Sad indeed, Steve, he was a true great and living testimony to triumph in adversity, a great man and remarkable example and standard-bearer for others, will be missed enormously.

Had the pleasure of meeting him a couple of times while working at York and Newmarket. A complete gentleman, who had time for everyone (i was only a steward, but he would still take time to say hello and ask how i was)
Sometimes we use the word 'Legend' too easily. Somehow, even Legend does not describe Sir Henry Cecil's greatness.
A very sad day for racing.
Thanks for countless winners Sir Henry. R.I.P.

RIP Sir Henry Cecil a great trainer and a very sad day for racing. Very fitting that he should have ended his career with quite possibly the greatest racehorse ever seen
