Pentire (foaled April 12, 1992) is a British Thoroughbred racehorse and sire. Bred by Lord Halifax, he was purchased for 54,000 guineas by Mollers Racing, the racing stable Trust of brothers Eric and Budgie Moller.

Trained by Geoff Wragg, at age two Pentire's best result in a conditions race was a third in the Richmond Stakes. At age three in 1995, the colt had an outstanding year that included twice beating the brilliant runner, Singspiel. Pentire made seven starts, winning six and earning a strong second to Lammtarra in Britain's most prestigious all-age race, the Group one King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes. In 1996, Pentire came back to a dominating win in the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes and earned a Timeform rating of 132 for the second straight year. [1] On October 6th, Pentire ran tenth to winner Helissio in the 1996 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe in Paris and then in what would be his final race, finished eighth to Singspiel in the Japan Cup in Tokyo.

As a sire

Purchased for breeding purposes by Teruya Yoshida, owner of one of Japan's preeminent breeding operations, Shadai Farm, Pentire was retired to stud in 1997 at his owner's farm and also stood that year in New Zealand. In 2004 he was sent to a breeding operation in Germany. As at 2009, Pentire is the foundation sire at Rich Hill Stud, Walton, New Zealand. To date, he has sired 312 winners, including 25 stakes winners. [2]
