Clifford said: "Along with my wife Sarah, my daughter Danielle, and our daughter Charlotte, we are absolutely devastated by what has happened.
"Dominic was the most genuine lad you could possibly wish to meet.
"He will live on in all our thoughts, and never a day will go by when we don't think of him."
Champion race horse trainer Mr Nicholls dedicated his victory with Salubrious in the Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys' Handicap Hurdle to Dominic at last week's Cheltenham Festival.
The family has requested donations to be made to two charities – Brake and Child Bereavement UK.
