Lady Jane Cecil, widow of Sir Henry Cecil, will retire from training at the end of 2015, it was reported today in the Racing Post.

Lady Cecil took over the training license after her husband's death in 2013. Last year the stable enjoyed great success with Noble Mission, a full brother to Frankel who captured three Group 1 races.

In a statement on her website Cecil said, “Training, for me, has always been about working with the horses and the team here at Warren Place. That has been a major factor in why I have continued since Henry died two years ago.”

“Therefore, I confirm that at the end of the Flat season, I will stop training. Until then, the team and I will continue to work hard to achieve as much as we can with the horses.”

“I would like to thank my owners for their much appreciated on-going support. They have been fantastic over the last two years and I can't thank them enough for their understanding and help.”

There has been much speculation regarding the future of Cecil's training base, Warren Place. The yard is believed to be in the process of being purchased by Sheikh Mohammed.
