Brett Crawford is a horse racing trainer with one of our horses under his care. He is a mighty fine conditioner with a fantastic record of success. See more about him below.
Brett Crawford’s record of success stems from his reign as the private trainer for Mrs Sabine Plattner where he notched up 30 graded winners in 8 years, including 7 at Group 1 level – namely: LAISSERFAIRE (AUS) winning three Gr1 races, ANGUS winning the Gr1 J&B Met, BAD GIRL RUNS winning two Gr1 races including the Gr1 Paddock Stakes, JAMAICAN DREAM, MY CHOICE, NOTHING BUT SILK.
It was in October 2009 when he decided to go it alone and open up his own yard and he has never looked back. Adding another nineteen Grade 1 success to his bow, including: JACKSON, THUNDER DANCE, ELUSIVE GOLD, FUTURA, WAVIN FLAG, GULF STORM, CAPTAIN AMERICA, WHISKY BARON, EDICT OF NANTES, SAIL SOUTH, LADY OF THE HOUSE, AND BOLD RESPECT.
This impressive record didn’t come out of the blue, in fact Brett had a great apprenticeship as a young trainer. Zimbabwean born, he moved to South Africa as a teenager and has assisted top trainers such as Mike De Kock, Eric Sands and Dennis Drier.
It is easy to send an exciting young yearling to a trainer with a pedigree like this and we are rather optimistic about what the future holds for this partnership.
