Racing from Eagle Farm on Wednesday threw up two really promising Glenlogan Park bred youngsters that should pay to follow closely in the coming months.
The first of those is the Rob Heathcote trained Jet Spur 2YO Heza Jetsetter – who had a big, flashing red light on him when registering a luckless 3rd on debut for jockey Glen Colless.
"Glen came back in and was just shaking his head," Rob Heathcote said. "He is not always full of praise for his mounts but to say he was impressed would be an understatement. There is no question that he should have won, and he should have won clearly. He got his head up just as the barriers were opening and, as a result, he jumped a long way behind them. He then had nowhere to go until well inside the final 200m and, even though he never really got clear galloping room at any stage, he made up many, many lengths and finished right on the heels of the first two across the line. I have such a high opinion of him that I will now throw him in the deep end on a Saturday 2YO Race and hope he can get the prize. If he does, and he comes through the race well, I will have no hesitation in setting him for one of the carnival races. He has plenty of potential."
Another Glenlogan sired runner from the Heathcote stable that looks destined for bigger things is the well-bred Bribie – a Show A Heart full brother to G1 winner Woorim. Bribie came from well off them yesterday to register a good, solid victory and Rob will now head him towards better races.
"There is no doubt he has enormous scope for improvement," Rob said.. "However he still has not really learnt what it is all about. Mentally he is still very new but, once he learns to switch on I am sure he is going to work his way through the grades very easily. Damian (Browne) came back and said that he got to the front too early and then just switched off. We will now send him to Saturday grade and I am sure that the 1400m will suit much better than the sprinting distances."
