Victorian (1925–1934) was an American Thoroughbred racehorse that was bred in Kentucky.[1] He was bred and raced by Harry P. Whitney and is best known as the winner of the 1928 American Classic, the Preakness Stakes in which he was ridden by future Hall of Fame jockey Sonny Workman.

When his racing career ended, Victorian was reasonably successful as a sire. His best runners included 1937 Junior Champion Stakes winner Can't Wait, 1936 Santa Anita Derby winner He Did and Woodward Stakes winner, Valedictorian. Victorian was the broodmare sire of 1948 Kentucky Oaks winner Challe Anne.[4]
