Declan's Moon (foaled 2002 in Maryland) is a retired American Champion Thoroughbred racehorse. Bred by Brice Ridgely, Jay Em Ess Stable purchased Declan's Moon for $125,000 at the 2003 Fasig-Tipton Midlantic September yearling sale.
Conditioned for racing by Ron Ellis, Declan's Moon won his debut as a two-year-old on July 31, 2004 at California's Del Mar Racetrack. He followed this with wins in the Grade II Del Mar Futurity and the Grade III Hollywood Prevue Stakes. The colt ended the season with a win in the Grade I Hollywood Futurity. His undefeated season resulted in Declan's Moon being voted the Eclipse Award as the American Champion Two-Year-Old of 2004.
Declan's Moon began his three-year-old season with a win in the March 5, 2005 Santa Catalina Stakes and was the early favorite for the Kentucky Derby until a knee injury sidelined him for several months. Back in training in the fall, Declan's Moon sustained a fracture at the top of his cannon bone that kept him out of racing until July 2006 when he returned to finish a solid second in a non-stakes event at Hollywood Park Racetrack. However, the colt was beaten again in his ensuing four starts, finishing last in three of them. He would not win another race until July 2007 when he captured a six furlong minor event at Hollywood Park. This would be his last win and he was retired with a record of one win in his last thirteen starts.
Declan's Moon was retired to Merryland Farm in Bel Air, Maryland.
