Mahan (foaled 1951 in England) was a Thoroughbred racehorse who competed successfully in France for his American owner/breeder Ralph B. Strassburger before being sold to Allie E. Reuben's Hasty House Farm and brought to race in the United States. [1]

Trained by U.S. Racing Hall of Fame inductee trainer Harry Trotsek, Mahan defeated the great Swaps to win the Arch Ward Memorial Stakes at Washington Park Race Track in Chicago.[2]

In 1957, Mahan won the most important race of his career when he captured the Washington, D.C. International Stakes in 1957, a race that was the precursor to the Breeders' Cup.[3]

Mahan was not successful at stud.
