turn of foot to land the 2014 G1 AUSTRALIAN CUP.
The most salient point in unravelling the pedigree of FIORENTE is his sire, the dominant MONSUN. A Goliath in world sire rankings, the German bred son of Konigsstuhl boasts a MASSIVE 79.7% W/R, 112 STAKES WINNERS, 65 GROUP WINNERS and TOTAL PROGENY EARNINGS of $83 MILLION. What is amazing about Monsun, and truly indicative of the athleticism of his progeny, is that he sires winners from 1000m to 3200m. And he has sired 3 OF THE PAST 4 G1 MELBOURNE CUP WINNERS, with PROTECTIONIST and ALMANDIN following in the hoofprints of FIORENTE. MONSUN is clearly a breed shaping sire of elite, predominantly classic to two mile runners. And there is a hefty prizemoney pot in this distance range in Australasia right now.
The damline of FIORENTE is also laced with black type. Most topical currently is very close relation TOM MELBOURNE, second in the recent G1 EPSOM HANDICAP. The family also traces to G1 YORKSHIRE OAKS WINNER HELLENIC and her equally classy daughter ISLINGTON, CHAMPION 3YO FILLY IN GB IN 2002, G1 WINNING ¾ BROTHER MOUNTAIN HIGH and GERMAN’S CHAMPION OLDER MILER GREEK DANCE.
The distaff line of this colt also boasts serious racetrack currency. From 7-TIME WINNING CHOISIR MARE ELLE CHOISIT, the granddam Miss Detonator is a half-sister to the STAKES PLACED Volcanic Causeway and her half-sister Miss Thunderbolt, dam of G3 WA OAKS WINNER WESTERLY BREEZE, and subsequently dam of STAKES WINNER SIREEZE.
This is very much a family that is, like its third dam, ready to erupt. And coupled with the outlandish sire potential of FIORENTE is worthy of serious consideration.
