Robert trains at Bottisham Heath Stud, which provides an excellent privately owned base for Robert and his wife, Ghislaine, along with their son, Alex and daughter, Kara.
He says: "We have had some fantastic seasons with plenty of highlights to talk about. However horses most notably to mention, PROHIBIT gaining us our first Group 1 winner in the 2011 Royal Ascot, Kings Stand Stakes. JWALA winning in great style in the Group 1, Coolmore Nunthorpe Stakes at York in 2013. Having seen her through her entire career from a yearling this was particularly special. KINGSGATE NATIVE was a great success, producing some consistent performances in Group company, including landing the Group 2, Temple Stakes at Haydock Park and the Achilles Stakes at Haydock Park in 2015 at the grand old age of ten! He went on to land further victories and was retired to The British Racing School at the end of 2016. INTRINSIC won the always highly competitive Stewards Cup at Glorious Goodwood in August 2014 for us. He has since retired to stallion duties under the guidance of Hedgeholme Stud. GOLDREAM was a sensation in 2015, winning the Group 3, Palace House Stakes at Newmarket in May. He then went on to win the Group 1, King’s Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot and another Group 1 at Longchamp at the October Arc meeting, the Prix de L’Abbaye. He is very special horse for us, not just for his Group successes but also having unearthed him at the horses in training sales a few seasons prior. It certainly appears that we have an affinity with OASIS DREAM progeny! – PROHIBIT, JWALA, INTRINSIC, JUSTINEO and GOLDREAM. PRINCE OF LIR and OUTBACK TRAVELLER will be forever remembered for gaining us a double at the 2016 Royal Ascot meeting! Other exciting horses that we have enjoyed training and have had success over the last few seasons domestically in the UK and abroad at the highest levels have been, RAUCOUS, STRIVE FOR GLORY, VISIONARY, ENCORE D’OR, GLOBAL APPLAUSE, ORNATE, SPIRIT QUARTZ, MONSIEUR JOE, IFFRANESIA, LUI REI, FOREVER PHOENIX, BINIOU, CANADIAN DANEHILL and HIGH SPICE."
Bottisham Heath Stud is completely self-contained, peaceful, and provides a welcoming atmosphere for all owners. It is ideally suited to keeping the horses happy and helping them to achieve their full potential, with Robert’s expertise of course!
