Admetus: In Greek mythology, Admetus was a king of Pherae in Thessaly, succeeding his father Pheres after whom the city was named. Admetus was one of the Argonauts and took part in the Calydonian Boar hunt. His wife Alcestis offered to substitute her own death for his.


Admetus was a French-bred Thoroughbred racehorse. Originally trained in England, he was gelded before his racing career began, rendering him ineligible to run in many of the top European races. Unraced as a two-year-old, he showed promise when winning his last three races in 1973 before being sent to race in France. In 1974 he emerged as a top-class middle-distance performer, winning the Grand Prix d'Evry, Prince of Wales's Stakes and the Prix Maurice de Nieuil before being sent to the United States and defeating a strong field in the Washington D C International. He remained in training for another four seasons but never recaptured the form he had shown in 1974. At the end of his four-year-old season he received the highest Timeform rating ever awarded to a gelding.
