Montrose (foaled 1884 in Kentucky) was an American Thoroughbred racehorse that is best remembered for winning the 1887 Kentucky Derby. He was owned by the Labold brothers from Cincinnati, Ohio and was ridden by Isaac Lewis in the Derby. The brothers made $20,000 on Montrose's win in the Derby.
Montrose also won the Morrissey Stakes and Great Western Handicap when he was a four-year old and won the Kearney Stakes run in Saratoga, New York as a five-year old. Montrose is reported to have died at a young age while standing as stud in Ohio.
