Smoke Glacken (foaled 1994 in Maryland) is an American Champion Thoroughbred racehorse. Sired by Two Punch, a son of the important sire, Mr. Prospector, his dam was Majesty's Crown, a daughter of Irish stakes winner Magesterial who was a son of Northern Dancer.

Trained by Henry Carroll, at age two Smoke Glacken finished second in his racing debut then won four straight, including the Tyro Stakes, and the Grade II Sapling Stakes both at Monmouth Park Racetrack and his most important win of 1996, the Grade I Hopeful Stakes at Saratoga Race Course by nine lengths. He finished his two-year-old season with $284,500 in earnings.

A sprint horse best at distances of a mile or less, in his three-year-old season Smoke Glacken won six of his eight races and had a second and a third place finish in his other two starts. He won the Grade II Frank J. De Francis Memorial Dash Stakes at Laurel Park, the Grade III Riva Ridge Stakes at Belmont Park, the Grade III Southwest Stakes at Oaklawn Park by eight lengths, the Grade III Jersey Shore Breeders' Cup Stakes, the Mountain Valley Stakes, and the Black Gold Handicap. He was second in the Grade II Lexington Stakes at Keeneland to Touch Gold, and third in the Grade III Louisiana Derby to Crypto Star and Half Watch by a half-length. He finished his three-year-old season with $475,060 in earnings.
