Queensland trainer Robert Heathcote has decided against bringing his talented young filly Tomboy to Melbourne for the Spring Racing Carnival this year.

While Heathcote believes Tomboy is capable of partaking in a spring campaign, he feels that she will be bigger and better next time around.

“We’ve run out of time for Melbourne with her, but I have no doubt she is destined for some black type,” Heathcote said.

Tomboy matured slowly, and for that reason has only had eight race starts.

“Some horses you take the plastic wrapper off and away they go, but not this filly,” Heathcote said.

“She’s a big, rangy girl and is one of those horses that has had to learn to race to a degree.

“I’m very pleased to say she’s become a bit of a revelation.”

A winner at her last three runs, Tomboy is nominated for this Saturday’s Total Sports Travel QTIS Three-Year-Old Handicap at Eagle Farm.

“She’s hit the line well at her last two runs and is racing with real enthusiasm and hopefully she can keep it going on Saturday,” Heathcote said.

Last start winners Simmering and Solzhenitsyn will also not be joining Heathcote down south for a spring campaign this year.

“They’ve both done well and we expect them to be competitive again” Heathcote said.

“They’re also not going to be ready to go south this time, but that is not to say they won’t be part of our plans next year.”

Heathcote has claimed his third consecutive Queensland trainers’ premiership title this season after the success of his Brisbane stable continued.

“It would be great to get a few more winners before the end of the season, but I’m over the moon to win three titles in a row.

“Not only that, we’ve had a great winter carnival as well.

“We have also had success on the bigger stages at Randwick and Flemington.”
