Satisfy is a Thoroughbred racehorse who is best known for winning the New Zealand Derby in 1987.

Satisfy only won six races in his career, but two came at Group 1 level in the form of the Derby and the Manawatu Sires' Produce Stakes. He also ran third in the 2000 Guineas.

His Derby win though is more remembered for who didn't win it than who did. Eventual runner-up Accountant was the first horse past the post in the 1987 Derby, but the protest siren was sounded as the horse returned after his triumph and the race was taken away in the enquiry room.
