Kissin' George (foaled 1963 in California) was an American thoroughbred racehorse, considered one of America's premier sprint horses of the late 1960s. Kissin' George was out of a Head Play mare called Nothead. He was sired by Slamruler, a granson of the great Nearco through his son, Nasrullah.

Kissin' George was active for two time periods, 1966-1969 and 1973-74. Although he lost to Dr. Fager on two occasions when stretching beyond his preferred six furlong distance, he was a dominant force at sprint race distances.
