A 43-YEAR-OLD woman who died after a road tragedy was well-known in horse-racing circles.
Alison Abercrombie died at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary on Saturday - two days after she was critically hurt.
She was a pedestrian in collision with a Rover ZR car on New Hey Road near its junction with Pinfold Lane, Rastrick, at 10.30pm last Thursday.
The accident scene was close to the motorway bridge where the M62 crosses New Hey Road.
Ms Abercrombie worked for top racehorse trainer Henry Cecil at his Newmarket stables for 20 years.
She was the first female groom to lead a Derby winner into the winner's circle at Epsom.
The winning horse was Reference Point, who triumphed in 1987.
She came originally from this area and moved back to Rastrick when she divorced.
An inquest into her death was opened at Bradford Coroner's Court this morning.
It was adjourned for further police inquiries into the tragedy.
Police have renewed their appeal for witnesses.
Anyone who saw Ms Abercrombie or the car before the accident or the impact is asked to contact Calderdale traffic police on 01422 318146.
