Sinndar, (foaled 1997) is an Irish Thoroughbred racehorse owned and bred by HH Aga Khan IV, and trained by John Oxx. He was sired by Grand Lodge covering Sinntara (Lashkari). Sinndar was foaled in 1997, and in 2000 he became the only horse to win the Epsom Derby, Irish Derby Stakes and Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe in the same year. He won seven of eight starts, and was only beaten by a head while giving seven pounds in his only defeat. For his performances in 2000, Sinndar was voted Cartier Three-Year-Old European Champion Colt.

Retired to stud, Sinndar stands at the Aga Khan's Haras de Bonneval in Le Mesnil-Mauger in Lower Normandy. Among his progeny, in 2002 he sired Shawanda who won the 2005 Irish Oaks and Prix Vermeille, in 2003 the multiple stakes winner Youmzain whose wins include the Group One Preis von Europa in 2006, and in 2007 he sired Rosanara who won the 2009 Prix Marcel Boussac. Youmzain finished second in the 2007, 08, and 09 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphes.
