Inside Information (foaled May 23, 1991 in Kentucky) is an American Hall of Fame and Champion Thoroughbred filly racehorse.

She was a homebred owned by Ogden Mills Phipps and trained by Hall of Fame trainer "Shug" McGaughey. Inside Information had an outstanding race record of 14 wins in 17 starts. Among her accomplishments was winning the Acorn Stakes (Grade 1) at Belmont Park, the Ashland Stakes at Keeneland Race Course, the Molly Pitcher Handicap at Monmouth Park, the Ruffian Handicap (Grade 1), the Spinster Stakes (Grade 1). The most impressive of all of her laurels was winning the 1995 Breeders' Cup Distaff (Grade 1) at Belmont Park by a Breeders' Cup record margin of victory of over 13 lengths. This race turned out to be the filly's last race of her career.

As a brood mare, Inside Information has produced the Eclipse Award Champion Three Year Old Filly in 2005, Smuggler. Some of her other foals were wobblers and never made it to the race track.

Inside Information was named American Champion Older Female Horse in 1995. In 2008, Inside Information was inducted into the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame, the ultimate accomplishment and honor for any Thoroughbred.
