Roman Line (foaled 1959) was an American Thoroughbred racehorse. Trained by Tennessee Wright, the colt won the 1962 Derby Trial Stakes by six lengths at Churchill Downs[1] then in U.S. Triple Crown series finished second by a neck in record time to Decidedly in the Kentucky Derby and third to Greek Money in the Preakness Stakes.

Roman Line's racing career was cut short by a training injury at Monmouth Park Racetrack on June 11, 1962.[2] Retired to stud duty he met with reasonable success as the sire of a number of race/stakes winners.[3]
