San San was an American-bred Thoroughbred Champion racehorse in France. Bred by Harry F. Guggenheim, the granddaughter of Nasrullah was bought by Countess Margit Batthyany, owner of Haras du Bois-Roussel at Alençon, Orne, in France.

Racing at age two and three, San San finished second three times and had five wins. Her most important victories came in 1972 in the Group One Prix Vermeille in which she was ridden by Jean Cruguet who would shortly leave for America where he would ride Seattle Slew to victory in the U.S. Triple Crown races. In October, San San was ridden by leading French jockey Freddy Head when she won France's most prestigious race, the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe. In the 1½ mile long Arc, she defeated Rescousse whom she had earlier been second to in the Prix de la Nonette.

Sent to compete in the Washington, D.C. International at Laurel Park in Laurel, Maryland, San San finished fourth to winner, Droll Role.
