Aloma's Ruler (1979–2003) was an American Thoroughbred racehorse who won the second leg of the 1982 U.S. Triple Crown series.

Aloma's Ruler was purchased for $92,000 at the 1981 Hialeah, Florida sale of two-year-olds by Baltimore, Maryland businessman Nathan "Red" Scherr (1923–2003) who was advised by trainer, John Lenzini, Jr.

Sent to the track at age two, Aloma's Ruler showed little, winning only one stakes race. At age three in 1982, he blossomed into one of the top Thoroughbreds in American racing. On January 27 he won the Bahamas Stakes at Hialeah Park Race Track, the May 8th Withers Stakes at Aqueduct Racetrack, then, in the biggest win of his career, he defeated prohibitive favorite Linkage to win the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course. He disappointed in the Belmont Stakes, finishing ninth but in July, Aloma's Ruler returned to form with a win in the Jersey Derby at Monmouth Park. He came out of a second-place finish in the August 21st Travers Stakes at Saratoga Race Course with an ankle injury that ended his racing career.

Retired to stud, Aloma's Ruler met with limited success. From his eighteen crops, he sired six stakes winners.

Aloma's Ruler died from an apparent heart attack at age twenty-four on June 21, 2003 at an Illinois farm. [1]
