Overview

Officiating is the result of a global search undertaken to secure a stallion perfectly suited to Australia’s broodmare population.

The handsome TRIPLE Gr.3 winner boasts a deep and rich pedigree, including being a half-brother to USA Champion 2YO filly Caledonia Road.

Officiating is a complete outcross to Danehill, he is a son of the Eclipse Champion Racehorse and elite sire Blame. The sire of six individual Gr.1 winners and over 14% stakes horses to runners, Blame is now proving to be an influential broodmare sire … also running at over 14% stakes horses to runners including Gr.1 Breeders Cup Juvenile winner Forte and this season’s Gr.2 Todman Stakes winner Switzerland.

This shows just a glimpse of the potential that Officiating offers to Australian breeders.

Officiating is a stallion carefully selected for Queensland breeders given our fast but Danehill line heavy broodmares, specifically focussing on breeders with mares by Spirit of Boom, Better Than Ready and Spill the Beans.

Officiating is an exciting prospect, and we are happy to share that excitement with a number of ways that you can invest into his future and be in a position like those breeders who understood the international pedigree of Brave Smash’s early days.
