Welcome to Gavin Cromwell Racing, a trainer with a difference.

Gavin Cromwell is a trainer with a difference. A farrier by trade having shoed Olympian, Gold Cup and Grand National winning horses he took out a Training licence in 2005. His farrier skills are a passion and a trade that he is still very much in demand for by some of the biggest operations in the sport.

Gavin started, like many, as a stable lad with ambition and drive. Experience gained abroad in Australia and at home with the likes of the late and great Dessie Hughes have stood to him when striving for excellence and that shows in his operation with the results he has achieved.

Ever since Dodder Walk landed his first success on the track it’s been a wonderful journey with high profile winners under both codes of flat and jumps racing.

With a handful of horses under Gavin’s trademark attentive care, he landed the 100k Irish Cambridgeshire with Sretaw at the Curragh in 2014. It is no surprise to anyone that knows Gavin that he has continued to prosper and trained Jer’s Girl to win back to back Grade 1 hurdles in 2016. He landed the Welsh Grand National in early 2018 with 13 yo Raz De Maree, a great training performance with the veteran. In October 2018 he landed the Group 2 Prix De Royallieu with Princess Yaiza on Arc weekend in Longchamp for his biggest flat success.

With Espoir Dallen being the new kid on the block who has already won four graded races, there’s a lot to look forward to.

Since starting out, his operation has grown significantly and continues to do so with a superb team in place at the yard in Danestown, Navan, Co Meath.

Perfectly positioned for runners at home and abroad and an appetite to find more success, it’s a perfect opportunity to be involved with one of the hidden gems in the Irish training ranks.

We have three runners tonight at Dundalk. Political Policy is bidding for his 9th win at Dundalk in the 1m4f rated race at 5.00. He’s a bit of a course specialist but his last win at the venue came back in 2016 so it’s been a while between drinks here for him. He has been in good form over hurdles too [...]
