Stevie Wonderboy (foaled 2003 in Kentucky) is a retired Thoroughbred race horse. Competing in 2005, his performances that year, capped off by a win in the fall's Breeders' Cup Juvenile, earned him the Eclipse Award for Outstanding 2-Year-Old Male Horse. Going into the 2006 racing season he was expected to be a contender for the U.S. Triple Crown. However, on February 7, 2006, it was announced that Stevie Wonderboy had suffered a hairline fracture in his ankle. On February 8, a screw was inserted in to his leg to correct the fracture. The announcement was made that he would not race in the Kentucky Derby or any of the Triple Crown races. In July 2007, it was announced that Stevie Wonderboy had retired.
Stevie Wonderboy is owned by the Merv Griffin Ranch Company. He was bred in Kentucky by John Gunther, Tony Holmes and Walter Zent. Trained by Doug O'Neill, in all of his lifetime starts he was ridden by Garrett Gomez.
