The nine time flat racing Irish champion jockey was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in March of 2018.

Last year, his Race For Cancer Trials Ireland at the Curragh raised 2 and a half million euro.

A 12 time Classic winner, Offaly native Smullen won a Derby double with Harzand in 2016.

Punchestown Chair, David Money, paid this tribute on Kildare Focus.
