Quiet American (April 29, 1986) is an American thoroughbred racehorse foaled in Florida. He was out of the Dr. Fager mare, Demure, by the Grade I winner, Fappiano, son of the great Mr. Prospector.

Purchased for $300,000 as a yearling at the 1997 Fall Fasig-Tipton sales by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Quiet American was very lightly raced at 2 and 3 and didn't come into his own until age 4, where he won both the NYRA Mile and the San Diego Handicap.

Retired to stud at Darley Stud, Quiet American is still producing stakes winners; most famous being Kentucky Derby winner, Real Quiet. Quiet American is also the sire of Star Guitar.
