Flagship Arrowfield Stud stallion & 2-time former Australian Champion Sire Redoute's Choice (Danehill-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) added a group success (& 89th individual stakes-winner world-wide) when daughter Florentina (Redoute's Choice-Celebria, by Peintre Celebre) scored a 1-length victory against the males in the $125,000 Gr3 Gold Coast Guineas (1200m) for 3YOs. Florentina (ridden by Glyn Schofield for trainer David Payne) defeated fellow filly Punch On (Tiger Hill-School Blue, by Geiger Counter) & the gelding Double Impact (Mossman-Cornish Moss, by Barathea). Florentina took her record to 2 wins & 4 placings (including 2011's Gr2 Tea Rose Stakes over 1500m at Rosehill, Gr2 Furious Stakes over 1400m at Warwick Farm & Gr3 Silver Shadow Stakes over 1200m at Warwick Farm) from 8 starts for $239,200 earnings.
