Woodman (1983-2007) was an American-bred Thoroughbred racehorse who raced in Ireland but who is best known as a sire of a number of important racehorses.

A descendant of the great sire Nearco through both his dam, Playmate, and his Champion sire, Mr. Prospector, Woodman was a Champion 2-year-old colt in Ireland but was retired to stud duty after five races. Returned to the United States, he stood at Ashford Stud in Versailles, Kentucky. Among his offspring, Woodman sired:

  • Hawk Wing - top two-year old of 2001 in the United Kingdom and Ireland

Woodman was the damsire of Wando, the 2003 Canadian Triple Crown champion, and of Kinsale King, winner of the 2010 Dubai Golden Shaheen.

At age twenty-four, Woodman was humanely euthanized due to the infirmities of old age on July 19, 2007.
