Wild Again (foaled May 22, 1980 in Kentucky - December 5, 2008) was an American Thoroughbred racehorse by Icecapade out of Bushel-N-Peck (by Khaled). He was broken and initially trained by Tommy Akin, but for the majority of his career was trained by Vincent Timphony. Bred by Paule Little and owned by Black Chip Stables, he is most famous for winning the inaugural Breeders' Cup Classic in 1984 over Slew o'Gold and Gate Dancer in a famous stretch run where all three battled head-to-head to the finish line.
The dark brown colt ran in 28 races in his four-year career, winning 8, placing 7 times, and coming in third on four occasions.
