Regal Classic (foaled 1985 in Ontario) is a Canadian Champion Thoroughbred racehorse. Bred by Sam-Son Farm, he was by the highly successful sire, Vice Regent and out of Sam-Son Farm's foundation mare, No Class. He was raced in partnership with Vice Regent's owner, Windfields Farm.

Champion Two-Year-Old season

Regal Classic was trained by Olympic Games equestrian Gold Medalist and Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame inductee, Jim Day. Racing at age two, he dominated his opponents, winning every major stakes race for his age group. Sent to California for the 1987 Breeders' Cup Juvenile at Hollywood Park Racetrack, Regal Classic was in 11th place after a quarter mile then moved up to seventh at the half before getting boxed in on the far turn. But, under jockey Dave Penna the colt made it through on the inside rail and came on with a strong stretch drive to pass race favorite Tejano and finish second to winner, Success Express. His performances in 1987 earned Regal Classic the Sovereign Award as Canadian Champion 2-Yr-Old-Colt.

At Three

Regal Classic's arch rival was another Sam-Son Farm colt sired by Vice Regent named Regal Intention. Regal Classic had defeated him at age two in winning the important Coronation Futurity Stakes and in 1988, the three-year-old Regal Classic beat him again in the Prince of Wales Stakes and the Marine Stakes.

Sent south to compete in the United States Triple Crown series, Regal Classic ran third in the Blue Grass Stakes prep, fifth in the Kentucky Derby, and sixth in the Preakness Stakes. He returned to Canada for the Canadian Triple Crown and he won the Plate Trial Stakes prep but finished second to Regal Intention in Canada's most prestigious race, the Queen's Plate. The two reversed positions in the Prince of Wales Stakes with Regal Classic earning the win. In the fall of 1988, Regal Classic finished second to Ballindaggin on the grass in the Molson Export Challenge Stakes.

Regal Classic returned to racing at age four in 1989. His best results were a win of the Eclipse Handicap at Woodbine in Toronto and a second in the Ben Ali Handicap at Keeneland in Kentucky.

Retired to stud duty, Regal Classic sired stakes winners Inish Glora, One Way Love, Classic Stamp, and Canadian Classic winners Regal Discovery and Stephanotis, as well as the Australian millionaire runner, Regal Roller. After standing at McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds, LLC in Saratoga Springs, New York for several years, Regal Classic was pensioned after the 2007 season.
