Mary Reveley: Pioneering former racehorse trainer dies aged 76

Reveley’s major horses built-in Mellottie and Cab On Target

Britain’s winning-most female trainer Mary Reveley has died aged 76.

The pioneering former flat and jumps trainer, based totally in North Yorkshire, saddled more than 2,000 winners – more than each different British woman.

Reveley died of a suspected center attack at her family’s stables on Monday morning.

“We’re all still in shock, but it’s just typical of her that she was around horses right up to the end,” discussed her son Keith.

Her flat triumphs include a hit the 1991 Cambridgeshire Handicap with Mellottie and two Cesarewitchs – with Old Red and Turnpole.

Over the jumps, Cab on Target won the Spa Hurdle at Cheltenham and the Mildmay Novices’ Chase at Aintree’s Grand National meeting.

Other big-race victories were given right here through Marello, Seven Towers and Into The Red.

Based at Groundhill Farm stables in Saltburn, Reveley took out a training licence with merely four horses in 1982.

She was once the main woman in Britain to saddle 100 winners in a calendar year, in 1991.

Reveley retired from training in 2004 and handed over to her son, who presented his non-public retirement this January.
