A Day at the Races is a rock album by British band Queen originally released in 1976. The album was recorded at Sarm West and Wessex Studios, United Kingdom, and engineeed by Mike Stone.

The title of the album was a reference to the band's immediately proceeding album, A Night at the Opera. While the earlier album presumably took its name from the operatic themes of the song "Bohemian Rhapsody", both A Night at the Opera and A Day at the Races were also titles of films by the Marx Brothers.
