Tanya (1902-unknown) was an American thoroughbred filly racehorse bred and raised in Kentucky. She was bred by William Collins Whitney and foaled at his Brookdale Farm in Lincroft, New Jersey. Sired by the outstanding English stallion Meddler, she was out of the mare, Handspun.

Unfortunately, before Tanya could set foot on a track, William Whitney died. She, and several other racers for the Whitney stable, were leased to Herman Duryea, and as a 2-year-old she won the Hopeful Stakes, the National Stallion Stakes, and the Spinaway Stakes under his colors.

1905 Belmont Stakes

Tanya is best known, however, as one of the few fillies to have captured the Belmont Stakes. Purchased for $7,000 by Whitney's son, Harry Payne Whitney, Tanya was trained by future Hall of Fame inductee, John W. Rogers. The filly took the first running of the Belmont at the new Belmont Park on May 24, 1905, beating second-place finisher, Blandy, and her half-brother, Hot Shot, another Meddler colt, who came in third in a time of 2:08 3/5. The Belmont Stakes distance was one mile and a quarter in 1905.
