Welcome to Philip Kirby Racing
A dreadfully sad day at Newcastle following the loss of beautiful December Second.
A very sad day for all of us here & his Owner David who was rightly so proud of this top class stayer. He was a kind & genuine horse who was admired by so many. There is always this element of risk involved with horses doing any sport, but it never gets much easier to get over. Horse welfare always comes first here at Green Oaks and we must remember that racehorses have a wonderful life compared to many Equines in other countries.
What a Season it was for LADY BUTTONS
2 listed wins, a Grade 2 win and a Grade 1 4th from 5 runs. She is an absolute superstar

Watch our fantastic video of the yard created by Max Bradshaw – we couldn’t be more proud of our facilities here for horses and Owners, and we hope you’ll agree when you see this superb footage from Max’s drone …
Its been 12 years now since Phil set out training in 2007 and has since grown into one of the North’s leading trainers with a fantastic team behind him and some lovely horses we get the privilege of training. We hope you enjoy looking through our regular photos, videos and news from the heart of the action at the yard, and from on the track.
If you’re interested in ownership please visit the For Sale tab to view information on horses with shares still available, including prices and pictures. We also have a Partnerships page which will take shape over the coming weeks, getting involved in one of our partnership horses is a great way to begin your journey in racehorse ownership. The Partnership owners have a PRIVATE page for direct videos and photos/news of their horses too. Get regularly updates, visit the yard at anytime and watch your horse run at the races with fellow partnership owners for an affordable amount.
Our entries tab will you take you to our Racing Post profile where you will be able to see our entries and declarations for the next 5 days, with news on runners, results and daily updates shown on our blog. Meet the team behind the scenes, view our horses in training as well as our past horses enjoying new careers out of racing. Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter & Instagram, and give our Facebook page a like to ensure you don’t miss a beat!
This video may interest you if you have been considering ownership at whatever level – we cater for shares as small as 2.5% up to 100% sole ownership.
And below is our most recent ‘Past Horses’ video of some special four legged friends who have left hoofprints on our hearts.
All our Ex racers are either re-trained and rehomed from here or found genuine homes where they can be correctly re-schooled and lead an active and useful life – some excelling in competitive disciplines like eventing, showing or point to pointing, others happy to enjoy hacking round the countryside. We are very proud of our re-homing record…and although not all of the horses who have left us are on here, its a very good selection! If you have a horse who doesn’t feature pleases send us some up to date photos, we love to hear about them. Some of our more recent ones that have left are awaiting photos and this will be updated on our ex racers page.
