Lalun (1952-not found) was an American Thoroughbred filly racehorse and successful broodmare. Owned and bred by Harry Guggenheim, she was trained by Loyd Gentry, Jr. and under jockey Henry Moreno notably won the 1955 Kentucky Oaks and Beldame Stakes.

As a broodmare, Lalun produced the 1962 U.S. Champion 2-Yr-Old Colt Male Colt Never Bend who in turn sired the great Mill Reef and Riverman. As well, Lalun was the dam of Bold Reason who won the 1971 American and Hollywood Derbys and the Travers Stakes.
