Mack Lobell (born in the United States in 1984) is a brown racing trotter by Mystic Park out of Matina Hanover by Speedy Count.

He won $3,917,594 during his career. He was elected Harness Horse of the Year in 1987 and 1988. Among his many stakes victories were the Yonkers Trot, the Hambletonian, the Elitloppet (twice), the Breeders Crown events for three-year-old and for four-year-old trotters, and the Campionato Europeo. His best time of 1:52.1 for the mile was taken as a three-year-old in a race in Springfield, Illinois; this time set the world record for trotters.

Early on, Mack Lobell was managed by Chuck Sylvester, and almost always had John D Campbell as his driver, but after his performances in Europe at the age of four he was sold to Swedish trainer and breeder John-Eric Magnusson. In Sweden Mack Lobell continued his successful career, although the primary intention behind bringing the horse to Sweden was for breeding purposes.
