PAPILIO
Redoute's Choice - LAFLEUR (Zabeel)

The winner of the Listed South Island Breeders' Stakes Papilio has some of the best bloodlines in the world. She is by Australia's champion stallion Redoute's Choice and her dam, Lafuer, is by New Zealand's champion sire Zabeel. Lafleur was an outstanding filly winning the Group 2 Royal Stakes and Group 2 Sir Tristram Classic as a three-year-old. Papilio is the half-sister to Amaryllis (Red Ransom) winner of the Group 3 Darley Plate. She descends from the great Eight Carat family, which has shaped the face of New Zealand breeding.
