FAME AND GLORY (Montjeu - Gryada by Shirley Heights)

Breeder: Ptarmigan Bloodstock and Kirsten Rausing

FAME AND GLORY, the winning most son of Montjeu, scored career victory number ten on Sunday when taking the Listed Vintage Crop Stakes over 1m5f at Navan.

The five-year-old was making his seasonal reappearance and raced in the colours of Fitri Hay for thefirst time. Out of the Shirley Heights mare Gryada, his sister, Yummy Mummy, only won once - in a 1m2f maiden at three - from seven starts.

Fame And Glory was bred by Ptarmigan Bloodstock and Kirsten Rausing, and was the only foal Gryada produced for them.

She was bought at the 2005 Tattersalls December sale for 160,000gns from Plantation Stud, where the breeding operation of Gryada's breeder, Lord Howard de Walden, was formerly based. Gryada was sold by Lanwades Stud at the same sale a year later, for 180,000gns to agent Amanda Skiffington,

While at Plantation Stud, Gryada produced Grampian, who placed twice at Listedlevel, and Guaranda, who was third in the Listed Upavon Stakes at Salisbury.
