Philip Kirby Racing

Racehorse Trainer based at Richmond, North Yorkshire

Wednesday July 1st

A scorcher! lauren hoses Prince (Improved) down after exercise...

A scorcher today with temperatures up to 30 degrees. ! Lauren hoses Prince (Improved) down after exercise…while the Yorkshire Post photographer takes a shot.

Both horses and riders were hot and bothered today with hats and body protectors being mandatory wear even when the temperatures soar. The horses all had a good hose down after their work and we got most of it out the way before it really began to bake. Early on we had the Yorkshire Post visisting to take photos and vidoes of Brain Toomey and his comeback ride, King’s Grey. Brian popped him over a couple of fences  and then both he and Phil gave interviews up on the low Moor. Brian has a huge media following since his Licence has been re-issued, and the Racing World will be watching intently when he lines up for his first ride back.  Here are some photos from the morning…

C&C Transport brought Lady Chapp and her Robin des Champs foal back from Ireland and Rathbarry Stud today,  and we brought them on to Dibble Bridge this afternoon. ‘Robin’ (colt foal) is better than we even expected – a tall, beautifully made colt with a big efortless stride. You can imagine him at the Festival in four years time! He looks the real deal for sure. The other mares and foals were very nosey checking out the new arrivals. Just Pickworth with her Scorpion colt to come back now, we are keeping everything crossed she scans in foal this time.
