Scottish Chieftain (foaled February 24, 1894) was an American Thoroughbred racehorse. He is the only horse bred in the state of Montana to ever win the Belmont Stakes, an American Classic Race.

Owned and bred by Marcus Daly, one of the wealthy Montana Copper Kings, Scottish Chieftain was trained by Matt Byrnes and ridden by jockey J. Scherrer when he won the 1897 Belmont Stakes. While information of his racing career is limited, it is reported that he also won the Spring Handicap and had a second-place finish in the Tidal Stakes at Sheepshead Bay Race Track.
