Former Philippi trainer Carl Burger passed away at the age of 60 on Monday afternoon.

A diabetes sufferer, he had not been in the best of health for an extended period and he sadly passed away after suffering a heart attack.

Tabnews reports that Carl trained more than 50 winners after previously serving as assistant to Herman Brown Snr, Selvan Moodley, Weiho Marwing and Riaan Van Reenen.

The best he trained was the stayer Grey Cossack. He won the Listed Durbanville Cup in 2010, before a shock 40-1 triumph in the Gold Vase at Greyville in June 2011.
