Cameron Crockett has quickly made a name for himself across the industry as an enthusiastic, hardworking trainer whose success on the track speaks for itself. At Kurrinda Bloodstock, we are delighted to partner with Cameron. His expert horsemanship, empathy and responsiveness continue to provide excellent results.
Despite his youth, Cameron’s training methods are uncomplicated, and some could consider his approach “old school”. Cameron works to develop each horse’s natural talents and abilities by taking a hands-on approach. He develops and retrains horses with the patience and determination of a seasoned trainer.
Cameron has grown up learning all aspects of the business. Before obtaining his trainer’s license in June 2011, he worked and rode for his father, renowned horse-breaker and trainer Max Crockett. In addition, Cameron gained valuable experience as the main breaker at the world-class thoroughbred horse stud at Mudgee, Gooree Park.
Cameron believes his success as a trainer is derived from his hands-on approach, an ability to read a horse’s demeanour and temperament and then translate that into a fit and healthy track performance – rather than simply relying on a stopwatch. He aims to recognise every horse’s inherent abilities and differences. With this insight, he produces elite athletes who turn up at the races sound and are willing to perform at their optimum level.
Cameron is focused on ensuring every horse in the stable receives exemplary care. With a personalised training style, he trains each horse individually with a focus on their developmental requirements. This focused approach ensures a commitment to each horse and owner. Cameron is passionate about each thoroughbred he trains and enjoys sharing the success with all involved. At Kurrinda Bloodstock, we believe results and attention to detail are essential in racing, but so too is the passion and enjoyment of working with these magnificent Thoroughbreds. Cameron brings that same enthusiasm and delight to our stables.
Cameron’s team approach ensures he attracts and retains the best possible horse people. He recognises that teamwork and sharing in the success with all involved – staff and owners alike – is what makes for a winning combination.
Successful racing businesses like KBloodstock grow from a community of like-minded individuals working together to make a difference. With a commitment to implementing best-practice racehorse training techniques, individualised hands-on horse training and dedicated systems for every thoroughbred, Cameron is an integral part of the Kbloodstock team.
