Caracortado (foaled May 7, 2007 in California) is an American Thoroughbred racehorse. His sire, Cat Dreams, is a son of the extremely influential stallion Storm Cat. His dam, Mons Venus, is by Maria's Mon, the American Champion Two-Year-Old Male Horse of 1995 who won the Sanford Stakes, the Champagne Stakes, and the Belmont Futurity Stakes. Maria's Mon also sired Kentucky Derby winners Monarchos and Super Saver.

Caracortado is owned by Blahut Racing, LLC & Lo Hi Racing, and is trained by Mike Machowsky.

Robert B. Lewis Stakes

In the 2010 Robert B. Lewis Stakes Caracortado firmly established himself as among the better three-year-old colts in North America when he drew off to a strong 1 3/4 length score over highly regarded sophomores Dave In Dixie, American Lion, and Tiz Chrome. With this win, Caracrotado moved his career record to an unblemished five wins in as many starts. It was then announced he would point to the Santa Anita Derby for his final Kentucky Derby prep.
