Stable Spotlight – Edward Cummings

August 29, 2022November 20th, 2023No Comments

Edward Cummings has, since March of 2017, trained in partnership with his Father Anthony, achieving success quickly with a talented mare called Top Of My List. The father and son partnership trained her to win the Group 3 JRA Plate (2000m) at Randwick on the last day of the Autumn Carnival, after which she backed up a win in the Listed ATC Winter Cup, again over 2000m.

Just prior to Edward establishing himself as a trainer in his own right, the partnership experienced a great run of success with a promising young Miler in Sky Boy, bred by the late, great Dato Tan Chin Nam. His success in the Group 2 Villiers Stakes was the high-water mark for the partnership and provided a fitting closure to what was without doubt a successful two-year period.

Edward’s ambition to carve out his own imprint as a trainer fueled the decision to head out on his own and he plans to start with a small team of horses in the provincial setting of Hawkesbury Race Course. His Grandfather, Bart had a very good eye for the future and invested heavily in the Hawkesbury area, purchasing Princes Farm in Castlereagh in the late 1980’s and was it’s custodian until his passing in 2015. Edward’s philosophy on training mirrors that of his Grand Father, Father and Brother but ultimately sees the opportunity in using provincial training facilities to provide a better environment for his horses and better value for his client base.

The Hawkesbury region is a growing one and the race-course management – led by Greg Rudolph as Chief Executive Officer – are determined to create an even better training facility that will become the equal of any metropolitan precinct in Australia. Investment in training tracks, stables, pools and other amenities has spurred Edward to make the move and continue his family’s proud tradition.
