Precedence will kick off a campaign aimed at a fifth Melbourne Cup bid when he resumes on a special day for the Cummings family at Randwick.

Saturday’s Chelmsford Stakes meeting will be dedicated to celebrating the life of legendary trainer Bart Cummings who died in his sleep on Sunday aged 87.

As part of the tribute to the national icon who trained 268 Group One winners and won a record 12 Melbourne Cups, Precedence will lead the field out for the Group Two Chelmsford Stakes.

The 10-year-old is now under the sole care of James Cummings who trained in partnership with his famous grandfather during Bart’s latter years.

Tim Clark will reunite with the horse who he last rode in a race seven years ago.

“He’s on another Cups preparation and he looks fantastic, he appears to have been working well and it’s a nice starting point,” Clark said.

“Hopefully it will lead to bigger things to come.”

Clark rode James Cummings’s first winner since Bart’s death when Nazir won at Canterbury on Wednesday.

And he is in no doubt the future of Leilani Lodge is in safe hands.

“Preparing that horse first-up, 1580 (metres) it’s a great effort in itself and I’m sure there’ll be plenty more to come,” Clark said.

“Obviously it’s still quite raw at the moment but I’m sure every winner James gets is going to have special meaning.”

James Cummings will also be represented at Randwick by Ruling Dynasty, a horse who holds a Melbourne Cup nomination.

Jockeys will wear black armbands as a mark of respect for Bart Cummings while the third race has been renamed the JB Cummings AM Ming Dynasty Quality.
