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.

AIDAN Holt was praised for his cool ride on Pinch River, who scored a last gasp win in the Bundamba Plate at Ipswich on Saturday.

Holt elected to go back to the inside soon after turning and was able to secure the necessary right run to win.

"I thought Aidan may have made an error, but it was the right move," trainer Rob Heathcote said.

" I said in the pre-race plans that there may be plenty of speed and don't be frightened to take the trail even though he has won 3 races leading" !

Pinch River may run again at the Sunshine Coast in a fortnight, but Heathcote will bide his time before locking it in but more than likely he will spell.

"He's done a pretty good job. To win four races as a two-year-old is a first class effort.

"He was just a bit fresh (when run over late after 3 weeks between runs) last week and then was a bit more tougher to the line this time. It was always my biggest worry coming back to 1100m.

"I think he's going to be a 1400m horse later on with his ability to take the trail and sprint late but we will work that out when he comes back in next preparation."

Pinch River ($3.60) scored by a neck to Divine Service ($12) with a short neck to Veloz ($7.50) in third position.

Heathcote added, " he has to grow and strengthen some more to go to the next level but if he can find a few more lengths next time in, he may even be worthy of a trip interstate for a feature 3 year old race" ?

It is a superb effort to win 4 city metropolitan races as a juvenile so his future looks rosy at this stage.
