Gavin Cromwell began his career in racing as a farrier. He took out his trainer's licence in 2005 and two years later enjoyed his first winner when Dodder Walk landed a handicap hurdle in the hands of the then 3lbs claiming rider Andrew Lynch at Cork on April 7, 2007. Cromwell scored a notable success with Sretaw (Wayne Lordan) in the Irish Cambridgeshire at the Curragh in August, 2014.
Jer's Girl became a more high-profile winner when giving Cromwell his first Grade 1 success when taking the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Mares Novice Hurdle under Barry Geraghty at Fairyhouse in March, 2016. She added to that at the Punchestown festival the following month when taking the Grade 1 Tattersalls Ireland Champion Novice Hurdle, again with the former champion jockey in the saddle.
Gavin won his biggest race on the Flat when Princess Yaiza landed the Group 2 Qatar Prix de Royallieu at ParisLongchamp on October 6, 2018 and his finest success in the jumping game came at the Cheltenham Festival in March of the following year when he won the Unibet Champion Hurdle with the Mark Walsh-ridden Espoir D'allen in the JP McManus colours.
He recorded a notable Grade 1 double at the Cheltenham Festival in 2021 when winning the Stayers' Hurdle with Flooring Porter and the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle with Vanillier. Stable jockey Jonathan Moore missed both winners through an 11th hour injury and the winning rides went to Danny Mullins and Mark Walsh respectively.
