At age two, Adam's Apple won the Soltykoff Stakes at Newmarket Racecourse. He ran third in the 1926 Criterion Stakes at Newmarket Racecourse and third again in the New Stakes at Ascot Racecourse behind Sickle and the winner, Damon. He made four starts as a three-year-old, finishing off the board in three; however, he was ridden to victory by jockey Jack Leach in the 1927 2000 Guineas Stakes, defeating runner-up Call Boy (later the Epsom Derby winner), with Sickle third.
After his retirement from racing, Adam's Apple was sold to Argentine breeders. There he met with some success, siring the filly Chimentera, winner of the Las Oaks at Santiago Chile's Club Hipico de Santiago, and the very good filly La Bastille, likewise a winner of the Oaks but who also defeated her male counterparts in winning the El Derby at the Valparaiso Sporting Club racetrack at Vina del Mar, Chile.
