Philip Kirby Racing

Racehorse Trainer based at Richmond, North Yorkshire

Sad News

We’re very sad today to report that the Darren & Annaley Yates horses have left us, but wish to make clear there has been no falling out, and we wish them every success with them in the future. Racing is an expensive sport and due to a lack of results with their flat runners  they have taken the decision to move them all to a new Trainer. It’s a major blow to lose the exciting ‘Interconnected’ & the hugely talented ‘Blaklion’ pictured, along with their other lovely horses, but these things happen and we will continue to look forward to what we hope will be another significant National Hunt Winter for us after our best ever season in 2018/19 This is not a place for negative comments, and genuinely there has been no fallout, but we wished to make clear what had happened before anything is misinterpreted or reported incorrectly.

We’ll certainly miss this lovely face over the door! The gorgeous superstar Blaklion who frustratingly missed his chance in the National due to an old injury flare up, but heads to his new yard a sound and happy horse, and we hope he gets his chance for glory in 2020.
