Divine Proportions (born 13 March 2002 in Kentucky) is a champion Thoroughbred race horse and winner of two French classics. She was bred by the Niarchos family. Of this horse it was once said: "Take her to the USA, take her to New Zealand, take her to Japan, and she will beat the lot of them’. Nine times out of ten, she did.[citation needed]

The dam of Divine Proportions is Myth to Reality, a Group 3 winning daughter of Sadler's Wells. Her sire is Kingmambo, whose dam was the dual Breeders' Cup winner Miesque.

During her racing career, ridden by Christophe Lemaire and trained by Pascal Bary, Divine Proportions was the winner of no fewer than five Group 1 races, including the Poule d'Essai des Pouliches and the Prix de Diane. She won nine out of her ten races before being retired after sustaining a tendon injury following her only defeat (4th place) in the Group 1 Prix Jacques Le Marois. Her consistent performances at the highest level led to her being voted the Cartier Three-Year-Old European Champion Filly in 2005, following on from another such high accolade, when in 2004 she was awarded the Cartier's best 2 year old award.

In 2006 Divine Proportions was mated to Champion Sire Giant's Causeway and produced a bay colt. In 2007, she was mated to A.P. Indy
