Round Pond (foaled May 21, 2002) is a retired American Thoroughbred racehorse bred in Kentucky by Trudy McCaffery & John Toffan. The bay filly is the daughter of Awesome Again out of the mare Gift of Dance. Owned by Rick Porter's Fox Hill Farms, Round Pond was trained by Michael R. Matz.

Of her important wins, at age three Round Pond won the Acorn Stakes and at age four, won the 2006 Breeders' Cup Distaff over Happy Ticket and Balleto (Who actually finished fourth but was moved up to third via DQ).

Round Pond was retired to Fox Hill Farms in April 2007. At that November's Fasig-Tipton sale, Darley Stud purchased Round Pond for $5.75 million.
