Legendary trainer Luca Cumani to retire at year’s end

  • Trainer Luca Cumani

Operating Bedford House Stables in Newmarket since the 1980s and the Fittocks Stud program since 1984, Cumani was also a cultivator of jockey talent, including that of the still-active superstar Frankie Dettori.

Cumani will take a treasure-chest of memories into the next phase of his career, most notably the Derby-Irish Derby double completed by Kahyasi in 1988, and High-Rise's triumph at Epsom 10 years later.

He said: "I've been very lucky to have so many great days". His very first victor as a trainer in his own right came at group-race level, with Gianfranco Dettori -father of Frankie-steering Three Legs (GB) (Petingo ) to win the G3 Duke of York S.in 1976.

Rookie RJ McIntosh has started practicing after spending the season on the non-football injury list. Since then he has made 383 tackles and has become one of the top-rated run stoppers in the NFL.

The 69-year-old has ruled out the possibility of son Matt, who has trained in Australia since 2016, returning home to take over the famed stables. As a result, Bedford Lodge will be sold in the new year, with Cumani and his wife Sara turning their focus to his Fittocks Stud, just outside Newmarket. "I discussed it with Matt but he is training in Australia, which is really the land of opportunity". As well as his two Derby victories, Cumani tasted British Classic success in the 1984 G1 St Leger with Commanche Run (GB) (Run the Gantlet), who would go on to win the following year's global S. Barathea (Ire) (Sadler's Wells) was a Cumani star in the 1990s, winning the G1 Irish 2000 Guineas, the G1 Queen Anne S. and the GI Breeders' Cup Mile. Racing is thriving and booming there at the moment and it makes sense for him to stay there.

In all, Cumani's 43-year career yielded a staggering 124 group race wins, 32 of them at the top level. "Some horses will be sold, some will go to other trainers and that will be that".

In 1999 Fittocks received 650,000 guineas for a yearling who was subsequently named Milan and won the 2001 St Leger for the Coolmore syndicate, before beating all bar Fantastic Light in the Breeders' Cup Turf. I don't like saying it's the end as no-one has died. I've been to Churchill Downs and Melbourne, and now we're having more runners at Wolverhampton and Chelmsford and it's not the same.
