Marchand d'Or (foaled February 21, 2003 in Calvados, France) is a Thoroughbred racehorse who, in 2008, won his third straight Prix Maurice de Gheest at Deauville Racecourse, becoming the first to ever win three consecutive runnings of any French Group 1 race.

Marchand d'Or has finished off the board in all of three of his 2009 starts.

In 2010, the seven year old switched trainer to Mikel Delzangles and has been entered for the sprints at Royal Ascot this summer.
