Snaafi Dancer (foaled 1982 in the United States) is an Thoroughbred racehorse who was the first yearling to sell for more than $10 million.  Bred by Donald T. Johnson under the name of his Crescent Farm, he was out of the mare My Bupers and sired by Northern Dancer whom the National Thoroughbred Racing Association calls "one of the most influential sires in Thoroughbred history." .
Sent to the 1983 Keeneland Select Sale, forty-five seconds after the $1 million opening bid, a new record price was reached of $4.5 million but did not stop there. In the end, the unnamed yearling sold for an unheard of $10.2 million to Sheikh Mohammed's Aston Upthorpe Stud. Looking for a Northern Dancer horse that could be a foundation stallion for his breeding operations as had happened with chiel rival Coolmore Stud, Sheikh Mohammed not only paid the highest price ever for a yearling, but the highest price for any Thoroughbred ever sold at auction. 
Snaafi Dancer never raced and was retired to stud duty where he was discovered to have fertility problems. From two years of breeding, he sired only four foals, three of which raced with very limited success. Retired, Snaafi Dancer was last reported as being at a farm in Florida.
