The Laming Stable wish to convey their condolences to Lorraine McLachlan and her three sons after the sudden death of Bruce this morning at their family home.

Bruce and his family have been great friends of the Laming family for many years and he will be sadly missed.

Bruce has been a champion trainer in Queensland for decades after training more than 3000 winners.  His most recent success was winning the 2009 Magic Millions – Golden Slipper double with Phelan Ready.
