Philip Kirby Racing

Racehorse Trainer based at Richmond, North Yorkshire

Wed 6th July

“Hi” from the 2yr old boys, Left to right – George, Chico, Mozart, Albert and Boris. Life is good!!

Runners today are all at Catterick – 2.20 is Lily In The Jungle looking to go one better with Jockey Harrison Shaw following their 2nd together last time out. At 3.20 we have Queenmambo who can hopefully continue with her improving form after her great run at Chester with Tom Eaves on board again. Lastly its Fircombe Hall at 5.20, also coming here off the back of a great close finishing 2nd last time out with Kevin Stott. Good luck to owners The Well Oiled Partnership, Fdc Holdings & Roofing Consultants Group and The RedHotGardogs respectively.

Tomorrows runners…

First Blood runs in the Amateur handicap with Henry Newcombe at Doncaster.

Lord Torranaga and Mr McCall head to Carlisle for the 1m3f h’cap.

All our runners details can be found on the ‘entries’ tab above.

Billian ready to party!

Amongst our runners from last week we had PKR Club horse Billian as our first runner of this flat season. A good effort for a close finishing 5th with the jockey reporting he was maybe a little too free early on. He has a great support army in his club with lots of great comments on our fb page following his run and more requests to join his crew, top job Billian!

The yard has been busy filling up over the past few days or so with many of our winter jumpers on their way back in off of their hols including stalwarts of the yard Niven, Top Ville Ben and Whoshotthesheriff.

A firm fav of many, the lovely Niven – here with Carolyn

Working away behind the scenes we have Toby Pedley our farrier of many years who is competing at The Great Yorkshire Show next week in the farrier section – good luck to him, and also to Pippa and the girls with their ponies – details of who and what to follow!!!

Last Thursday Phil had a rare day away from the racers and took daughter Indy to The Royal Norfolk Show with pony Alfie. It was a successful trip with the prized Golden Ticket to qualify for The Horse Of The Year Show. Big well done to Indy for keeping Phil in order for the day! Below is the pic they sent, so much excitement it blurred the photo!!

….and to finish off we have a pic of Amazing King. Those of you not new to us will need no introduction to him, our first licensed winner back in Feb 2008, he went on to win 10. Now 18yrs old he will grow old gracefully (and fat!) staying here with us, a very special Kirby horse.
