Graff

Sire: Star Witness
Dam: Dinkum Diamond (Keep The Faith)
Wins: 1st San Domenico (Gr3) – 1st Caulfield Sprint (Gr2) – 1st Clarendon Stakes (L) – 2nd Run To The Rose (Gr2) – 3rd Golden Rose (Gr1) – 4th Newmarket Handicap (Gr1) – 4th Black Caviar Lightning (Gr1)
Service Fee: $13,200

“If you think The Autumns Sun’s win in the Group 1 Golden Rose was impressive – watch Graff’s run, simply brilliant!"

– Luke Murrell, Australian Bloodstock

“The way he finished in both the Newmarket and the Lightning really proves that he was a proper Group 1 Weight For Age colt”

– Mick Malone

"He's the best colt I've had anything to do with"

– Kris Lees’

A Group 2 winning, Group 1 placed, undefeated 2 year old!
 
Graff is by the same sire as the exciting young stallion in Star Turn, with remarkably similar credentials!
 
Graff was ever impressive at 3, winning the stallion making San Domenico Stakes, (the last 5 winners being Anders, Exceedance, Star Turn and Pariah). One of Graff’s key attributes was his finish in the Group 1 Golden Rose, only a length behind the colt of his generation The Autumn Sun. Also at 3, he ran 5th in The Everest and was beaten under at length in both The Lightning and The Newmarket Group 1 sprints at Flemington – demonstrating serious precocity at 2 and again at 3.
 
During Graff’s race career – his earnings reached $1.3 million, he displayed genuine colonial speed and precocity.
 
Graff’s explosive turn of foot subsequently saw him defeat 15 individual Group 1 winners of 34 Group races…
 
Graff represents an exceptional pedigree as an outcross, which enables him to unleash the most prolific sire lines in Australia. To match the strengths of his pedigree, he’s a ripping type, allowing Graff to present the physical requirements that Australian breeders demand.
