Noble's Promise, (foaled April 13, 2007 in Kentucky) is an American Thoroughbred racehorse. He was bred by Charles Kidder (D.V.M.) and his son Ben in a partnership with Dr. Nancy Cole (D.V.M.). He is by Gainesway Farm stallion Cuvee, who was a three-time graded stakes winner at age 2, and owned by Chasing Dreams Racing, a horse syndicate of 24 based in Kentucky. Cuvee never won beyond a mile but was sired by Carson City a son of Mr. Prospector and damsire of the very important Barbaro. He is out of the Clever Trick mare, The Devil's Trick. He clocked a time of 1:43.12 for the Grade 1 Breeders' Futurity Stakes. This win gave him an automatic berth in the $2 million 2009 Breeders' Cup Juvenile at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California. Noble's Promise remained in California after the race and was entered in the $750,000 CashCall Futurity at Hollywood Park Racetrack, where he finished second to Lookin at Lucky.

Noble's Promise was purchased as a weanling for $10,000 at the 2007 yearling Keeneland Sales.[citation needed]He is described as having a nice stalking style.[citation needed]

Noble's Promise made his three-year-old debut at Oaklawn Park in the Rebel Stakes, a prep race that was won by Smarty Jones and Afleet Alex during their Kentucky Derby prep campaigns.

Noble's Promise became a millionaire in the 2011 Aristides Breeders' Cup Stakes, beating a field of Graded stakes winners, including Capt. Candyman Can, Atta Boy Roy, and the 2010 winner, Riley Tucker
