Welcome To Robert Heathcote Racing

Hello and welcome to the website for Brisbane’s premiership winning trainer, Robert Heathcote. Please use this site to become acquainted with my facilities and my staff based at Eagle Farm. I am always in regular contact with my owners either by email or with a phone call to keep you updated on the progress of your horse. Please contact me for any relevant information on my current training rates and stable availability on 0418 602 433.

Perhaps you are considering getting involved in a new race horse, either as a first time owner or your current horse is too slow and you want to ‘upgrade to a newer model’, just contact me on the provided tabs or my mobile. You may wish to join a partnership or you and some friends would like us to get a race horse for you. It can be a daunting task getting involved in a racehorse without experience so we will take away the hassles and make it as affordable and convenient as possible. It’s essential that experts with a proven record be a part of the yearling selection process and our record has stood up to the test. There are contact tabs on this home page to contact me and find out more information. Thank you and I look forward to being in contact with you. Kind Regards Robert.

Way back in the 1980s I met a young Canadian couple, Ahne and Phil Ridley on one of my many European Tours when I was a tour manager. They became close lifelong friends and for the past 16 years they have lived and worked as teachers at the prestigious American School of Dubai.
I had the pleasure of having Phil and their daughter Julia join us for the amazing Dubai experience that was the Dubai World Cup . The following link will , in some way enable you to share in what was an amazing night .
Buffering sure is a wee champion and certainly climbed hi Everest again on Saturday night. What a journey he has taken us on. See the below video in some small way, it may help you  understand what a wonderful night it was.

Robert Heathcote’s underrated galloper Hopfgarten returned to his preferred track of Eagle Farm on Saturday with a blistering win in the $100,000 Listed Wayne Wilson Mile (1600m).

Hopfgarten ($9.50), ridden by Damian Browne, was sooled forward from a wide barrier and landed behind the leader Hi Son ($101) in what was a moderately run affair.

The five-year-old son of Mossman quickly took over in the straight and surged away for a 2-1/2 length win, his fifth at the track and 11th overall.

Peter and Paul Snowden’s Pajaro ($6.50) claimed second from a wall of chasers, with the Chris Waller-trained Amovatio ($9.50) a long head away in third.

"Damian (Browne) seized the initiative today and once he was cruising along outside the leader I was pretty confident,” Heathcote said.

"His run two weeks ago (Group III Lord Mayors’ Cup) was super, he never had a lot of luck being caught wide but things went to plan today for Damian Browne.

"It’s good to be back, congratulations to the club (Brisbane Racing Club), it’s been a tough couple of years for everyone concerned but we’re here today, the sun’s shining and it’s a super day’s racing.”

With career prizemoney now almost at $600,000, Hopfgarten is among the top echelon of gallopers in Heathcote’s stable and will get the chance to add another feature to his CV in the Listed Spear Chief Handicap (1500m) back at Eagle Farm in two weeks’ time. “We had no luck during the Melbourne spring but he has bounced back with a couple of Listed wins this prep”, a delighted Heathcote said.

The $5 favourite Religify was afforded every chance by Brazilian hoop Joao Moreira but could only finish sixth, just over three lengths from the winner but the reality was that Hopfgarten gave nothing else a chance.
