Derby Stallion is a series that began on the Famicom in 1991 and continues to the present, with releases as recent as December 2014 for the Nintendo 3DS. Though it has many sequels, each game in the series is iterative, building on the last and adding a few new features and/or a graphical update each time.

Due to the popularity in Japan of horse-racing and the business aspects of developing a stable, and the relative lack of popularity of same in other countries, no Derby Stallion game has ever been released outside of Japan.
