Tie the Knot (foaled 1994) was an Australian bred Thoroughbred racehorse, who was bred and raced by Mr O. P. Tait and Mrs S. S. Nivison. He won 13 Group One races and in 1999-2000 he was voted Australian Champion Stayer.
Tie the Knot was a chestnut gelding sired by Nassipour (USA) from Whisked by Whiskey Road (USA). He was a half brother to the stakes winner, Dream Ballad by Singspiel (IRE) and eight other named horses. Their dam, Whisked won three group races and almost $550,000 including the VATC One Thousand Guineas. She died on 29 September 2009 from complications after producing a live filly by Strategic.
He retired from racing with a record of 21 wins and 17 minor placings and earnings of A$6,212,835 from his 62 starts. His total of 13 group one wins has been topped only by Kingston Town's 14 and is equal to Sunline's. His winnings in stake money places him fourth to Makybe Diva (GB), Sunline (NZ) and Northerly on the all-time Australasian list.
