BART Cummings, regarded by many as the greatest trainer in Australian racing history, died early on Sunday morning. He was 87.

    JARRYD Hayne was made to wait until the second half before giving a glimpse of his skills in San Francisco’s pre-season loss to Denver.

    THE legend of Bart Cummings, even if justified on the scoreboard and nothing else, made him horse racing’s Bradman and his death is monumental.

    CRAIG Bellamy has slammed the NRL’s scheduling as a “joke” and believes it has created an uneven competition heading into the finals.

    HALL of Fame trainers Lee Freedman and David Hayes have paid tribute to Bart Cummings and declared he was “a one-off” in a tough and uncompromising trade
