RIP Pat Smullen

3 years 10 months ago
#796814
The international racing community was rocked on Tuesday night after it emerged that Pat Smullen had died in St Vincent's Hospital in Dublin from pancreatic cancer at the age of 43.

A nine-time Irish champion jockey and 12-time European Classic winner, Smullen had been diagnosed with the illness in March 2018.

His initial treatment led to him being given a clean bill of health last year and he proved an inspiration for many in the way he put his efforts into fundraising initiatives for Cancer Trials Ireland, including an Irish Champions Weekend legends race that ultimately raised over €2.5 million for the cause.

However, he suffered a relapse in recent months and his condition deteriorated last week. He leaves behind his wife Frances and their three children Hannah, Paddy and Sarah - Racingpost.com
