Galcador (1947–1970) was a French Thoroughbred racehorse best known for winning England's most prestigious race, the Epsom Derby. Bred and raced by Marcel Boussac, Galcador made only four starts, winning three and finishing second in the Poule d'Essai des Poulains to Tantieme.
Retired to stud, Galcador stood at Boussac's breeding operation from 1951 through 1959. Sold to breeders in Japan for the 1960 season, he stood there until his death in 1970. His offspring met with limited success in racing.
