As well as our popular PKR Racing Club at £69 a year , we run a good selection of in-house 20/25 or 30 Owner partnerships here at Phillip Kirby Racing, and they have proved very popular as they have set annual fees usually split into 6 month segments , prize money at the end of term, with no tie in and all the benefits of full Ownership. You may visit to see your horse whenever you want, and we guarantee a free owners badge, plus usually your guest at half price, when they run. There is a real feel good factor to our partnerships, each one has its own email group set up, its own private Facebook page and YouTube channel. We hold breakfast mornings for owners to get to know each other. Everybody is listed within the partnership, and we do our best to sell your share if you can no longer remain in, taking on the share ourself if it didnt sell. Furthermore the horses are not sold for profit, our aim is to do as well as we can, and they stay running providing they are fit and well. Some of the mare partnerships become broodmares once they are finished. We have just sent Fille d’Avignon to the new stallion LOGICIAN.
THE BUSBY PARTNERSHIP – A five time winner, Busby is great value at £400 plus VAT to buy his share plus the keep fee up until 19th June, our next renewal. There are 20 shares within this partnership and we have a small number available. He is for the flat only, and is currently running on the all-weather, but will hopefully run locally on the turf this spring and summer. He ran well the other day (5th off a break) and we hope he can win again very soon. He has already won over £52,000 in prize money. Busby is a beautiful horse you would be proud to own. He is entered up so straight into the action.
THE FIRST STEPS PARTNERSHIP
Just 4 of 30 shares remain in our National Hunt FOAL Partnership, we are due a colt or filly any day to Coolmore’s Champion Stayer, Order of St George out of Lady Buttons half sister, Lady Westerner. Here she is at stud, she was due on March 12th! All of the owners involved are eagerly awaiting news, we film the birth, and those amazing first days out in the paddock. This will be our second ‘from birth’ partnership, and the first one has been fantastically well received. It costs just £100 to reserve your share, this is a deposit, & providing we get a safe foaling and a healthy foal it is then a further £400 to confirm your share purchase. If you are interested, take a look on our for sale page where you will find a full list of the costs involved right up until the horse comes into training. This is a whole new level of racehorse ownership, being involved from the very start. It also makes a lovely gift for a loved one.
These are just some of the moments enjoyed by the Owners of Chico, in our ‘From Day One Partnership’ – we hope this one will follow suit.
THE NORAH’S LEGACY PARTNERSHIP
Buy a share in ’Boris’ a two year old National Hunt bred gelding by the top-class stallion, Yeats. Here is a video of Boris who was famously fostered by Irish cob mare ’Norah Batty ’ after his real dam Lady Chloe did not have enough milk. He is growing up to be a huge character, and a substantial sort that we are looking forward to running as a four-year-old. There are 20 shares in this partnership. Please see the ‘for sale page’ for full costs.
THE FIRST TO THIRD GENERATION PARTNERSHIP
BATEAU BAY – This is an exciting opportunity, we have just two shares available in this new 3 year old mare that Phil purchased recently at Tattersalls Newmarket.
She is a dual purpose prospect, and she will mature in the field until mid June and then be prepared for an autumn campaign on the flat and eventually to go hurdling. By Nathaniel and a big rangy sort, we are excited about her prospects. She has ran three times for a handicap mark of 59 despite looking immature and weak. She can only improve significantly for time and the summer on her back. We think she could be anything. Please email me for cost details to join this partnership, they are not on the for sale page and have not been advertised.
THE PLATINUM PARTNERSHIP
‘MY STRONG MAN’ (TONTO) – it is free to join this 20 share partnership, there is no ‘buy in’ price, you only pay keep fees for Tonto. All our keep fees are based on £ 1250 a year, which is £3.42 a day.
Now six years old, homebred Tonto has shown glimpses of ability, & would have been in the top three on his last start has he not fallen at the last at Wetherby. He is off a low handicap mark for next National Hunt season and having bred him it means everything to us if we can win with him for the good of the Lady Chloe family . He had a setback early in the winter and we have kept him off as we do not want to go summer jumping with him. He is on the walker and doing very well. He will be prepared for an October return, and we do feel that given a clear run, there are races to be won by this lovely looking horse who handily likes Wetherby. You would enjoy being an owner in Tonto & it is a very nice group that owns him.
