Corrida (1932- probably 1944) was a French Thoroughbred racehorse who won races in France, Belgium and England and is regarded as one of the top fillies of the 20th Century worldwide. She is best known for her back-to-back wins in France's most prestigious horse race, the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.
In 1936, she blossomed into the most dominant horse in France. That year, Corrida won seven major races. In England, she captured the Hardwicke Stakes at Ascot Racecourse, then won the Grand International d'Ostende at Hippodrome Wellington, in Ostend, Belgium and in France the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud, the Prix d'Hedouville, the Prix du Prince de Galles, and the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, and repeated her win in the Grand Prix de Marseille.
In 1937, Corrida returned to Belgium to win her second straight Grand International d'Ostende and traveled to Berlin, Germany, where she won the Grosser Preis von Reichshauptstadt. In October at Hippodrome de Longchamp in Paris, she continued to dominate the colts, becoming the first female horse to ever win the 1½ mile Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe twice.
