The 2022 Great British Stallion Showcase was launched by Great British Racing International (GBRI) and the Thoroughbred Breeders' Association (TBA). The online platform, which welcomed over 10,000 visitors last spring, is a digital tool to support the TBA National Hunt Stallion Showcase at Goffs UK's January Sale on Tuesday and the TBA Flat Stallion Parade at the Tattersalls February Sale on Thursday, Feb. 3.

The website features a selection of Britain's first-, second- and third-season Flat sires and all-age National Hunt sires. Photos and videos are available to view, while there are also audio clips from stud managers, pedigrees, race records and more. In 2022, after a new link-up with Weatherbys, users can also view more in-depth information about the stallions listed, such as annual sales averages and star progeny for those stallions who have offspring of racing age. It is also now possible to browse stallions by stud.

Grace Skelton, who stands Grade 1 sire Dink (Fr) (Poliglote {GB}) at Alne Park Stud in Warwickshire, said, “We were eager to be part of the Great British Stallion Showcase again this year. It's a great initiative and a really good platform for British breeders to promote their stallions. With Dink being new to the British breeding scene, the ability to upload video and other content is invaluable.”
