Robert Heathcote is set to end a good week at the yearling sales by emerging from his annual mid-summer hiatus with five top chances at the Sunshine Coast.

Heathcote is second in both the metropolitan premiership with 36 wins and on the state ladder with 54 wins for the season.

He is traditionally quiet during the Gold Coast carnival where he again failed to visit the winners’ circle in three Saturdays of racing.

“It is well documented that my horses aren’t suited by the Gold Coast track,” Heathcote said.

“It turns the whole way and that just doesn’t seem to suit them.”

“I never have much luck there and I am always quiet around Magic Millions time.”

Heathcote is however looking to the future with the Magic Millions meeting worth $10 million next year.

He picked up seven yearlings at the Magic Millions Sales this week including two close relatives to his Group One star Buffering.

Heathcote is the leading trainer at the Sunshine Coast this year and admits he has targeted the track.

“I think they deserve plenty of kudos. It is the fairest track in Queensland and they have done a good job maintaining it,” he said.

Heathcote will saddle up Sea Red, Excellantes, Treatmelikealady, Magic In Motion and Bewhatyouwannabe.

“Sea Red is very good fresh but she is probably one run off being at her top. At least she seems to have come back in a better humour this campaign as she could be a real handful,” Heathcote said.
