Kip Deville (May 3, 2003 - June 11, 2010) is an American Thoroughbred racehorse whose most important win came at age four in the 2007 Breeders' Cup Mile. Bred in Oklahoma by Dr. Warren Center, Kip Deville was an Eclipse Award finalist for American Champion Male Turf Horse in 2007.

In 2008, Kip Deville won his second straight edition of the Maker's Mark Mile Stakes at Keeneland Race Course. Though he was not scheduled to race again until early September, when he would be sent to Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto, Canada to compete in the Woodbine Mile, a race in which he ran second in 2007. Dutrow decided to try the Poker Handicap. Kip Deville won. He returned to defend his title in the Breeders' Cup Mile at Santa Anita Park in October, 2008. In a thrilling finish, he came in second.

On August 8, 2008, the Oklahoma Thoroughbred Association named Kip Deville its Horse of the Year for 2007. He also won the Older Male and Turf Runner awards. Kip Deville is now the all-time leading accredited Oklahoma-bred runner. Klodike Kaytie (now deceased), the dam of Kip Deville, was named broodmare of the year.

Kip Deville, who won the 2007 NetJets Breeders' Cup Mile (gr. IT), finished second in the 2008 Breeders' Cup Mile. He captured the 2008 Maker's Mark MIle Stakes (gr. IT) and the Poker Handicap (gr. IIIT).

Again, on August 15, 2009, the Oklahoma Thoroughbred Association named Kip Deville as Horse of the Year and best turf runner and older male.

On December 10, 2009, Kip Deville is suffering from laminitis in both front feet and has been given a 20 percent chance to survive.

Kip Deville's owners report that he is recovering from laminitis and has "improved significantly" in a January 27, 2010 article.

March 2, 2010, Bloodhorse reports that Kip Deville is ready to leave the Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital to continue his convalescence in a layup facility.

June 11, 2010, Bloodhorse announced that Kip Deville was euthanized after suffering severe setbacks.
