Recapturetheglory (foaled February 11, 2005) is an American Thoroughbred racehorse. Bred by Charles Jacobi, the son of 1994 Breeders' Cup Sprint winner Cherokee Run is out of the mare Cold Awakening, by Dehere.

Recapturetheglory is owned by Louisianans Louie Roussel III and Ronald Lamarque, who also owned Risen Star, winner of the 1988 Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes. Conditioned for racing by Roussel, at age two the colt won for the first time in his third start in a September 29, 2007 maiden special weight race on at Hawthorne Race Course.

In his second start of 2008, Recapturetheglory was sent off as a 15-1 longshot in the 2008 Illinois Derby at Hawthorne Race Course. Under jockey E. T. Baird, the colt scored a convincing four-length victory and his winning purse means he qualified for the Kentucky Derby, the first leg of U.S. Triple Crown series. He finished 5th in the 2008 Kentucky Derby.
