Christmas Past (April 15, 1979 - December 13, 2008) was an American Thoroughbred Champion racehorse bred and raced by Cynthia Phipps of the famous Phipps racing family. She was out of the mare Yule Log, a daughter of eight-time leading sire in North America and U.S. Racing Hall of Fame inductee. Her sire was the 1964 French Champion Two-Year-Old Colt, Grey Dawn.
Conditioned for racing by Angel Penna, Jr., as a three-year-old in 1982, Christmas Past won five stakes races for fillies including the Coaching Club American Oaks by six lengths. Her performances earned her 1982 American Champion Three-Year-Old Filly honors.
At age four, Christmas Past defeated her male counterparts in winning the February 26 Grade 1 Gulfstream Park Handicap in Florida. It marked only the second time in the thirty-seven year history of the race that a filly had won. A week later her owner decided to retire her from racing saying it was because of a variety of minor physical ailments that could hamper her running especially when she would be required to compete under heavy handicap weights that could increase the risk of a serious injury. 
At age twenty-nine, Christmas Past was humanely euthanized on December 13, 2008 due to complications from the infirmities of old age. She was buried in the Marchmont Cemetery at Claiborne Farm.
