Whimsical (foaled 1903 at Raceland Stud in Kentucky) was an American thoroughbred filly racehorse. She was sired by the great stakes winner Orlando, out of the mare, Kismet, who was sired by United States Racing Hall of Fame stallion, Hindoo.
Whimsical is best known as the second filly to ever win the Preakness Stakes. After placing second in the Champagne Stakes as a two year old, she won the Preakness in a time of 1:45 by 4 lengths over Content and Larabie.
The Whimsical Stakes at Pimlico Race Course is a 6 furlong race named for her and is raced on Preakness weekend.
