James Cummings Begins Godolphin Gig

By Brad Gray

A new chapter of Australia’s Godolphin operation begins on Saturday at Warwick Farm with James Cummings officially taking the reins as head trainer.

Darren Beadman, who had been charged with leading up Godolphin since John O’Shea announced he was parting ways with the global racing giant, will continue as Cummings’ right-hand man.

“Fortunately I have a fantastic team to work with. Darren Beadman, who will continue as assistant trainer, has had a great relationship with my family and rode two Melbourne Cup winners for my grandfather,” Cummings told the Godolphin website.

“We have some outstanding new horses coming through and a very strong group of older horses who will be seen again in the spring.”

Cummings will have his name besides five runners at Warwick Farm including speedy two-year-old filly Manicure, lightly-raced mare Philosophy, the enigmatic Old North as well as talented three-year-olds Ghostly and Nonpareil.

Cummings is a surname synonymous with racing with the 29-year-old a fourth generation trainer having honed his craft through the guidance of his grandfather, the legendary Bart Cummings.

"I have been very fortunate in my career so far to have learnt my trade from some of the best in the business and I will be forever grateful to the fantastic and loyal owners that have supported me in my career so far,” Cummings said.

“It is truly an honour to be asked to join the Godolphin team as the head trainer in Australia and I am very grateful to His Highness Sheikh Mohammed for the opportunity.’’
