Maryfield (foaled April 13, 2001 in Ontario) is a retired Hall of Fame and Champion Thoroughbred racehorse.

Trained by Doug O'Neill, she raced for her American owners in the United States. In 2007, Maryfield became only the fourth Canadian-bred horse to ever win a Breeders' Cup race when she captured the Filly & Mare Sprint, hosted that year by Monmouth Park Racetrack. She was voted the 2007 Eclipse Award for American Champion Female Sprint Horse and in 2009 was inducted in the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame.

When Maryfield was sold at auction after her BC win she was retired with a very bad ankle, an injury that will not effect her status as a broodmare, however I am trying to locate where she is living and who owns her now
