Philip Kirby Racing

Racehorse Trainer based at Richmond, North Yorkshire

Join us at our New yard

east appletonWe can’t tell you how excited we are to be moving to ‘Green Oaks’ in the Spring of 2016 – its being purpose built with both an an all weather ring gallop and a straight uphill gallop, also a grass gallop being put in place, 3 barns of Internal boxes  and 100 acres for turnout and riding. Its so close to  many tracks and its going to be convenient for everything – even take aways, where we live at Castleton we can’t even get one delivered we are that remote!! We are really looking forward to our first Owners Day at the new yard next Spring.

If you are considering buying a share in a horse with us, and we really do try to make our Partnership Owners feel every bit as involved as our full Owners with unlimted stable and gallop visits and a free badge at the races virtually every time –  two to consider now are ‘Tara Time’ and ‘Enlighten Me’  – a Christmas present to yourself or your Partner!


‘Tara Time’ is on offer  11 MONTHS TERM for new Owners

1st December – 31st October at £1145.00

Plus a Buying in share price, set when she was originally purchased of £375 for 5%

Of course she is worth far more now if she went to the sales, but we always keep the share price the  same.  Once you buy into one of our regular  Partnership horses you only need to pay the Training fee once a year of £1250 thereafter for 12 months. All in, no extras.

Tara (by top NH sire Kayf Tara)  made a highly exciting debut at Perth in August – drawing well clear of the field and  just being touched off by ‘Carinena’ who has won her novice hurdle well since , and she had the benefit of 3 previous runs that day and we had a long trip to Perth! Tara Time is without doubt a top class mares prospect and her goal is the listed AINTREE MARES BUMPER in April with a proposed further run for experience beforehand in March. When Adam got off her at perth, his first words were ‘She’ll win next time’….

The scopey looking mare TARA TIMEyear old!

The second share to consider is the yearling filly ‘ENLIGHTEN ME’ by debut sire ‘Sir Prancealot’ out of Tea Chest, who has bred two really quality horses from her first two runners – we have watched the chestnut colt MINT CHAI in action this year in Ireland and he has won 2 PLUS 10 races as well as three seconds in top maidens. Her first runner won over here and Australia, with rpr’s in the high 80’s .

‘Enlighten Me’ is currently being broken in, she has a real 2 year olds

pedigree being by an exceptionally precocious fast 2 year old, what an exciting prospect she is for next Spring and Summer and with so many  flat tracks close by to our new base  – Ripon, Thirsk, Catterick, York (lets hope!), Redcar,  etc we can stay as local as we want. At £1000 for an ‘all in share’ for the full year she represents excellent value for money, although larger shares can be bought if wished. The terms of her contract means she goes to the sales at the end of the season, and if she can show anything like the form of her brothers then you should see a return on your purchase. Give this share to your wife or partner as a special Christmas Gift  and you can both enjoy some flat racing together next year – Spouses of course welcome in the paddock too!

Watch her on this summer video – she is the one with the white socks and is always in front of the pack! A beautiful, quality filly who is a real mover

These are not the only horses we have for sale, please see our FOR SALE page for full details. These include MOSHE who is a young high class flat handicapper – he runs on Monday and the first  prize of £12,000 + could go a long way towards his purchase price of £15,000. He was 2nd on debut for us two weeks ago in a good race.
