Miesque's Approval (foaled March 3, 1999 in Florida) is an American Thoroughbred racehorse who won the 2006 Breeders' Cup Mile [1] and was voted that year's American Champion Male Turf Horse.[2] He was bred and raced by Charlotte Weber's Live Oak Plantation and trained by Marty Wolfson.[3]

Retired early into the 2007 racing season, Miesque’s Approval was sold to Kwazulu Natal Breeders Club and the Scott Brothers's Highdown Stud in Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa. Under the sales agreement, Live Oak Stud retained Northern Hemisphere breeding rights to the horse.[4]
