Orientate (foaled March 29, 1999 in Kentucky) is an American Thoroughbred racehorse who won the 2002 Breeder's Cup Sprint [1] and was voted the U.S. Champion Sprint Horse of 2002.[2]

A descendant of the great Nearco through his son Royal Charger, Orientate was bred by Gainesway Thoroughbreds Ltd. and raced by Bob & Beverly Lewis. He was sired by American multiple stakes winner Mt. Livermore and out of the Cox's Ridge mare, Dream Team.[3]
