Philip Kirby Racing

Racehorse Trainer based at Richmond, North Yorkshire

Further news…(and video)

Living and working on a racing yard is great fun but incredibly long hours, and for the past couple of weeks everyones been putting a lot of extra time in as we seek some new Team members to replace Sam and Stacey…. However, the tide is turning and we are shortly going to be back up and running at full capacity! Phil has been seen riding out just as much as on his tractor, but he was watching this lot below at Pontefract last night – we took three waggons for ‘after racing’ galloping, and they were ridden by Simon, Adam, Tommy, Henry, Nick & Nathan Moscrop  . They all had a good strong piece of work and have come through it well – its nights like these that are late for everyone but can make the difference and hopefully result in some winners.

After a late night at Pontefract, Phil was away at 4 this morning to catch his flight to Ireland, teaming up with Ace Bloodstock’s, John Hanson for a day at Goffs HIT sale. Phil did not return empty handed, the 3 year old dual purpose Kheleyf gelding ‘Richard Strauss’ will be heading to Green Oaks and has a new Owner.

It’ll just be a few hours sleep before an early start and a big days racing at Worcester with Nemean Lion in the Autumn novice hurdle final for a big prize. The Resdev Way joins him on the waggon for a maiden hurdle over 2m 4f, races Sarah previewed earlier today on this mornings new post. With a ( Human!)  bug sweeping the yard our website and fb posts have been a bit thin on the ground but we are on the mend and if not yet firing on all cylinders, firing on more than a few days ago!

As a result we havent reviewed our recent runners, but here are some photos from the races at Wetherby…and a few new ones from the yard the last few days.
