Sir Henry Cecil: Newmarket racehorse trainer's memorial service

Tributes have been paid to Newmarket-based racehorse trainer Sir Henry Cecil at a memorial service in Ely, Cambridgeshire.

The 10-time champion flat trainer died aged 70, on 11 June, after a long battle with cancer. More than 1,000 people attended the service on Monday at Ely Cathedral.

During his four-decade career in horse racing, Sir Henry had 75 winners at Royal Ascot and 25 British Classic winners.

But perhaps his greatest success was with Frankel, who retired last year as the top-rated racehorse in the world.
