A 190,000 gns Tattersalls foal, Fame And Glory is out of the winning Group Three-placed mare Gryada, also the dam of the winning Listed-placed pair Grampian and Guaranda. The second dam Grimpola won the Group Two German 1000 Guineas.

Fame And Glory joins Motivator (who is having his first runners as a sire at the moment and awaits his first winner), Authorized, Hurricane Run and Frozen Fire as Derby-winning sons of Montjeu, who has 41 European winners this term. The son of Sadler's Wells has only one juvenile winner thus far, and overall only 14% of his wins come from two-year-olds, with 48% in the three-year-old division. He leads our list of leading middle distance sires by European earnings.
