Eye of the Leopard (foaled March 2, 2006 in Ontario) is a Canadian thoroughbred racehorse who, on June 21, 2009, won Canada's most prestigious race, the Queen's Plate.[1]

Called a "big goof" by his trainer, Eye of the Leopard was a late developer and did not race at age two. In early 2009 he suffered from a respiratory infection that further hampered his development. He made an unimpressive first start in April 2009 at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, Kentucky, finishing third to last. He was then sent to his homebase at Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto where he won his first race on May 10. He followed up with a win in the May 31 Plate Trial Stakes before capturing the 150th running of the Queen's Plate.

On July 12, 2009, the colt finished 3rd in the 74th Prince of Wales Stakes. Drawing chute 5, he rallied the pacesetters, but finished third to number 2 Milwaukee Appeal (who placed second) and to the winner, number 3, Gallant. Under 1:56.74
