Life Is Sweet (foaled March 5, 2005 in Kentucky) is an American Thoroughbred racehorse highly successful at racing who in early 2009 was thought to be a threat to her unbeaten stablemate, Zenyatta. She was bred by her owners Pam & Martin Wygod. Sired by Storm Cat, she is out of the Kris S. mare, Sweet Life, who is also the dam of champion juvenile filly, Sweet Catomine.

Conditioned for racing by John Shirreffs, Life Is Sweet won some of California's major stakes races in 2009 and notably earned a second to Zenyatta in the Grade II Milady Handicap, and a third in the Hollywood Gold Cup.

On November 6, 2009, Life Is Sweet came into her own with a win in the Breeders' Cup Ladies Classic.

On March 13, 2010, Life is sweet was preparing for a run in Dubai World Cup; however, afterwords she suffered muscle cramps and owner Marty Wygod made the decision to retire her. She will be bred to Smart Strike.http://www.thoroughbredtimes.com/racing-news/2010/March/13/Life-Is-Sweet-retired-will-be-bred-to-Smart-Strike.aspx
