Philip Kirby Racing

Racehorse Trainer based at Richmond, North Yorkshire

Wednesday 30th June

Shares are now available to buy in this beautiful 3 year old filly that Phil bought at the Goffs UK Store Sale – its a UNIQUE Partnership with a ‘no strings attached’ breeding option – for the rules and regs of the Partnership please email – also pricing details are now on the FOR SALE page.

We had ‘Rock of leon’ at Cartmel today and he ran well enough for 4th, just finding this unusual track a little tough on his first visit there, he must have wondered what was going on, its the National Hunt equivalent of Chester. He’s been winning in selling company but needs a bit of respite from the handicapper back in this sphere.

Yesterday we had ‘Sincereley Resdev’ running well for 2nd at Redcar, stepping up on his first attempt at a staying trip and he can go on from here, he looks a useful stayer in the making. Jaycol’s Star was hampered at a crucial time when staying on nicely on his seasonal debut.

Our seven horses on the end stables had an unusual visitor at tea time and there were some very interested heads looking over the doors! Mukkadram colt nearest camera.

No runners tomorrow but a busy day nonetheless with a full yard being ridden out and several ‘breakers’ just getting ridden away nicely. Now trotting and about to learn to canter are Abingdon Park & The Authorized colt ‘Tonto’ – and first trot today was ‘Robin des Chapp’ who looked big and impressive coming up the gallop steadily with Henry. This half brother to Lady Buttons is every bit as big as recentley retired ‘Transient Bay’.

As promised yesterday here is ‘Part 2’ of our look at some of our retired horses doing well in their second careers –

Chloe’s Image with Beth Hutchinson – climbing up the ranks affiliated dressage and excelling at showing too. Every time she goes out she seems to bring back a red rosette and she was a Winter Regional Final Dressage winner.

Elspeth’s Boy – graces many County Show rings in the North of England with his dedicated Owner Shirley Errington

Cavalieri looking smart for his caring Owner, Jayne Karen

Man in Black – now called Johnny, having a lovely time hacking in Scotland with Owner Liz Jones and her husband

Word Of Warning with Clare Poole as well as King’s Grey – excelling at The ROR challenge series

Call it On – schooling nicely with his Owner Lori Gillies ahead of his showing debut shortly

Shawni with ‘What’s Up Walter’ who is a really steady and sensible 4 year old and is proving the perfect horse for her.

Cleve Cottage – now starting to go BE Eventing andf enjoying himself after hunting this winter with Emma Hauxby
