  • "When it comes to training horses, it is arguable that there would be a more recognised surname in Australia than Cummings. "

    James is a fourth generation trainer and is the grandson of Bart, the legendary Melbourne Cups King. He is the face of the modern horse trainer. Highly sophisticated, well-educated and extremely professional.

    . James, 29, learnt his craft under the tutelage of Bart and gained his licence in 2013, with the pair operating a training partnership prior to his death in 2015.

    Cummings moved away from the family business in 2017 to join Godolphin, the global horse racing powerhouse owned by Dubai's ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

    He was handpicked to be Godolphin's Head Trainer in Australia, operating stables in both Sydney and Melbourne.
