Training racehorses is a hobby for Cameron Crockett but it is a pastime that could be rewarded with a city victory at Canterbury on Wednesday.

Mudgee-based Crockett is bringing in-form Are You Sure to Sydney, confident the enigmatic six-year-old, with Nash Rawiller on board, will not find a more winnable metropolitan race than the More Than Ready Handicap (1900m).

Are You Sure confirmed a future as a stayer with a last-start Wellington Cup win and Crockett is hoping the words of another leading jockey belatedly ring true on Wednesday.

“Hugh Bowman rode him in a race at Warwick Farm about 12 months ago and he said bring this horse back to town and put him over further and he’ll win,” Crockett said.

“It’s taken me about eight to nine months to get his head right before I thought I’d bother to come back again.

“He’s been a difficult horse but he’s got stacks of ability.”

Crockett, 28, is the son of famed horse breaker Max Crockett and he has followed his father into the family business, educating many high-profile thoroughbreds working for Gooree Park Stud.

“I suppose the best horse I broke in was Smart Missile,” Crockett said. “He was pretty good but we never saw the best of him.”

Crockett works a team of eight racehorses but he has no plans to expand his stable despite an impressive strike rate on country tracks.

“My bread and butter is breaking in horses for Gooree,” he said. “Basically if it came down to it and I had to give up one or the other I’d have to give up training.

“The breaking in is where I make the money. You don’t make a real good living out of training horses in the bush.”

Are You Sure is one of four last-start winners hoping to break through at midweek level with Barge And Charge, Resurrect and Winning Ticket also trying to confirm their promising provincial-class form in the city.
