The leg­end of Bart


THE undis­puted king of the sport of kings has run his last race.

Bart Cum­mings – a man who trained a record 12 Mel­bourne Cup win­ners and dom­i­nated horse rac­ing across six decades – passed away yesterday at home in Syd­ney sur­rounded by his fam­ily. He was 87.

“I’ve got no re­grets,” Cum­mings said in a 2013 in­ter­view to com­mem­o­rate his 60th an­niver­sary as a trainer. “I’m not a greedy per­son, so I’m very happy with what I’ve achieved.”
