Local Hero: Robert Cole


Hear an inspiring story about Robert Cole — who has happily been a patient for 4 years. Robert has an interesting past as a famed horse jockey and now has created a fulfilling life at Escondido Post Acute Rehab.

He was too young in the US to be a jockey, so he left the country to pursue his dream. By age 14, he was in Australia attending professional jockey school. By age 16, he was back in the US and running races. By the end of his career, he won over 600 races. 

Now he is a patient and happily calls Escondido his home. He even met his wife in the Center. Today they live a happy life together at Escondido Post Acute Rehab.
