Luca Cumani

Trainer Profile

Luca Cumani
Luca Cumani was born in Italy on April 7 1949.

His mother was a champion jockey and his father a champion trainer, so it stands to reason that Cumani was soon to follow in their footsteps. He started out as a jockey but soon decided that training was his first love. On deciding that Newmarket was THE place to be in the racing world, Cumani moved there to work for Henry Cecil, the 10 time champion trainer.

Cumani started his own training concern at Bedford House in 1976 and his star has continued to shine ever since. By the time he had been in business for 10 years, he had already had 12 Group 1 winners, in 5 countries. This figure has risen to 55 at the time of being published. He set his sights on the international racing area once he had claimed most of the better known domestic races and he has won Group 1 races in both Japan and Hong Kong with champion mounts Falbrav and Alkaased.

Luca Cumani
He has become known in the industry as a mentor to both jockeys and assistant trainers. Frankie Dettori, Jimmy Fortune and Nicky Mackay are all champion apprentices who were mentored by Cumani, and James Toller, Marco Botti and David Simcock are some of the better known current trainers who spent time with Cumani in their formative years.

Cumani has trained many high profile horses including Barathea who won the Breeders Cup in 1994
