Travelling Victor (1979-1992) was a Canadian Thoroughbred Champion racehorse bred by Russell and Lois Bennett at their Flying Horse Farm in Westbank, British Columbia. In 1983, the horse made history when he became the first horse ever to be voted Canadian Horse of the Year honours who had not competed in the Province of Ontario.

During his career, Travelling Victor raced at tracks in Vancouver as well as in the State of Washington. He set two new track records for 1 3/8 miles and 1 1/2 miles at Exhibition Park Racetrack in Vancouver.

Retired having won twenty-one races, of which fifteen were Graded Stakes events, Travelling Victor was standing at stud for his owners when he died unexpectedly in 1992. He is buried at Flying Horse Farm.
