Rhine Maiden (1912–1923) was an American thoroughbred filly racehorse. She was sired by Prince of Wales Stakes winner, Watercress, out of the Golden Garter mare, Gold. Watercress was also the sire of Preakness Stakes winner, Watervale.

Rhine Maiden is best known as just the third filly to ever win the Preakness Stakes. She did it in a time of 1:58 with Douglas Hoffman aboard by 1½ lengths over Half Rock and Runes.

1915 was the year that the filly as Regret won the Kentucky Derby but did not challenge Rhine Maiden in the Preakness. Not since 1915 has more than one of the American Classic Races been won by a filly.

Rhine Maiden died in 1923.
