Tom Scudamore paid tribute to top-tier player Adagio, who died after suffering a heart attack on the sprint Thursday morning.

The five-year-old rose to the top level to land in the event final at Chepstow in January 2021 before finishing second at the Cheltenham Festival and Aintree National Grand Prix that same season.

David Pipe’s practiced kick was scheduled to take place at Godolphin Caesarwich on Saturday, which was his second favourite.

“It is with great sadness that I report that Adagio suffered a fatal heart attack on a sprint passenger this morning. His companions and everyone at Bond House are very sad,” Pipe wrote on Twitter.

Earning £140,698 in prize money, Adagio won four of his 13 races and finished second six times in a career spanning three seasons.

He moved from France in 2020 and in all of Britain’s 10 debuts, Scudamore has been on the hook, paying tribute to one of the superstars on the Somerset Pipe arena.

“He was a cracked horse and he’d be glad to have anything to do with it,” Scudamore said. “He was one of the main horses of the Pond House and he has given us all so much joy.

“Not only did he win the first class at Chepstow, he competed well in Cheltenham, Aintree and Punchestown and gave Caroline, Brian and the partners so many happy days. We will miss him dearly.”

Arc-winning racer Luke Morris was due to race with Adagio in the £200,000 race on Saturday. Priced at 25-1 in August, it was brought back to 6-1 by Thursday morning.
