Montrose (1884–1898) was an American Thoroughbred racehorse that is best remembered for winning the 1887 Kentucky Derby. He was bred in Kentucky at Col. Milton Young's McGrathiana Stud and purchased by the Labold brothers from Cincinnati, Ohio. Ridden by African American Isaac Lewis in the Derby, the colt was trained by former jockey John McGinty.
