Philip Kirby Racing

Racehorse Trainer based at Richmond, North Yorkshire

News Tues 14th Nov…

Todays runners…


The Resdev Way

The Resdev Way runs in the first at Huntingdon today and will be hoping to improve on his run at Worcester after jumping out to the right for most of the race. Joining him at Huntingdon is Bohernagore who is up in trip a little to 2m4 which we think will suit him well and we believe he goes there with a good chance. Both runners ridden by Tommy Dowson for owners Resdev and Surefire Racing, good luck to all connections and come home safe.




Hangard heads to the Tattarsalls sales at Cheltenham!



Following his very impressive first time out bumper win at Ayr, Hangard is heading for the Cheltenham Tatts sales where we believe there will be good money for this well bred 5yr old by Black Sam Bellamy for owners Daniel Blake & Phil Kirby. Obviously we would love him to stay with us, but for the money he could achieve, its unfortunately an opportunity not to be missed.

Field antics…


King – Happily having a leg stretch in his retirement.

Amazing King 13yrs young enjoying a canter in his happy retirement. Unfortunately tricky to rehome after a tendon injury to his hock, he is lucky to be one close to the Kirby’s hearts after being one of Phil’s first winning horses under rules back when they trained at Castleton and will no doubt still be here in another 13yrs!!


The boys on their winter break looking for ducks!
