SUMMERHILL TRAINER SHEILA Lavery was ‘heartbroken’ as she announced the death of stable star Lady Kaya this afternoon.

The three-year-old filly was due to run in the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot next week, but suffered a broken leg on the gallops this morning.

Lady Kaya was bought for just €15,000 and returned over €250,000 in winnings, including a runner-up finish at the 1,000 Guineas last month.

“Lady Kaya broke her leg this morning and could not be saved,” Lavery tweeted, “no words describe the beauty of Lady Kaya.”
