Offlee Wild (foaled April 5, 2000 in Kentucky) is an American thoroughbred stallion racehorse. Bred by Dorothy A. Matz, he was sired by Wild Again, out of the mare, Alvear, whose sire, Seattle Slew, was a Triple Crown winner and inducted into National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame.

Offlee Wild bears a striking resemblance to his sire, Wild Again, and was purchased as a yearling at the Keeneland Sales for $325,000 by AZ Azalea Stables, a syndicate stable headed by Lansdon Robbins III.

At three, he defeated Funny Cide in his first race around two turns in the Holy Bull Stakes, scoring a Beyer Speed Figure of 99. Unfortunately a virus affected his schedule and he placed third behind Peace Rules in the Blue Grass Stakes in his only other Kentucky Derby prep.

At four, the stallion again met and beat Funny Cide in the Massachusetts Handicap, running a 110 Beyer Speed Figure.

At five he lost by a neck in the John Campbell Handicapin his first start since the Mass Cap but came back in the Excelsior Breeders’ Cup Handicap under a hand ride by Edgar Prado to win by over 8 lengths. In July Offlee Wild took the Grade 1 Suburban Handicap over Pollard's Vision and Evening Attire in a time of 2:00 2/5 for 10 furlongs.

Retirement

Retired in August, 2005 due to injury, Offlee Wild stands at Darley Stud in Jonabell, Kentucky, for a fee of $7500 per live foal. Offlee Wild was the leading freshman sire of 2009.
