Flaming Page (foaled 1959 in Ontario) was a Canadian Hall of FameThoroughbred racehorse. Out of the mare Flaring Top, a daughter of the 1937 American Champion Two-Year-Old Colt Menow, she was sired by Bull Page, the 1951 Canadian Horse of the Year and a Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame inductee. Bull Page was a son of the very important Calumet Farm sire Bull Lea.

In 1962, Flaming Page ran second in the Kentucky Oaks to future U.S. Racing Hall of Fame inductee Cicada. In Canada, she was the first filly to win both the Canadian Oaks and the Queen's Plate, and was Canada's leading money-earner in 1962 with $88,075.

As a broodmare

Flaming Page produced only three foals but would have a profound impact on the European racing and breeding industry:

  • Minsky with Northern Dancer, Ireland's champion 2-year-old colt in 1970.

In 1969, Flaming Page suffered difficulties foaling another Northern Dancer colt, which subsequently died. Flaming Page was unable to conceive again and was retired in 1975.
