The racing world is in shock following the sudden death of racing owner and breeder Lucy Stack at the age of 28.
Her body was found early on Sunday at the family home in Ireland near Cashel at Thomastown Castle, the training yard run by her father-in-law, Tommy Stack.
A police spokesman said it was “a tragic incident. There are no suspicious circumstances”.
Stack was the daughter of late racehorse trainer and eventing rider David Foster, who died at the age of 43 after a rotational fall at a horse trials event in Rathmolyon in late April 1998.
Lucy Stack is survived by her husband, Fozzy Stack, her mother, Denise, and siblings Jessica and Nick.
A statement was released by the families: “The Foster and Stack families are shocked by this terrible tragedy. Lucy was a beautiful girl and a real lady. Fozzy is now back in Ireland and the families would appreciate it if you would be kind enough to respect their privacy at this sad time.”
The funeral is at 2.30pm on Thursday in St. Ultans Church, Rathcore, Enfield.
