JAMES Cummings described yesterday as the best day of his training career after he trained a winning treble which was capped off with a Group 1 win in the Kennedy Mile with Best Of Days.
It was Cummings’ ninth Group 1 win in his career and his seventh since he teamed up with Godolphin in the middle of last year. “It’s a red letter day. I’ve got a great opportunity working with a great bunch of people that can sup- port me with a big team,” Cummings said.
“It’s taken me a bit of time. I’m playing the right people in the right positions now; I’m really confident about that. Now we’re getting the results.”
Cummings said he was proud of the results. “It’s a five or six-month build-up to today. I’m a 30-year-old battler doing my best.
“I’ve got a great opportunity with Sheik Mohammed and he shows faith and support with horses like Best of Days coming over from Europe.”
Cummings said Best Of Days had just put in the best week of his preparation.
Best Of Days ($12) won by half a length over Le Romain ($13), with Peaceful State ($13) a half length away in third.
Craig Williams said Best Of Days was aided by the addition of blinkers.
