    Background:
    Derek Cruz is the brother of fellow trainer and former champion jockey Tony Cruz. Both are sons of Johnny Cruz, a renowned rider from Hong Kong's amateur era. Cruz was licensed as a trainer in 1991 and his first G1 triumph came in December, 2005, when Natural Blitz shocked most observers by snatching the Hong Kong Sprint. The 2009/10 campaign was something of a breakthrough season for Cruz as he first prepared Good Ba Ba to win a record third successive G1 Hong Kong Mile, then won the inaugural running of the G3 Al Quoz Sprint at the Dubai World Cup meeting at Meydan with Joy And Fun. The 2011/12 season saw Joy And Fun return from a long injury absence to win the HKG1 Chairman's Sprint Prize among a series of top-class efforts. His sons Trevor and Martin train in partnership in Cambridge, New Zealand.
    Notable Race Wins Include:
    Hong Kong Sprint (2005 Natural Blitz), Hong Kong Mile (2009 Good Ba Ba), Chairman's Sprint Prize (2012 Joy And Fun), HKG2 Premier Bowl (2012 Cerise Cherry), HKG2 Sha Tin Vase (1993 Wind Dancer), G3 Al Quoz Sprint (2010 Joy And Fun), HKG3 Premier Bowl (2010 Cerise Cherry), HKG3 Premier Plate (2007 Sir Ernesto), HKG3 Chinese Club Challenge Cup (2009 Joy And Fun), HKG3 Bauhinia Sprint Trophy (2009 Kildare), HKG3 Centenary Vase (1994 Concert Boss), HKG3 Premier Cup (2009 Joy And Fun).
