Master: A Personal Portrait of Bart

Author(s): Les Carlyon


In the world of horse racing, Bart Cummings is the master. His astonishing tally of twelve Melbourne Cup wins arguably makes him the greatest trainer in Australia's history and, by statistical measures, as freakish as Bradman. His laconic wit and indifference to the trappings of wealth and fame have seen him recognised as a national treasure in his own lifetime. He is one of Australia's great characters. Carlyon is Australia's most revered observer of racing. For close to forty years he has known Bart and chronicled his remarkable career. Intimate, personal, informed and captivating - 'The Master' is loaded with stories and characters that reveal much of the character and modus operandi of Bart.
