British flat racing horse trainer, widely regarded as one of the greatest trainers in history.

Cecil was Champion Trainer 10 times and, as of June 2012, had trained 25 domestic Classic winners, comprising four winners of the Epsom Derby, eight winners of the Epsom Oaks, six winners of the 1,000 Guineas, three of the 2,000 Guineas and four winners of the St. Leger Stakes. His success in the Epsom Oaks and the 1,000 Guineas made him particularly renowned for his success with fillies. He was the Master Trainer at Royal Ascot, where he successfully trained 75 winners.

Cecil was knighted for services to horse racing in the Queen's 2011 Birthday Honours.

He died of cancer on 11 June 2013 in hospital in Cambridge, England.
