Warren Cameron, a top harness horseman and a leading driver of the mid-20th century passed away on May 25 at Astor, Florida.

In the 1960s and '70s, Cameron directed one of the top stables based at Delaware Valley tracks, Brandywine Raceway and Liberty Bell Park.

Cameron was trainer-driver of a number of powerful horses owned by Washington, D.C. horseman, Dr. Max Fischer and attorney Norman Diamond. In addition to his large stable, Cameron was a first-call catch driver, and usually drove horses conditioned by Hall of Famer Stanley Dancer when sent to race at DelVal tracks.

The outstanding Free-For-All pacer, Direct Scooter, top class pacers Mighty Ad , Luna's Bullet, and one of the standout trotters of the time, Rocket Speed, were among several dozen noted upper-class horses in the Cameron barn.

Warren and his brother, Gary, also a trainer-driver, were sons of Hall of Fame trainer-driver Del Cameron.

Following retirement from active competition, Cameron lived at Chester Springs, Pa. and also trained horses at Pinehurst, N.C.

Cameron was preceded in death by a son, Doug Cameron. He is survived by his wife, Elaine, of Astor, Fla., and sons Jeff and Greg Cameron, also of Astor, both formerly harness horsemen, and five grandchildren.
