Peonís sire Nikotin 2:07.5, bay, 1993, did not perform well in the Bars Prize competition of 1997, taking only 3rd prize.

Fleita belonged to the line of Fabulaís female offspring, who foaled such outstanding stallions as Fortunato 2:04.7 (Bars Prize winner of 1977) and Fagot 2:02.3. Fabulaís female descendants also foaled the mare Floristika (2:03.8), who won the Bars Prize in Moscow and Ramenskoye in 2012, and set records at the age of two, three, and four.
