Pillory (foaled 1919 in Kentucky) was an American Thoroughbred racehorse. Bred and raced by the co-owner and president of Saratoga Race Course, Richard T. Wilson, Jr., his damsire was Disguise who raced for James R. Keene in England and was a son of the great Domino. Pillory was sired by Wilson's Olambala, a multiple winner of important races including the Latonia Derby and Suburban Handicap and who sired several top runners including the 1916 American Champion Two-Year-Old Colt, Campfire, and top Handicap winner, Sunfire.

Pillory's race conditioning was handled by future U.S. Racing Hall of Fame trainer, Thomas J. Healey. At age three in 1922, Pillory ran second to J. S. Cosden's French import, Snob II. Thoroughbred racing in 1922 was still a time when the U.S. Triple Crown series had not yet achieved the level of importance it would in the next decade. As such, despite being very important races, the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes were both run on May 13, 1922. The handlers of New York-based Pillory chose not to send the colt on the long railroad trip to Louisville for the Derby. Instead, they entered the colt in the then 1 1/8 mile Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland. Pillory won the Preakness in a fast time of 1:51.60 which equaled the winning time of the great Man o' War two years earlier. Pillory then won the mile and three furlongs Belmont Stakes, defeating rival Snob II who finished second. In the ensuing Jockey Club Gold Cup, Pillory faced a field of older horses and finished third behind winner, Mad Hatter.

Although Pillory won two very important races and was the leading money-winning horse in the United States in 1922. Nonetheless, he was not rated American Champion Three-Year-Old Male Horse, instead the honor was given to Harry Payne Whitney's colt, Whiskaway.

Pillory was not successful at stud.
