No Class (March 30, 1974 - 1993) was a Canadian Hall of Fame Thoroughbred racehorse. Bred by Jack Hood of Stratford, Ontario, her dam was Classy Quillo whose damsire was Princequillo. Her sire, Nodouble was an outstanding runner who was voted American Co-Champion Older Male Horse honors in 1969 and 1970 and was the Leading sire in North America in 1981. No Class was purchased by Sam-Son Farms for $25,000 at the 1975 Canadian Thoroughbred Horse Society yearling sale.
While No Class had limited success on the track, her 1997 induction in the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame was in recognition of her contribution to racing as a broodmare. A winner of the 1985 Sovereign Award for Outstanding Broodmare, she was the dam of eight foals of which seven raced.
