Thomas P. Queally (born October 8, 1984 in Dungarvan, County Waterford, Ireland) is a Thoroughbred horse racing jockey. He began his professional in 2000 while still attending school. The son of Declan Queally Declan, who trains a small string of Thoroughbreds in County Waterford, he earned his first win on April 13, 2000 at Ireland's Clonmel Racecourse.

2009 has been Tom Queally's breakthrough year in which he won his first of five Group One races aboard Art Connoisseur in the Golden Jubilee Stakes at Ascot Racecourse. On August 1, aboard Midday, he won his fourth Group One event, the Nassau Stakes at Goodwood Racecourse and on November 7th he again rode Midday to victory in the richest race of his career, the US$2 miillion Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf at Santa Anita Park in California.

Queally told the Daily Mail newspaper he owed his breakthrough success to trainer, Henry Cecil. [1]
