Sightseek (foaled 1999 in Kentucky) is a retired American Thoroughbred racehorse and current broodmare. She was bred and raced by Khalid Abdullah's Juddmonte Farms and was trained by Bobby Frankel. Sightseek is a full-sister to Quest to Peak, who produced the 1000 Guineas winner Special Duty.

A winner of graded stakes races at age two, in her ensuing three and four-year-old seasons Sightseek won seven Grade I races. Nonetheless, she was overshadowed by Azeri in voting for the American Champion Older Female Horse honors despite the fact the two fillies met twice with Sightseek beating Azeri by 11 lengths in the 2004 Ogden Phipps Handicap and Azeri beating Sightseek by 1½ lengths in the Go for Wand Handicap. The 2004 World Thoroughbred Racehorse Rankings rated the two fillies equal.

Following Sightseek's final race on October 9, 2004, her second straight win of the GI Beldame Stakes, trainer Bobby Frankel called Sightseek the best filly he had ever trained. [1] Sightseek was retired to broodmare duty at Juddmonte Farms near Lexington, Kentucky.
