Racing world shocked by death of Lucy Stack

The Irish horse racing community was in shock last night after the death of Lucy Stack.

The winning owner and breeder died on Sunday at her home near Cashel in tragic circumstances at the age of 28.

A Garda spokesman said: “A woman in her late 20s has died in a tragic incident. There are no suspicious circumstances.”

Lucy, daughter of trainer Denise ‘Sneezy’ Foster and the late top eventer David Foster, was married to Fozzy Stack, son of trainer Tommy Stack. She is survived by her mother, sister Jessie and brother Nick.

Hailing from Enfield, County Meath, Lucy saw her pink and black colours carried to victory twice by the Flat stayer Parkers Mills. She also bred Clenor, the prolific US miler who was eighth in last year’s Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Fillies.
