Robert Cowell Racing News

Home News . . . Join Us for 2018 . . .

It has been a mixture of weather conditions here at Bottisham Heath Stud this week . . . We have had snow, frost, wind, rain, hail, and to cheer us all from time to time a spot of sunshine! . . . What ever the weather our dedicated team of staff carry on with the hard work here at home.

It may be a quiet time of year in regards to runners on the winter all-weather circuit, but the yard is full steam ahead with all the new additions to the team in the style of the 2016 born yearlings . . . Its such a joy to see the new arrivals step down off the horseboxes as they join us from the sales or broken in from our pre-trainer.

We have an healthy amount of new blood in so far to make up our two year department for 2018 . . . Over the coming month or two they will start to be named – Which is always interesting!  In the meantime they are getting to grips with life in training.  This year they have very high calibre lead horses to show them the rope in the form of top class ex-racehorses for us, PROHIBIT and INTRINSIC.  They have both been showing them a thing or two on how it is done here at Robert Cowell Racing . . .

PROHIBIT resides here on the stud and has stepped out of retirement for a few months, which he is thoroughly enjoying!  He is firm favourite with us all, with a gentle nature and all that he achieved for us during his racing career.

INTRINSIC headed south to us for a few months away from his Stallion duties at Hedgeholme Stud, Co. Durham.  Mentally and physically this time does him the world of good.  He is such a wonderful horses to have in the yard.  He has now returned to prepare for covering duties as of February, for fee in 2018 of £1,750.  He can be viewed at www.hedgeholmestud.com or www.intrinsic.fyi

There is so much to look forward to for the 2018 season . . .
