Victorian (1925–1934) was an American Thoroughbred racehorse that was bred in Kentucky. He was bred and raced by Harry P. Whitney and is best known as the winner of the 1928 Preakness Stakes in which he was ridden by future Hall of Fame jockey Sonny Workman. In 1930, he also won the inaugural Agua Caliente Handicap in Tijuana, Mexico, then the world’s richest race.
When his racing career ended, Victorian was reasonably successful as a sire. His best runners included 1937 Junior Champion Stakes winner Can't Wait, and the 1936 Santa Anita Derby winner He Did. Victorian was the broodmare sire of 1948 Kentucky Oaks winner Challe Anne. Victorian's stud career was cut short when he died on July 30, 1934 from an intestinal obstruction while standing at Silas B. Mason's Duntreath Farm in Lexington, Kentucky.
