Coolmore is standing Fame and Glory for 5000 Euros. Is this the best deal going in Europe?

Coolmore is
A fond farewell to Fame and Glory who was formally retired to Coolmore yesterday. He was a winner 14 of his 26 starts including 5 G1 races such as the Irish Derby, the Ascot Gold Cup and the Coronation Cup. A simply gorgeous son of Montjeu, he will no doubt be popular at stud. It is a shame that his debut in America, as well as his final career start, was the BC Marathon. Surely, they could have found a better swan song for him.
  • ILuvTurfRacing · @yulkichan, I couldn't agree more and said just about the same thing myself identically. Fame and Glory was a class act during his racing career for Coolmore/Ballydoyle. He was a multiple G1 winner at distances of 10f, 12f, & 20f. Plus, a listed, G3, & G2 winner at distances of 10f, 14f, & 16f. He rarely ever ran a bad race during his career and took every step up in trip ask of him by Aidan O'Brien in stride, and more often than not excelled when stepped up in trip. When he came back in ran in the G1 Ascot Gold Cup & G3 British Champions Long Distance Cup for a second time in 2012, he wasn't quite the same horse he'd been when he won both races the year prior, but he by no means disgraced himself the second time around, either. He sure deserved a hell of a lot better than being brought to America and basically just thrown to the wolves on a surface his bloodlines have never fared very well on. You're 110% right in saying he deserved a better swan song than he got!! · 738 days ago
A late addition to Coolmore's Breeders Cup roster, Fame and Glory will run in the BC Marathon. Certainly there's no question he'll be one of the class horses in the field and the 1-3/4 will not be an issue either. Only the same question that comes up for the European's in this race and the Classic every year. How will F&G handle the switch from turf to conventional dirt?

  • ILuvTurfRacing · @AmbitiousD, I think F&G will definitely be the class of the BC Marathon field. If he's within 3 or 4 lengths of the leader turning for home I think he wins the race. JMO. · 855 days ago
  • ILuvTurfRacing · Aidan O'Brien has also said on Racing Post.com that win, lose, or draw this will likely be Fame and Glory's final race before being retired and sent off to stud. Frankly, they've kept him racing longer than I ever thought they would. I thought they might retire him after the 2012 Ascot Gold Cup? Then when they decided to keep him training for the Irish St. Leger and BC Long Distance Cup, I thought for sure Ascot on Champions Day would be his final appearance. But I'm certainly not complaining. Fame and Glory's a class horse and his unexpected entry into the BC Marathon field was a very pleasant surprise. · 855 days ago
Probably one of the most interesting surprise entries into any Breeder's Cup race. Instantly becomes a good chance on his love for staying distances. The question I need to try and answer is if transition to dirt will be less of hinderance than all the dirt horses adding extra distance? I love seeing European turf horses make their dirt debut in the Marathon
DRF is reporting that European multiple Group 1 winner Fame And Glory has been pre-entered in the Breeders' Cup Dirt Marathon.
After he let his class show at Ascot back in June, winning the G1 Ascot Gold Cup. Fame and Glory's had a couple of very disappointing races since. An unexpected loss to Fictional Account in the Irish St. Leger Trial, and a very lackluster effort in the G1 Irish St. Leger, where he faded to a distant 4th place. But Fame and Glory was back to his best again at Ascot in winning the Champions Long Distance Cup over 2 miles. Beating his old Gold Cup rival, Opinion Poll. Who had won the Goodwood and Lonsdale Cup's, and a Doncaster Cup 2nd since his Gold Cup run. I really felt like Fame and Glory was the class horse in the race today. He's had by far more G1 success than any of the other horses in the Long Distance Cup field. I was happy to see an effort like this again from Fame and Glory. I was starting to wonder after seeing him suffer back to back losses if that grueling 2-1/2 mile Gold Cup run hadn't taken more out of him than anyone really knew?

  • icyhotboo · I actually started in harness racing where the distance was a standard mile. Making the transition to thoroughbreds was very difficult for me because of the distance factor so at first I stayed only with graded stakes at 1 1/8 and 1 1/4 mile then eased my way in but only as a bettor. I never owned a thoroughbred other than one cheap claimer at Finger Lakes. · 1232 days ago

Going back to the 2010 season, Fame and Glory had won 7 of his last 8 races. His last defeat came when he finished 5th in last year's Arc De Triomphe under a troubled trip. Fame and Glory has already banked the Vintage Crop Stakes and the Saval Beg Stakes in Ireland, plus the G1 Ascot Gold Cup so far in 2011. But his run of undefeated came to an abrupt end at the Curragh today. As the mare, Fictional Account, defeated Fame and Glory by a neck in the Irish St. Leger Trial raced over 1-3/4 in Ireland today.
Cigar, I saw the Ivestec Derby that Fame and Glory ran 2nd to See The Stars. He's a real good looking colt. I'll be watching for him next year as well. I know Rip Van Winkle and Mastercraftsman are getting most of the media spotlight, but 3 of the Euro's I'm anxious to see, if they do come, are Septimus, Delegator, and Gladiatoras. Depending on which website you look up the potential starters on all 3 of these are scheduled to be here.
Looks like the second to Sea The Stars took its toll... looking forward to this one next year. Still young, and no Sea The Stars next year.
Trainer O'Brien saying today in an article picked up by Thoroughbred Times that his 3yr.old colt will now stay home and prepare for his 4yr.old campaign after a disappointing 5th place finish in the October 17th Champion Stakes won by Twice Over. Twice over will apparently now be coming to run in the Classic with stablemate's Rip Van Winkle and Mastercraftsman along with some strong juvenile contenders that O'Brien plans to bring to this years Breeders Cup races at Santa Anita-Oak Tree.
