Jalan Lumba Kuda is one of the main roads in the Taman Lumba Kuda neighbourhood of Air Itam, Penang. The road developed out of a former country path that connects Jalan Batu Gantong to Jalan Air Itam. In the early days, it was just a nameless path through the Chinese settlement in the area, but over time, became a proper road, and was given the name in the early 1970s when the area was developed with landed properties.
Even today there are still country-style rural houses on undeveloped parts of Jalan Lumba Kuda, alternating with more recent housing development.
