Afternoon Deelites (foaled February 28, 1992) is an American Thoroughbred racehorse.
The horse was born in West Virginia, sired by Wood Memorial Stakes winner Private Terms, out of the mare Intimate Girl, whose sire was the 1978 Canadian Champion Two-Year-Old Colt Medaille d'Or, a son of the legendary Secretariat.
Afternoon Deelites won several Graded stakes races including two Grade 1 events. In 1994 he won the Hollywood Futurity in stakes record time for a mile and a sixteenth that still stands as at the end of 2012. In 1995, three-year-old Afternoon Deelites was narrowly beaten in the Santa Anita Derby and went on the run eighth in that year's Kentucky Derby.
Afternoon Deelites did stallion duty at Airdrie Stud in Kentucky before being moved to a Clear Creek Stud breeding farm in Louisiana. He was the sire of 23 graded stakes winners; one of his offspring, Popcorn Deelites, became known for roles in motion pictures, especially as Seabiscuit in the 2003 film of the same name.
