Leading horse racing trainer Henry de Bromhead’s teenage son Jack tragically killed in pony riding accident
THE teenage son of Grand National-winning trainer Henry de Bromhead has died after a tragic pony riding accident.
Jack de Bromhead passed away shortly after the incident occurred during the fifth race of the Glenbeigh Festival on Saturday.
Emergency services were quick to the scene on Rossbeigh beach – in County Kerry, Ireland – but sadly the youngster died from his injuries.
The rest of the racing programme was abandoned immediately after the accident and the second day of the festival – which was scheduled for Sunday – has been cancelled.
Jack was a promising young rider who would regularly ride out for his father in their Knockeen stables in Waterford.
The teen rode a winner at the Cahirciveen Races just last weekend.
