Fame and Glory (born 2006) is a thoroughbred horse from Ireland. Sired by Montjeu from the dam Gryada, Fame and Glory is a grandson of Sadler's Wells.

Fame and Glory, owned by Derrick Smith & Sue Magnier & Michael Tabor, raced twice as a two year old, winning an Irish maiden and Criterium de Saint-Cloud. At three, he went to Epsom via the same route as the previous stablemate Derby winner Galileo and High Chaparral, winning the Ballysax Stakes and Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial in Ireland. He ran second behind Sea The Stars in the Epsom Derby.

In June 2009, the horse won the Irish Derby, the 8-11 favourite, ridden by Johnny Murtagh, took up the running from stablemate Golden Sword (11-1) with 300m to go and won by five lengths.[1][2]
