Dual Derby-winning trainer Luca Cumani will cease his 43-year training career at the end of 2018, reported racingpost.com. 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.
“Time waits for nobody,” Cumani said. “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.”
Some of Cumani's most notable international winners include: Barathea in the 1994 Breeders' Cup Mile, Tolomeo in the 1983 Arlington Million (over John Henry), Infamy in the 1988 Canadian International, Alkaased in the 2005 Japan Cup, and Presvis in the 2011 Dubai Duty Free.
