Noverre (foaled May 2, 1998 in Kentucky) is a Thoroughbred racehorse. Bred by Darley Stud Management Inc. and raced by a sister operation, Godolphin Racing, he was sired by Rahy and out of the mare Danseur Fabuleux, a daughter of the great Northern Dancer who was also the dam of 1991 European Horse of the Year, Arazi.
Trained at age two by David Loder, Noverre won two listed races in France and two Group 2 events in England. Sent to the United States, the colt finished eleventh on dirt in the 2000 Breeders' Cup Juvenile, hosted that year by Churchill Downs. At age three, Noverre's owners turned his race conditioning over to Saeed bin Suroor. For him, Noverre finished first in the 2001 Poule d'Essai des Poulains at Longchamp Racecourse in Paris but was subsequently disqualified after testing positive for the banned substance Methylprednisolone.  He went on to win the Group 1 Sussex Stakes at Goodwood Racecourse in Chichester, England. That year he also had second-place finishes in the UAE 2000 Guineas in Dubai and in England's St. James's Palace and Queen Elizabeth II Stakes.
Noverre was retired to stand at stud beginning in the 2003 season at his owner's Kildangan Stud in County Kildare, Ireland. In 2008, he was sold to breeders in India to stand at Sohna Stud Farm near Delhi.  From his offspring, Noverre's best runner to date has been a 2006 colt named Le Havre who in 2009 won the Group 1 French Derby at Chantilly Racecourse.
