Hyperion (April 18,1930 - December 9,1960) was a Thoroughbred racehorse and a successful sire. Owned by Edward Stanley, 17th Earl of Derby, Hyperion won £29,509 during his career. His victories include the Epsom Derby and St. Leger Stakes.

Lord Derby commissioned equine artist Martin Stainforth to paint a portrait of Hyperion.

An important stallion, he was the leading sire in Great Britain & Ireland six times, counting amongst his progeny Pensive, winner of the 1944 Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes. Hyperion was also the damsire of Nearctic who in turn sired Northern Dancer, the 20th Century's greatest sire.
