Pine Bluff (foaled 1989 in Kentucky) was an American Thoroughbred racehorse. Bred and raced by John Ed Anthony's Loblolly Stable, he was a son of Danzig and grandson of the 20th Century's most important sire, Northern Dancer. His dam, Rowdy Angel, was a daughter of two-time North American Champion sire Halo.

1992 Triple Crown series

After winning the Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn Park Race Track, on the same track Pine Bluff beat Lil E. Tee by a neck in the Arkansas Derby but finished fifth to him in the ensuing Kentucky Derby that had been dominated by the talk about the overwhelming favorite, Arazi, who finished eighth. Under jockey Chris McCarron, Pine Bluff came back to win the Preakness Stakes, which was the first of two straight Preakness wins for his trainer, Tom Bohannan. In the final leg of the Triple Crown series, Pine Bluff ran third behind A.P. Indy in the Belmont Stakes but earned the $1 million bonus given to the owner of the horse with the best overall performance in the Triple Crown series.

Pine Bluff's racing career ended only a few weeks after the Belmont, when he took a misstep during a routine training run and tore a ligament in his left foreleg. Retired to stud duty, he sired twenty-nine stakes race winners and was pensioned in 2006.
