Bart CummingsPrint Page
Monument commemorates race horse trainer Bart Cummings who was born and raised in Adelaide, working for his father at the Adelaide stables after completing high school at Marist Brothers, Sacred Heart College.
He took out his own training licence in 1953, utilising his father’s stables. He won his first Group 1 with Stormy Passage in the SAJC Derby in 1958 and has gone on to train stakes winners every year for 47 years since. God`s Own`s win in the 2005 Group 1 Caulfield Guineas saw the stakes winners total reach 678, including 245 Group 1 winners.
Bart established stables at Flemington, now known as Saintly Place, in 1968, which are still his Melbourne headquarters today, and set up stables at Randwick, now known as Leilani Lodge, in 1975, from which he manages his training and spelling operations.
