In the pantheon of Australian sporting icons, James Bartholomew 'Bart' Cummings AM stands alongside Sir Donald Bradman. Arguably Australia's greatest ever horse trainer, for over five decades he's been at the very top of his profession, yet the man himself remains a fascinating and intriguing mystery. Now, for the first time, he tells his extraordinary story - a story that will truly stop the nation.
In 'Bart: My Life', he recounts his story from his early years as his father's apprentice to his incredible tally of 12 Melbourne Cup wins. From the highs of the racetrack to the lows of suspensions and near bankruptcy, Bart shares his unique perspective on an extraordinarily long period of Australian racing.
