Prominent steeplechase trainer Tom Voss, of Monkton, Md., died unexpectedly on the evening of Jan. 21.

A former timber jockey, Voss has been training horses for more than 40 years. He won his first race at My Lady’s Manor (Md.) in 1975. He won five National Steeplechase Association leading trainer titles and trained Slip Away, winner of the 2010 Eclipse Award. Voss also served as Jt.-MFH of the Elkridge-Harford Hounds.

Voss, 63, leaves behind a wife, Mimi, and two children. Our thoughts are with them through this tragedy.
