Trainer Robert Heathcote has spoken out about losing one of his best gallopers, Work The Room, to injury earlier this week.

Work The Room suffered a bowed tendon during routine trackwork at Eagle Farm on Tuesday morning.

The six-year-old gelding was due to run in the Listed Keith Noud Quality in Brisbane this weekend.

“Unfortunately he’s out of the Keith Noud and his future is grim after bowing a tendon while working at Eagle Farm on Tuesday morning,” Heathcote said.

“I’ve spoken to my staff while I’ve been here in New Zealand and it doesn’t sound good.

“I feel gutted especially after he produced such an enormous win last start.”

“From what my staff has told me his career is probably finished but I’ll assess him myself and get another opinion when I get home tomorrow.

“But it looks fairly grim.”

Despite the heartache at losing such a talented galloper from his stables, Heathcote is looking towards Excellantes to bring home the title in Saturday’s Keith Noud Quality.

Excellantes finished second to Work The Room when first-up last start.

“Statistics don’t lie as he’s never won first-up and he’s unbeaten second up,” Heathcote said.

“He’s got a wide barrier which will make things harder for him but he’s got good gate speed to get across.

“It’s a very strong race and it deserves its Listed status.”

Four-year-old Excellantes is among one of Heathcote’s best horses, winning five of his 12 starts and close to $180,000 in prize money.

    Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with
    hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several
    weeks of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?

    First off I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question that I’d like
    to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you
    center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out
    there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?

  7. website design

    information to us, keep it up.

    Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re
    working with? I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something
    completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic
    but I had to ask!

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout
    of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
    better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or
    two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off
    topic but I had to tell someone!
