Classic winner Stack to retire
Trainer Tommy Stack – former jockey of Red Rum – has announced he is to retire at the end of this year with his son, Fozzy, taking over the licence at his Thomastown Castle base in County Tipperary.
Fozzy Stack will take over the reins from his father
Stack, who won the 1977 Grand National on Red Rum and was a former champion National Hunt jockey in Britain, began training in the 1980s and won the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket in 1994 with the John Reid-ridden Las Meninas.
Stack said on his website: "After some deliberation I have decided to retire at the end of the year when Fozzy, who has been an absolutely essential and integral part of everything here for the best part of 20 years, will take over the licence.
"We have had some memorable days all the way from Corwyn Bay to Myboycharlie and I must thank each and every one of our owners for their commitment and support during that time, while I have absolutely no doubt that many great days lie ahead for Fozzy here at Thomastown Castle."
