Six Perfections (foaled 2000 in France) is a champion Thoroughbred race horse, bred by the Niarchos family. She is best known for her 2003 win in the Breeders' Cup Mile.

Yogya, Six Perfections' dam, is a half sister of to two-time Breeders Cup Mile winner Miesque. Celtic Swing, Six Perfections' sire, had many group one wins, including a first in the Prix du Jockey Club (French Derby).

Six Perfections was trained by Pascal Bary and finished in third or better in thirteen of her fourteen starts, including a 2nd in the 1,000 Guineas.

For her performance in the 2002 racing season Six Perfections earned the Cartier Award for Two-Year-Old European Champion Filly.

Six Perfections ran in her second Breeders Cup mile in October 2004, where she finished 3rd. Following this race, the horse was retired to broodmare duties, was mated to Storm Cat and subsequently produced a bay colt.
