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.
