Robert Cowell Racing is based at Bottisham Heath Stud, situated just five miles outside of Newmarket. A family owned stud set within 180 acres of post and rail paddocks, with its own private poly track gallop, tranquil walk ways and stabling for 75 horses. Also including starting gates, several Claydon horse walkers, and a large office with owner facilities. It is a beautiful, peaceful and safe environment for horses to be trained in, with the added bonus of ‘time out’ in the paddocks for horses to unwind and relax when needed. As well as this unique setting, we have easy, quick access to the vast array of gallops in Newmarket, the headquarters of horseracing. We truly believe we have the best of both worlds here at Robert Cowell Racing.

We pride ourselves on being an open yard, welcoming owners at any time, with regular updates on training, races and post-race comments. Our team are always available to discuss your horse, advise on purchasing, setting up ownerships and any queries relating to Robert Cowell Racing and Bottisham Heath Stud.
