Prove It (foaled 1957 in California) was an American Thoroughbred racehorse. Bred and raced by Rex C. Ellsworth, he was sired by Endeavour, an Argentine-bred who also sired Corn Husker, Porterhouse and Pretense. Out of the mare, Time To Khal, damsire Khaled was a multiple stakes winner in England for the Aga Khan III who was purchased by Ellsworth and brought to stand at his Chino, California stud ranch. Khaled was the sire of U.S. Racing Hall of Fame inductee, Swaps.

Prove It had a highly successful racing career that included wins in the prestigious Santa Anita Handicap (1961) and Hollywood Gold Cup (1962), plus he set an Arlington Park track record in the 1962 Benjamin F. Lindheimer Handicap. Prove It was retired to stud where as a sire, his offspring met with modest success in racing. Through daughter, Proof Requested, he was the damsire of 1983 Preakness Stakes winner, Deputed Testamony.
