Priolo (foaled March 17, 1987 in the United States) was a French Thoroughbred racehorse. He was bred and raced by Chryss Goulandris' Ecurie Skymarc Farm. In 1990 he won two Group One races and ran second to Saumarez in the Grand Prix de Paris. Sent to Belmont Park in the United States, he was third behind winner Royal Academy and runnerup, Itsallgreektome in the 1990 Breeders' Cup Mile.

In 1991, Priolo won his third Group One event, capturing the Prix du Moulin de Longchamp.

Retired from racing, in December 1991, Priolo was sent to stand at stud in Ireland. His offspring have met with limited racing success.
