Western Daily Press - - UK & World News -

RACE­HORSE owner Lady Roth­schild has died, a spokes­woman for her fam­ily has said.

Lady Roth­schild, born Ser­ena Mary Dunn, “fought a re­cent ill­ness most valiantly” and died in hospi­tal in Lon­don yes­ter­day, the spokes­woman added.

Lady Roth­schild, who was known to shy away from the pub­lic eye, was mar­ried to in­vest­ment banker Lord Ja­cob Roth­schild.

The daugh­ter of Cana­dian fi­nancier Sir James Dunn, she leaves four chil­dren and eight grand­chil­dren.

Lady Roth­schild, 83, en­joyed a land­mark suc­cess on the race­course in 2011, when her colt Nathaniel won the King Ge­orge VI and Queen El­iz­a­beth Stakes at As­cot.

How­ever, he be­came the first of the two to sire a Clas­sic vic­tor when En­able, the cur­rent dar­ling of the Flat rac­ing scene and a dual Prix de l’Arc de Tri­om­phe win­ner, claimed the 2017 Oaks at Ep­som.

While Nathaniel was Lady Roth­schild’s head­line horse, she also had an Ir­ish Oaks win­ner in Great Heav­ens in her blue and yel­low colours, while Pounced was a Breed­ers’ Cup win­ner for her in Amer­ica back in 2009.
