Legendary Irish horse trainer Paddy Mullins has died, aged 91.
Mullins, who enjoyed a career spanning 52 years, passed away peacefully this morning.
The father of current trainers Tom, Willie and Tony Mullins, he enjoyed huge success on the Flat and over jumps, tasting Classic glory with Vintage Tipple in the 2003 Irish Oaks.
He also saddled Hurry Harriet to win the 1973 Champion Stakes at Newmarket.
Mullins is, however, perhaps best remembered for his exploits with the great mare Dawn Run, who remains the only horse to have won the Champion Hurdle (1984) and the Gold Cup (1986) at the Cheltenham Festival.
