Neil Adam 70 Trainer of Gentilhombre
lNeil Adam sends out first and third in the Prix de l'Abbaye as Gentilhombre
(Paul Cook) trounces Madang (Luigi Brogi/Franco Dettori).
He made an instant impact when making the transition from full-time vet to trainer at the age of 42, notching a Group-race double at Royal Ascot in his second season in 1976, and that same year landing the first of back-to-back Prix de l'Abbaye successes with Gentilhombre
lHaveroid (Neil Adam/Edward Hide) proves an able sub for injured stablemate Gentilhombre
as he gets up on the line against odds-on Godswalk (Vincent O'Brien/Lester Piggott) in the Sprint Championship.
lThe foul-tempered Marinsky (Vincent O'Brien/Lester Piggott) finishes first in the July Cup but, in spite of wearing a muzzle, he tries to savage runner-up Gentilhombre
(Neil Adam/Paul Cook) and is relegated to second.
