sassaLUCA Cumani is one of British racing’s leading trainers, having enjoyed top-class success all over the world. Cumani has successfully overseen the careers of many great racehorses, achieving multiple Classic triumphs at home and abroad.

Born and raised in Italy, racing was in his blood as the son of champion amateur jockey Elena and champion trainer Sergio Cumani. He followed in both of their footsteps emulating first his mother and then his father. He was drawn to England in the mid-1970’s obtaining the position of assistant trainer to Henry Cecil.

Here Luca began a tie with Newmarket that exists to this day. He acquired the historic Bedford House Stables in 1976 in his own name and a ceaseless supply of winners has been the result.
