Author Notes: Peter Gray started a practice in Fermon, Country Cork, a major growth area in the world of Thoroughbred breeding in 1967. From this he was taken to the international sales circuit, acting on behalf of buyers. He also vetted for leading trainers and agents and for individuals buying three-day-eventers and show-jumpers. In 1972 he led the clinical attack in the first European outbreak of equine viruses abortion accompanied by paralysis. The manner in which the problem was tackled laid the basis or the way such outbreaks are approached even today. During the seventies he ran a foaling station, and also developed an active interest in physiotherapy as a form of treatment for lame horses. As well as the clinical diagnosis and control of virus diseases in racing and competing horses. In 1983 he took out a permit to train under National Hunt rules and then acted as a resident vet in one of the larger racing yards in Britain during a virus outbreak in the following flat season.
