The Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby (Ire-I) lost a star when dual English
Classic winner Sea the Stars (IRE) bowed out due to expected soft
ground conditions, but it launched a new one in Derrick Smith’s colt
Fame and Glory (GB). Now the winner of five of six lifetime starts, the
Investec Epsom Derby (Eng-I) runner-up turned in an impressive
performance in the Irish premier Classic, sailing home by five lengths
over a yielding course.
