Oxo was a British thoroughbred racehorse noted for winning the 1959 Grand National.

Oxo was a bay gelding bred in Dorset by A. C. Wyatt. An eight year-old owned by Mr Jack Biggs and trained by Willie Stephenson in Royston, Hertfordshire, Oxo was ridden in the National by Michael Scudamore.[1] Starting as third favourite at 8/1, Oxo fought it out for the lead with Wyndburgh only winning, after fighting all the way to the finish, by a length and a half.[2][3]
