By one of the classiest Melbourne Cup winners of recent times out of a talented race mare from a terrific local family, this imposing colt ticks all the boxes.

Fiorente is of course best remembered for his dominant victory over Red Cadeaux in the 2013 Melbourne Cup, a race in which the year before he had finished a gallant second to Green Moon.
But he was no ‘one race’ horse, also taking out the Gr.2 Feehan Stakes, the Gr.2 St George Stakes and the Gr.1 Australian Cup - as well as finishing in the placings in the Gr.1 W.S Cox Plate... he was undoubtedly one of the best gallopers of the 2013/14 season.

Retiring to stud as the winner of six of his 20 starts and over $6.2 million in stakes, Fiorente has proven very popular with broodmare owners and he is doing the job well with his 119 winners including eight stakes winners including last year's Gr.2 Moonee Valley Cup winner Lunar Flare, Gr.2 Moonee Valley Vase winner Stars Of Carrum, the Gr.2 Autumn Stakes winner Hawkshot and the Gr.3 SA Fillies Classic winner Moor Gait.

The latter - as well as Fiorente's Listed winners Cousin Ivan, Baronova and Power Scheme - are out of Danehill line mares whilst Hawkshot has that great stallion as his second dam sire.

Whilst this colt is out of a mare by one of Danehill's finest sons, the dual Gr.1 winning Champion Sire Exceed And Excel. And what a great job he is doing as a broodmare sire, his daughters already producing 66 stakes winners - ten of whom have been successful at the elite level including the triple Gr.1 winner Alizee and the Epsom Derby hero Anthony Van Dyck.

This colt is out of the classy and consistent race mare Always Discreet, a triple city winning sprinter who split the Gr.1 fillies Lights Of Heaven and Absolutely when a brave second in the Gr.2 Moonee Valley Classic.

The winner of over $215,000 in stakes, Always Discreet has made an encouraging start to her stud career with two of her first three runners being winners whilst on the back of good trial form her two-year-old Thoroughlydiscreet contested a VOBIS feature at debut, not having much luck.

Always Discreet is one of the eight winners (from nine foals to race) produced by the stakes placed multiple city winning Bluebird mare Oh So Discreet - also dam of the Gr.1 Australasian Oaks winner Maybe Discreet and the Gr.3 Spring Stakes winner Just Discreet.

Oh So Discreet's dam Halo Again was also a ripper on and off the track, winning at Listed level and producing seven winners (from as many named foals) including the Gr.3 winners Be Discreet, She's Discreet and Gilded Angel as well as the Listed winners My Advocator and Oahu.

Also ancestress of the stakes winners I'm Discreet, Serenely Discreet, Very Discreet and Forever Discreet, Halo Again is a half-sister to the dual Group winner Oriental Ruler... what a great family this is!

Purchase price includes agistment to 31.8.2022, Inglis bonus series nomination, breaking in and Insurance for 12 months from purchase date.
