Tudor Queen (foaled 1967 in Kentucky) was a Champion Thoroughbred filly racehorse in Canada and the United States. His British sire was King of the Tudors, a multiple stakes winner whose wins included the 1953 Sussex Stakes and 1954 Eclipse Stakes. Grandsire, Tudor Minstrel, won a British Classic, the 1947 2,000 Guineas Stakes. Tudor Queen's dam was Royal Dowry, a granddaughter of the great Nearco through his son, Royal Charger.

Purchased by Jack Stafford, owner of Stafford Farms in King, Ontario, Tudor Queen was conditioned for racing by future Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame inductee, Gil Rowntree. Based at Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto, at age two the filly had her best year in racing, winning four important stakes races in Canada and the Frizette Stakes at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York. At year end, she was voted the 1969 American Co-Champion Two-Year-Old Filly making her the defacto Canadian Two Year-Old Champion in the pre Sovereign Award era. [1]

Tudor Queen raced at age three and four, notably winning the 1970 Duchess Handicap at her home base and the following year, the Nettie Handicap.

Retired to broodmare duty, Tudor Queens offspring met with limited racing success.
