Daylami (born April 20, 1994) is a Thoroughbred Champion racehorse.

A Northern Dancer outcross, Daylami raced for most of his career by Godolphin Racing. He is an Emirates Airline World Champion and winner of seven Group 1 races. Three times in 1999 he defeated arch rival Royal Anthem including in the Breeders' Cup Turf at Gulfstream Park in Florida. His 1999 performances earned him the United States' Eclipse Award for Outstanding Male Turf Horse and was voted the Cartier Racing Award's European Horse of the Year.

Through a joint ownership between his breeder, the Aga Khan IV, and Darley Stud, he stood as a sire at the Aga Khan's Gilltown Stud near Kilcullen, Ireland until 2006 when he was sent to his Haras de Bonneval stud at Le Mesnil-Mauger in France.

At the end of November 2006, Daylami was sold to Riethuiskrael Stud of South Africa owned by Altus Joubert, Chairman of the South Africa Thoroughbred Breeders' Association Chairman.

In 2010 Daylami joined Coolagown Stud in Ireland. link title

Among Daylami's progeny is Grey Swallow, winner of the 2004 Irish Derby and 2005 Tattersalls Gold Cup.
