Caressing is an American Thoroughbred racehorse and broodmare. She won five of her eighteen races in a track career which lasted from July 2000 until November 2002. As a two-year-old she won two of her first four races before recording a 47/1 upset win in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies, which led to her being named American Champion Two-Year-Old Filly. In the following year her career was disrupted by illness but she did win the La Troienne Stakes and the Singapore Plate. After competing without success as a four-year-old she was retired from racing and has had some success as a dam of winners.

Quotes about Caressing

A gentle breeze is blowing through my hair,
When sitting on this green meadow with you,
Those throbbing moments hugging me,
Your deep brown eyes caressing me,
Made my heart beats forget the pain of love. (Cristina Teodor)
