Crozier, John (1843–1916)

Mr. John Crozier, who was well known in Australian racing circles since the early seventies, died suddenly on Thursday. Mr. Crozier was the second son of Mr. John Crozier, M.L.C., of South Australia. He owned the Kirmino Station near Wentworth, until the early eighties when he sold to his brothers, Messrs W. and A. Crozier. After that he lived in Adelaide for several years, and then he bought the famous St. Albans stud and bred thoroughbreds there for a few years. In 1890 he sold St. Albans to Mr. W. R. Wilson and again settled down in Adelaide, where he remained until about ten years ago. Recently he had been living at Murrumbeena. For many years Mr Crozier had raced horses. Probably the best he ever owned was Hamlet, who ran in the name of P. Lewis but was really owned by Mr. Crozier who was then a very young man. Savanaka, First Water, Vakeel, Fulham, Lara, Banker, Gunga Din, Security, and Hortensius were among the horses he owned in later years. When he left Adelaide for the last time Mr. Crozier selected Shipley for Mr. S. Green, and he managed that stud for some.
