The 10-time champion trainer Sir Henry Cecil has died this morning at the age of 70.

With 25 British Classic winners to his name, Henry Cecil was also a leading trainer at Royal Ascot with a record 75 successes and was knighted in 2011 but has finally lost his fight against cancer.

Born 11 Jan, 1943 in Aberdeen, Henry Cecil took out a trainer licence in 1969 and was champion trainer in 1976, 1978-9, 1982, 1984-5, 1987-8, 1990, 1993.

It is a fitting end to such a great trainer that he should saddle Frankel, officially the highest-ever rated racehorse after finishing his career unbeaten in 14 starts in his final year.
