The 25-year-old reportedly became unwell at around 8:50am on Tuesday at the Manor House Stables, in Maplas, Cheshire.

Cheshire Police confirmed the woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

Owen has taken on a successful career in horse-racing alongside TV punditry after a glittering football career playing for the likes of Liverpool, Newcastle United, Manchester United and Real Madrid.

He founded the stables in 2006 with wife Louise and Betfair co-founder Andrew Black joined as a partner in the enterprise.
