He has been named as Mazar Allauddin, 40.
Cowell, a four-time Group 1-winner known for his success with sprinters, paid tribute to Mazar.
He told Racing Post: “We are all devastated here at the yard as you can imagine.
“Although Mazar was only here for two to three weeks he was a very smiley, cheerful person, an accomplished horseman and quickly became a valued member of our small team.
“Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this sad time.”
Cambridgeshire Police said: “We were called at about 8.50am today with reports a person had fallen from a horse on London Road, Newmarket.
“Emergency services attended but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.
“The investigation is being treated as an industrial accident and has been handed over to the Health and Safety Executive.”
It comes just one day after beauty queen Jessica Whalley, 25, died at Michael Owen’s stables.
