Success Brewing At Goulburn For Husband & Wife Team

Husband and wife Robbie and Rebecca Brewer have another opportunity to notch a win together with Regal Rojo in the JCF Contracting Benchmark 55 (1400m) at Goulburn on Friday.

Regal Rojo looks the likely leader in the small field of seven and this suits his style of racing, according to his trainer.

“He prefers to lead and it doesn’t look like another horse will take him on which is a positive for him,” Rebecca said.

The Hawkesbury based trainer has trained three career winners with two of those being ridden by her husband.

Robbie has a good understanding of what is needed to win on Regal Rojo’s whose only other victory came by a huge margin on a heavy ten rated track at Bathurst.

When asked if there was any pressure on Robbie to ensure a win, Rebecca replied “always”.

The couple have been married for four years and there is often some light hearted banter if they win, or even if they don’t come out on top.

Training was a hobby for Rebecca at first but in recent years she has expanded the number of horses in work to around seven.

“Regal Rojo is the only horse I own the majority of. I have only had the two horses race for me – the other was Ultimate Wish who had two wins from ten starts,” she said.

The Goulburn track is rated a soft five which won’t bother Regal Rojo, in fact, it’s a case of the wetter the better for the five-year-old.

“He has had five starts on heavy tracks for a win and four placings,” Rebecca said. “He is still a good chance on the soft but I would prefer the track to be wetter.”

Robbie Brewer will also ride debutant Grimoire for Sydney trainer Jason Coyle in the Semco Maiden (1000m).

Goulburn galloper Common Purpose resumes from a break after an encouraging second on debut at his home track when he started favourite.

His trainer John Bateman will also be represented by It’s A Lottery who has been placed at his past three starts and is chasing his first career win.
