Hogan: Bart Cummings was a man of great humour
REMEMBER those you meet on the way up, you may need them on the way down.
These are the words of horse trainer Bart Cummings which Federal MP Kevin Hogan will remember fondly.
While many people will remember him as a sporting legend, Mr Hogan has a more personal story to tell.
Cummings was Mr Hogan's second cousin, and his mum's first.
According to the Federal Member for Page, he was a man of great humour and fun to be around.
One of his favourite of Cummings' many quotes was "I'm just an ordinary working fella having a bit of luck."
"As a kid when visiting Glenelg, I have great memories of walking around his stables filled with Melbourne Cup winners," Mr Hogan said.
"He is a great sporting legend of our country."
"My thoughts and prayers are with Val, and children Anthony, Margaret, Sharon, Anne-Marie, John and their families."
