Frankel Trainer Sir Henry Cecil Dies

Champion trainer Sir Henry Cecil has lost his battle with cancer, dying at the age of 70.

The sad news was announced on his website overnight.

“It is with great sadness that Warren Place Stables confirms the passing of Sir Henry Cecil earlier this morning,” the statement said.

“Following communication with the British Horseracing Authority, a temporary licence will be allocated to Lady Cecil.”

Tributes began flowing in for the legendary horseman once the news broke.

“I do not believe this country has ever produced a better trainer than Henry,” fellow top trainer Sir Michael Stoute told sportinglife.com.

“He was a great trainer and an even greater man,” Frankel jockey Tom Queally said.

“Sad to hear that a true great of the racing game has passed away today. Sir Henry Cecil, trainer of the mighty Frankel, RIP,” footballer Michael Owen tweeted.

“He was a legend. My first year with him, I was champion jockey. We had a great rapport and he will be sadly missed,” former stable rider for Cecil, Kieren Fallon, said.

Cecil was named Britain’s Champion Trainer 10 times and was knighted for his services to horse racing in 2011.

A multiple winner of races such as the Epsom Derby, Epsom Oaks, St. Leger Stakes, 2,000 Guineas and 1,000 Guineas, Cecil’s greatest success came with wonder horse Frankel.

Rated as the best horse in the world during his 14-start undefeated career of dominance, Frankel was untouchable wherever he raced.

His smallest winning margin was a half-length on debut as a two-year-old and he went on to win 10 times at Group 1 level.
