Dedicate (foaled 1952 in Kentucky) was an American Champion Thoroughbred racehorse. Bred by the renowned Claiborne Farm, he was raced by Mrs. Jan Burke. Hissire was the important Princequillo, a two-time Leading sire in North America and a seven-time Leading broodmare sire in North America.

Trained by Mrs. Burke's father, future U.S. Racing Hall of Fame inductee G. Carey Winfrey, racing at age two to four Dedicate won several important races including the Brooklyn and Whitney Handicaps. However, at age five he was a major force in American racing, and his 1957 performances earned him American Champion Older Male Horse honors plus Horse of The Year from the TRA to tie with Bold Ruler who was selected by the DRF poll.

Retired to stud, Dedicate sired a number of winners including Smart Deb, the 1962 Co-Champion 2-Two-Year-Old Filly and the multiple stakes-winning filly, Natashka.
