Clarence L. Frock, a retired race horse trainer and owner and a former plumber, died Saturday at Baltimore County General Hospital after a heart attack. He was 77 and lived on a farm in the Westminster area.
Services for Mr. Frock were being held today at the Pritts funeral establishment, 412 Washington Road, Westminster.
Known as Ike, he retired in 1987 as a trainer of horses, most of them his own, that raced at Maryland tracks. Lady Galaxy, of which he was half owner, won several stakes races. In his youth, the Baltimore native was a jockey in flat and jumping races at East Coast tracks.
In the early 1950s, after he stopped riding, Mr. Frock became a plumber. He later turned the business over to his sons and concentrated on horse training.
