Alec Taylor, Jr. (1862–1943) was a British Thoroughbred racehorse trainer who followed in the footsteps of his highly successful father, Alec Taylor, Sr..

From his Manton Stud at Manton, Wiltshire, Alec Taylor trained a large number of very successful horses, winning most every major race in England. He claimed victory in twenty-one of the Classic Races and is the only trainer to ever win two British Triple Crown titles, doing it back-to-back in 1917 and 1918. Remaining as trainer until his retirement in 1927, in 1918 Taylor sold Manton to Joseph Watson, the Leeds soap magnate, winning the 1921 Epsom Oaks for him with Love in Idleness and the Grand Prix de Paris the same year with Lemonora, which came 3rd. in that year's Derby. Watson was elevated to the peerage in 1922 taking the title Baron Manton.

Twelve times Taylor earned British flat racing Champion Trainer honors as the year's leader in earnings including seven in a row between 1917 and 1923.

Beyond his Classic winners, Taylor also trained Buchan, Picaroon, and Sceptre, amongst others.
