William Crozier (1839–1906)

from Kalgoorlie Western Argus

By the death of Mr. William Crozier, the Australian turf has lost one of its most worthy supporters. The deceased gentleman was the eldest son of the late Hon. John Crozier, and, like his brother (Mr. John Crozier), who went to Melbourne a few days ago to assist in the establishment of a stud farm, he owned some first-class race horses, and won a number of good stakes. The first horse which ran in his name was Speculation, who had many successes in the Wentworth district. Probably the fastest animal which he ever possessed was Lantern, but his best all-round performer was the well-known mare Ruby. Mr. Crozier owned Miss Merlin and Trojan, each of whom won the Hills Railway Stakes and several Melbourne races, while Ballarat, winner of a Hobart Cup, and Mayflower, the dam of Sunflower, also belonged to him. Among his latter-day horses were His Eminence and Nala, and he leased Legend and Al Forkan.
