Bounding Home (foaled 1941 in Virginia) was an American Thoroughbred racehorse best known as the upset winner of the 1944 Belmont Stakes that deprived Pensive of the U.S. Triple Crown.

Bred by foodstuffs manufacturer William Ziegler, Jr. at his Hickory Tree Stable in Middleburg, Virginia, Bounding Home was conditioned for racing by Matt Brady. At age three he had his best year in racing, winning the Belmont Stakes and notably earning second place in three important handicaps, the Jerome, the Peter Pan, and the Lawrence Realization plus a third in the Travers Stakes to winner and 1944 Champion 3-year-old colt, By Jimminy.

An avid yachtsman, William Ziegler, Jr. named his 53-foot racing schooner for the horse.
