Fantastic Light (foaled February 13, 1996) is an American-bred Thoroughbred racehorse who raced out of the United Kingdom. At age 3, the colt won three minor races but at age 4 came into his own, winning several important international contests. At age 5, Fantastic Light won three major races in Ireland and England including the Prince of Wales's Stakes and the Irish Champion Stakes plus the 2001 Breeders' Cup Turf.

Retired at the end of the 2001 racing season, Fantastic Light stands at stud at Dalham Hall Stud in Newmarket, England. He is sire of Scintillo, winner of the Winter Derby, the Gran Criterium (Group 1) and the Grand Prix de Chantilly (Group 2).
