Brendan Heeney, a former assistant to trainers Graham Motion and Mike Trombetta, has joined EQUIX as an equine analyst.
A native of Ireland, Heeney is a graduate from the Irish National Stud. He also gained several years of management experience prepping sales yearlings, breaking young horses to saddle, and selecting race prospects, including two years with Eyrefield House Stud in Kildare, where he was assistant manager and assistant trainer.
"Fortunately the resurgent economy and increased popularity in our services has placed EQUIX in a position to continue hiring," said Suzanne Smallwood, EQUIX president. "Brendan exceeds our company standard for professionalism. He offers a diverse background with significant experience in both Europe and America."
"My recent positions as assistant trainer to both Motion and Trombetta have further developed my ability to define the unique characteristics of the most accomplished racehorses," Heeney said. "I am excited to draw on these experiences to identify racing prospects for EQUIX clientele while using the time-tested structural, cardio, and high-speed digital analyses EQUIX has utilized so successfully."
