Madelia (foaled 1974) was a French Thoroughbred Champion filly racehorse who retired undefeated. Bred and raced by leading French horseman, Daniel Wildenstein, Madelia was conditioned for racing by the Argentine-born and future U. S. Racing Hall of Fame trainer, Angel Penna, Sr.

Madelia made her racing debut on April 18, 1977 with a win in a 1600 meter (1 mile) event at the Saint-Cloud Racecourse. She then won the Poule d'Essai des Pouliches and the Prix Saint-Alary at Longchamp Racecourse and, in her final start, at Chantilly Racecourse, won the Classic Prix de Diane.

She retired undefeated to serve as a broodmare for her owner, between 1980 and 1991 Madelia produced ten foals. Although she was bred to top sires such as Northern Dancer, Spectacular Bid, Affirmed, and Blushing Groom, her offspring met with limited racing success. [1]
