Scintillo (born 6 February 2005) is a British-bred Thoroughbred racehorse which raced out of the United Kingdom. At the age two the colt won the Gran Criterium Group 1. Following an average three-year-old season he, like his sire, came into his own as a four-year-old, winning several significant contests. These include the Grand Prix de Chantilly and the Winter Derby. He was also the ROA All-weather horse of the year 2009.


He was trained by Richard Hannon, Sr. in Wiltshire UK and owned by the White Beech Farm racing syndicate.
