Martin "Marty" D. Wolfson (born August 3, 1951 in Washington, D.C.) is an American Thoroughbred racehorse trainer. He embarked on a professional training career in the early 1970s. He is the son of Louis Wolfson, owner of Florida's Harbor View Farm who won the U.S. Triple Crown in 1978 with two-time American Horse of the Year, Affirmed.

Based at Calder Race Course in Miami Gardens, Florida, where he is a Calder Hall of Fame inductee, Marty Wolfson has conditioned horses for his late father as well as the prominent horsepersons such as Mike Pegram, Charlotte Weber, and Edmund Gann, as well as the late John Franks and Fred Hooper.

In 2006, Wolfson earned the most important win of his career when Miesque's Approval captured the Breeders' Cup Mile.
