Lovely athletic filly by National Defence from the family of GROUP ONE TWO YEAR OLD El Dorado Dreaming.

This fillies dam won just shy of $100000 on the track and this is her first foal. Nicodame is out of the Zabeel mare Zolletta which makes her a half to the dams of El Dorado Dreaming and Sea Battle (GRP 2 winner and second in the GRP 1 Emirates Stakes).

National Defence has started out his stud career with a couple of impressive winners, with the Wesley Ward Twilight Gleaming a very impressive winner in the US and possibly on her way to Royal Ascot. The son of Invincible Spirit was Champion Two yr old Colt in France.

X Rays are available and a report is attached.
