Brokers Tip (1930-1953) was a Thoroughbred racehorse who is the only horse in history whose sole win came in the Kentucky Derby. His Derby win went down in history as the "Fighting Finish" because Brokers Tip's jockey Don Meade and Herb Fisher, the jockey aboard rival Head Play, literally fought one another atop their mounts down the homestretch. In an era before photo finishes, Brokers Tip was declared the winner by a nose.

Retired to stud duty, Brokers Tip sired Market Wise, a multiple stakes winner and 1943 Co-champion Handicap Horse.
