Singspiel (born 1992) (euthanized 1st July 2010 due to laminitis following an illness) was an Irish-bred Thoroughbred racehorse. The Bay horse was out of the Eclipse Award winner and Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame mare, Glorious Song. He was sired by In the Wings, a multiple Group One winner in Europe as well as the Breeders' Cup Turf in America.

Modestly successful as a three-year-old in 1995 when he had four second-place finishes including in the Grand Prix de Paris, Singspiel had highly successful 1996 and 1997 campaigns. He won major races on both dirt and grass surfaces on three continents including the Canadian International Stakes, Japan Cup, Dubai World Cup, Coronation Cup, and International Stakes. Singspiel finished 2nd in the 1996 Breeders' Cup Turf to Pilsudski but the next year was an early favourite to win the race but had to be withdrawn due to a condylar fracture of his right front leg.

Singspiel was retired after the 1997 season and was sent to Sheikh Mohammed's Dalham Hall Stud near Newmarket in England to stand at stud. Among Singspiel's offspring is Moon Ballad who won the 2003 Dubai World Cup and Asakusa Den'en winner of the 2005 Yasuda Kinen.
