Philip Kirby Racing

Racehorse Trainer based at Richmond, North Yorkshire

Wednesday 4th July

The heat is on! It’s 6 am ride out time and here is first lot as we are doing every morning until the weather turns 🌞 We have also given a lot of our summer jumpers a break, and a few of the flat horses and we’re coming back all guns blazing Autumn into Winter. We’ve got our biggest team of young bumper horses yet, and with a few of them home bred it makes it even more exciting.

The Authorized 2 year old colt stretching out

Simon has cracked straight on with breaking in the Gaspara x Shirocco 3 year and he has been in the lunge pen for the last couple of days and taking it all well.

Here are a few of our young bumper team:

Show Promise unraced 4 year old

Rococco 3 year old  by Shirocco

Abington Park 3 year old  by Passing Glance

un named Mount Nelson 3 year old

Gaspara x Shirocco 3 year old

Iridescent Resdev 3 year old by Monmartre

Jurist 4 year old by Lawman

Andorn’s Legacy 3 year old ( flat option too)

Master Newton  3 year old by Master Craftsman

4 year old by Dragon Pulse

Master Newton – hails from a black type flat family but we’ve saved this big grey for Junior Bumpers

We have seen a couple of decent efforts the last few days – Trust Thomas making an excellent debut for us, back to form fora good second at Cartmel over fences for Tommy. He jumped well and we’re looking forward to his next outing based on this performance.

Also running well yesterday was The Resdev Way, ending up 4th  in a close finish at Hamilton but looking the likely winner until 50 Yards  out. He hasn’t won on the grass yet but Phil believes it’s only a matter of time.

We have just the one horse entered up – Bertie Blake is in at Market Rasen on Sunday but it’s a red hot weekend forecast and we’re taking a watching brief for now to see what the ground will be after watering.

This week saw little True Ballew go to her new home with Emily from Great Ayton. She wasn’t cut out for racing but we have no doubt she is going to make a fantastic pleasure horse for her, and it’s a permenant position .
