The race takes its name from former Supreme Court Justice William Crockett. He was a long time Vice-Chairman of the Moonee Valley Racing Club and sadly passed away in 2007.

The Crockett Stakes was the third win in Black Caviar’s career and her first as a three-year-old. That season, she went on to win her first Group race, claiming victory in the Danehill Stakes and Australia Stakes.

No trainer has been able to establish consistent success in the race, however, jockey Michael Rodd did win the Crockett Stakes three times in a row in the early 2010s. He first saluted on Dutchy’s Lass in 2010, before winning onboard Kneeling and Angelic Light.

2019 Crockett Stakes winner Broadwayandfourth clocked 1:11.81 in her victory, however, the fastest time 1200m time in the race over the last 20 years belongs to Blondie. In 2017, she ran 1:10.10 to score the win.
