Sariska (foaled February 14, 2006 in England) is a Thoroughbred filly racehorse. Bred and raced by Lady Bamford, she was named for the Sariska Tiger Reserve in the Alwar district of the Indian state of Rajasthan.

Trained by Michael Bell, Sariska made her racing debut on November 1, 2008, winning a maiden race for filles at Newmarket Racecourse. She did not return to the track until April 18, 2009 when she ran fourth to winner Lahaleeb in the Fred Darling Stakes at Newbury Racecourse. In her next start, Sariska won the Musidora Stakes at York Racecourse. Made the betting favorite for the Epsom Oaks, under jockey Jamie Spencer, who had ridden her in all of her previous starts, Sariska did not disappoint and outfought Midday down the stretch to win the Classic by a small head. She followed that up with another victory in the Irish Oaks, where she once again confirmed her superiority over Midday, as Sariska cruised to a comfortable victory, never coming off the bridle.
