Nicconi filly was purchased from highly regarded Maluka Thoroughbreds.

She has plenty of size about her, very well balanced. She has got plenty of strength, huge shoulder a lovely hip on her and also a beautiful nature.

Jeremy Azzopardi (GOT Director) comments: A nicely balanced filly, a really big overstep and a strong hind quarter. This filly really caught my eye at the sales. I have a really big opinion of the sire Nicconi and boasts a good-runners to winners strike rate.

There are 21 individual Group 1 winners bred on the same breeding patterns including, TESTA ROSSA (6 x G1), LEGISLATE (4 x G1) and GOLDIKOVA (14 x G1).

Furthermore, she is the direct descendant to 18 Individual black type winners, 2 at Group 1 level and 5 at Group 3 level.

The Nicconi filly also passed 100% clean on her x-ray, scope and clinical examination.
