Langfuhr (foaled 1992 in Ontario) is a Canadian Hall of Fame Thoroughbred racehorse. Owned and bred by noted German-born Canadian horseman Gus Schickedanz, he was named for Langfuhr the former German name for one of the boroughs of the Northern Polish city of Danzig. Langfuhr's sire Danzig was named after that city.

Langfuhr raced in Canada and the United States where he won three Grade 1 races. However, he is better known as the sire of a number of accomplished racehorses.

In 1996, Langfuhr's wins included the American Grade II Forego Handicap at Saratoga Race Course and the Grade I Vosburgh Stakes at Belmont Park. His performances that year earned him Canadian Champion Sprint Horse honors.

After winning the 1997 Carter Handicap at Aqueduct Racetrack in April and May's Metropolitan Handicap at Belmont Park, an injury ended Langfuhr's racing career and he was retired to stud.

As a sire

Retired to stud duty at Lane's End Farm in Versailles, Kentucky, Langfuhr was the 2005 leading sire in North America by number of winners and as of September 8, 2007 has sired 49 stakes winners including:
