Storm Queen was a notable Australian thoroughbred racehorse.

A bay daughter of Coronation Boy from the mare Storm Gleam, she was foaled in 1963 and was trained throughout her career by Bart Cummings.

Her racetrack debut ended in defeat, but it was followed by eight successive wins in her two-year-old season including victory in the 1966 STC Golden Slipper Stakes.[1]

Retired in 1967 following an unplaced run in the AJC Doncaster Handicap she was unable to match her deeds on the racetrack as a breeding mare.
