Set Them Free (foaled 1990 in Kentucky) is an American thoroughbred mare racehorse. She is sired by stakes winner Stop The Music, who in turn was sired by the 1960 U.S. Champion 2-Yr-Old Colt, Hail To Reason, out of the Tyrant mare, Valseuse.

She was purchased as a two-year-old by Ann and Jerome Moss at the 1992 Fasig-Tipton Calder sale for $45,000 thru the late trainer, Brian Mayberry and named for a song by the recording artist, Sting.

Known as a sprint specialist, at age two Set Them Free won the Pasadena Stakes at Santa Anita Park and the Debutante Breeders' Cup Stakes at Bay Meadows Racetrack. She placed 11th in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies.

Set Them Free is best known, however, not for her racing success as a graded stakes race winner but more for her success as a broodmare. She is the dam of not one but two Kentucky Derby entrants, 2005 winner Giacomo, by Holy Bull, and Tiago, by Pleasant Tap.

Her 2007 foal is by Pulpit.
