Ashado (born February 4, 2001) is American Thoroughbred mare racehorse. Highly successful in racing, she is a two-time Eclipse Award winner. At the end of the 2005 racing season her owner group, which included trainer Todd Pletcher, Paul Saylor, Johns Martin, and Mr. & Mrs. Jack Wolf, sold her at the Keeneland November auction for $9 million, a world-record price for a broodmare/broodmare prospect. Ashado was retired to broodmare duty at her new owner's Jonabell Farm in Lexington, Kentucky.

Two-time champion Ashado, who sold for a world record $9 million, produced her first foal, a Storm Cat colt, on March 18, 2007. She is owned by Sheikh Mohammed's Darley Stables and produced the Kentucky-bred colt for Darley Stud Management.

Ashado, by Saint Ballado, established a world record price for a broodmare or broodmare prospect when bought for $9 million by John Ferguson Bloodstock for Sheikh Mohammed at the 2005 Keeneland November breeding stock sale. Taylor Made Sales Agency consigned as agent.

Ashado's dam, Goulash (by Mari's Book), produced a half-brother to Ashado on March 21, 2007. The newborn colt is by Storm Cat.
