Irish trainer Codd dies, aged 43
Leading Irish point-to-point trainer Willie Codd died on Wednesday evening, aged 43, the Irish Turf Club has confirmed.
Wexford-based Codd, the brother of champion amateur rider Jamie, was also a wellrespected jockey and partnered What Odds to victory in the Champion Hunter Chase at the 2003 Punchestown Festival.
Codd was renowned for producing many promising youngsters in the point-topoint fields, with the likes of Tranquil Sea, Alisier D’irlande, Tell Us More, and Stellar Notion passing through his hands.
Tellthemnuttin was Codd’s most recent flag-bearer under rules and won three races last year.
Codd will repose at his parents’ home in County Wexford. His funeral mass will take place at noon tomorrow at St Fintan’s Church, Mayglass.
