Corinthian (foaled March 7, 2003 in Kentucky) is an American Thoroughbred racehorse.

He was purchased at the Fasig-Tipton 2004 Saratoga yearling sale for $385,000 by the Centennial Farms racing partnership led by Donald V. Little Sr. of Ipswich, Massachusetts.

Trained by Jimmy Jerkens, Corinthian is best known for winning the 2007 Grade I Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile at Monmouth Park and the 2007 Metropolitan Handicap(Grade I) at Belmont Park. Following that win, he was retired to stud duty at Gainesway Farm, near Lexington, Kentucky. On November 19, 2013, it was announced that Corinthian would be moved to Pin Oak Lane Farm in New Freedom, Pennsylvania and continue standing at stud there.
