Tank's Prospect (1982-1995) was an American Thoroughbred racehorse best known for winning the second leg of the U.S. Triple Crown series, the Preakness Stakes. Bred by Edward A. Seltzer, he was purchased for $625,000 at the 1983 Keeneland July Selected Yearling sale by trainer D. Wayne Lukas for his client, Eugene Klein. The colt was given his name by Klein for Paul "Tank" Younger, a former National Football League player and executive with Klein's San Diego Chargers football team.
At age two, Tank's Prospect won his first start, a six-furlong race at California's Santa Anita Park. While he did not win a major race that year, in the inaugural running of the Breeders' Cup Juvenile he finished second to winner Chief's Crown and ahead of third-place finisher, Spend A Buck. Racing at age three in 1985, Tank's Prospect won the El Camino Real Derby and Arkansas Derby  before running seventh in the Kentucky Derby. He then won the Preakness Stakes in stakes record time.  In the third leg of the Triple Crown, Tank's Prospect broke down at the top of stretch in the Belmont Stakes and did not finish the race. The injury ended his racing career.
Tank's Prospect was standing at Venture Farms in Aubrey, Texas when he died on March 2,1995 from a ruptured arterial blood vessel.
