Sunfire (foaled 1925 in Kentucky) was an American Thoroughbred racehorse. Bred and raced by the co-owner and president of Saratoga Race Course, Richard T. Wilson, Jr., he was sired by Wilson's Olambala, a multiple winner of important races including the Latonia Derby and Suburban Handicap and who sired several top runners including the 1916 American Champion Two-Year-Old Colt, Campfire, and Belmont and Preakness Stakes winner, Pillory.

Sunfire was conditioned for racing by future U.S. Racing Hall of Fame trainer, Thomas J. Healey. In 1928 he won the Toronto Cup Handicap at Old Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto, Canada and the Ohio Derby, held at Bainbridge Park Race Track near Cleveland Ohio. Under jockey Roger Leonard, Sunfire set a new Bainbridge Park Race Track course record of 1:52 1/5 for a mile and a furlong in winning the Ohio Derby. He raced again at age four and back in Toronto won his second straight Toronto Cup Handicap and ran second to Preakness Stakes runner-up Sir Harry in the 1929 King Edward Gold Cup Handicap.

Sunfire was not successful at stud.
