Rodrigo de Triano (foaled May 27, 1989 in Kentucky) is an English Thoroughbred Champion racehorse. Bred and raced by leading British horseman, Robert Sangster, he was out of the mare Hot Princess and sired by El Gran Senor, a sire of fifty-five stakes race winners.

Trained by Peter Chapple-Hyam, Rodrigo de Triano made his debut on July 4, 1991 with a win in the Franklin D. Roosevelt Maiden Stakes at Haydock Park Racecourse. He went on to win his next four starts, capping off his undefeated season with a win in the October 3 Group 1 Middle Park Stakes at Newmarket Racecourse.

As a three-year-old, Rodrigo de Triano made eight starts. He debuted on April 11,1992 in the Greenham Stakes at Newbury Racecourse, finishing fourth. He then came back to win two Classics, the 2,000 Guineas Stakes at Newmarket and the Irish 2,000 Guineas at the Curragh. In the Epsom Derby he ran ninth to winner Dr. Devious followed by a fourth place finish to Brief Truce in the St. James's Palace Stakes at Ascot Racecourse. Given two months off, on August 18 at York Racecourse, Rodrigo de Triano returned to top form, defeating Dr. Devious while winning the International Stakes. He next won the October 17 Champion Stakes at Newmarket and then a week later was sold for US$6.2 million to the Japan Racing Association. [1] His new owners sent him to the United States to compete in the October 31 US$3 million Breeders' Cup Classic, hosted that year by Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Florida. Racing on dirt for the first time, and starting from post position eleven in a fourteen horse field, Rodrigo de Triano was never in contention and finished last behind winner A.P. Indy in what would be the final race of his career. For his 1992 performances, Rodrigo de Triano was voted the Cartier Racing Award as the European Champion Three-Year-Old Colt.

Rodrigo de Triano was retired to stud duty in Japan beginning in 1993 and was shuttled to New Zealand for a time beginning in 1997. As at 2009 he is standing at JBBA Kyushu Stallion Station in Kagoshima. He has produced several winners of Conditions races in Japan including Group One winner, Erimo Excel.
