'A fabulous trainer' - racing remembers Zoe Davison on social media
The racing community has paid tribute to trainer Zoe Davison, who passed away on Sunday at the age of 60.
Davison tragically lost her battle with cancer on a day her yard saddled an emotional double at one of her local tracks, Plumpton, where she enjoyed plenty of success in the past.
Her family, fellow trainers, jockeys and fans of racing have paid their respects and shared their fond memories of Davison on Twitter.

Here’s Zoe Davison just a few weeks ago, still riding out full speed over the grass. Taken way too early by the dreaded cancer. A fabulous trainer, mother, grandmother, and general supporter of everyone she met. What a legend pic.twitter.com/4K7P8jRRVG— Vaughan Lewis (@VaughanLewis1) January 3, 2021

I didn't know her personally, but I like so many others am absolutely gutted about the news of Zoe Davison.— Jake Russell (@JakeRuss1000) January 3, 2021
It really puts life into perspective.
The elation for the yard celebrating a double at Zoe's favourite track, to then the absolute lowest of lows with her passing.
So sad to read that a regular on the racetracks of Sussex - Zoe Davison - has finally succumbed to her ill health.— Nicholas O'Leary (@nolearyASJ) January 3, 2021
What better way to send her off than a double @plumptonraces.
Thoughts are with the family, close friends and all those at the yard.
Go well, Zoe. https://t.co/u72y9TZkEs
