Publish date:

NEWMARKET, England (AP) One of the most famous names in British horse racing will disappear at the end of the season, after the wife of the late Henry Cecil announced plans to retire as a trainer and sell her stables.

Jane Cecil has held the trainer's license at Warren Place stables in Newmarket since the death of her husband in June 2013.

Cecil says in a statement on her Warren Place website that ''Henry Cecil's executors are in the process of finalizing the sale'' of the stables and that she will stop training at the end of the flat-racing season.

Henry Cecil was Britain's champion flat-racing trainer 10 times and trained the unbeaten Frankel.
