Idun (1955-?) was an American Thoroughbred Champion racehorse who won U.S. Champion 2 and 3-year-old filly honors.

Sired by Royal Charger, a son of the very important sire Nearco, Idun was owned by Mrs. Charles Ulrick Bay, wife of a United States Ambassador to Norway. The filly was ridden by future Hall of Fame jockey Bill Hartack and trained by another future Hall of Famer, Sherrill W. Ward who would later condition Forego.
