Platter (foaled 1941 in Kentucky) was an American Thoroughbred Champion racehorse. Bred and race by George D. Widener, Jr., and conditioned for racing by future U.S. Racing Hall of Fame trainer Bert Mulholland, in 1943 he won the Pimlico Futury under jockey Conn McCreary and was voted American Champion Two-Year-Old Colt honors.
As a three-year-old, an injury kept Platter out of racing until early May in an allowance race test. The colt did not run in the 1944 Kentucky Derby but finished second to Pensive in the second leg of the U.S. Triple Crown series, the Preakness Stakes. He was injured in the Belmont Stakes and had to be pulled up. 
Retired to stud duty, Platter met with limited succes. Of his limited number of offspring, Platan met with the most success in racing, notably winning the 1953 Lawrence Realization Stakes and 1955 Arlington Handicap.
