New Providence (1956–1981) is a Thoroughbred racehorse who in 1959 became the first official winner of the Canadian Triple Crown.

Retired to stud duty at owner E. P. Taylor's Windfields Farm in Oshawa, Ontario, he met with reasonable success and is best known as the damsire of European Champion Storm Bird who in turn sired Storm Cat.

New Providence died in 1981 and is buried at Windfields Farm.
