Ridgewood Pearl (1992-2003) was an Irish-based Thoroughbred racehorse who in 1995 won four Group/Grade 1 races in four different countries including over male horses in the Breeders' Cup Mile at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York.

The filly was bred by Sean Couglan and raced by his wife, Anne.

Ridgewood Pearl was retired to broodmare duty and produced five foals before dying in 2003 as a result of hemorrhaging after producing a dead foal.
