Racing Post Editor Bruce Millington looks back at legendary trainer Luca Cumani and his major contribution to European racing in 43 years.

Luca Cumani will bring an end in December to an illustrious training career that has placed him among the finest trainers in Europe for more than two decades.

Cumani will stand down after 43 years at Bedford House Stables in Newmarket, from where he trained two Derby winners and a spate of stars, largely in the 1980s and 90s.

“Time waits for nobody,” Cumani said on Monday. “I have decided this is a good moment to wind down, although I see it as more of a change of direction for me. From next year I will devote all my energies to running our Fittocks Stud.”
