For Sale

UPDATED 14/01/2022

At Philip Kirby Racing we aim to cater for all Owners – whether single/multiple horse Ownership, shares In our own Partnerships with an ‘all in’ price for the years training or perhaps our new PKR Racing Club which we believe is excellent value at £49.00 for a full year .

For details on how to join the new PKR Racing Club please see the menu and the separate Club page.

If you haven’t been involved with Ownership before but would like to email us any questions or discuss the costs involved, please don’t hesitate to email or call Pippa on (07711) 709876 or Phil on (07984) 403558 – if you don’t get through drop us a text rather than a voicemail please – we will respond the same day. You are more than welcome to come and meet Phil and the team, have a look round the yard and see the horses in action before you make



last time out winner, Busby

Due to popular demand for a Pship horse that is ready to run, Phil has offered BUSBY for sale into a 20 Owner Pship – Busby’s form figures over the last 3 months read 31421 –  he is a very consistent flat horse. In total he has run 38 times, has won 7 races, 4 x 2nds and 8 x 3rds for a total of £52,000 to date. His best winning handicap mark is 78  and he is now back up to 67 after winning off 64 last week. We are not pretending he is desperately well handicapped, but he may be good for a couple more wins  this winter season. He is in good form with himself, and seems to enjoy life here at Green Oaks.  He should be running before the end of January for his new Partnership.

Busby is an attractive 6 year old gelding by the top sprinting stallion, KODIAC. Although most of his form is on the all-weather,  he has run on grass a couple of times with thirds at both Beverley and Wetherby, so there is no reason why we could not enjoy running him to some degree in the spring/summer. 

His price per Owner 5% share is £400 plus VAT £100 ( £100 VAT will be returned in the first VAT quarter) . Phil is therefore valuing him at £8000 plus VAT in his current form.

This is a 6 month initial term partnership with prizemoney at the end of the term . There is no tie in. For the up front, all in training costs please enquire.

All new owners receive an Owners pack ( posted or can be collected)  from our office.

All Owners are in an email group to receive regular updates, entries, declarations etc and for facebook users we also have a private Facebook group to access & post views & race day / yard photos / videos. 

We will have a ‘Busby’ Partnership  breakfast morning on January for all Owners in him  to meet. All Owners are also welcome to visit him anytime and watch him on the gallops. Time to be notified to the office the day before. 

We hope that BUSBY is popular, he is a friendly & attractive horse and we feel he can give lots of racing fun over the winter season 🎄🤞🏻🐎 

Please email with any questions & to receive  full  terms & a joining form. 


A 20 OWNER National Hunt Mare PARTNERSHIP.

Glamorous Icon

This 4 year old filly has a thoroughly old fashioned NH pedigree by many times Champion NH sire ‘Presenting’ out of a twice winning Old Vic mare. Both 2nd and 3rd dam also won twice and have bred plenty of winners. We have made her a 20 Owner Partnership horse at £500 per share, with a set yearly keep fee of £1000 for Year 1 (breaking and training) and Year 2 onwards when running, £1250 per year. Our keep fees are always paid in 6 monthly amounts. We are impressed with her strength & depth, her lovely free moving walk, and the fact that she’s from a family full of winning mares. NOW IN WINTER TRAINING – come & see her in action – she may run once by April or Phul may wait with het until the Autumn, not decided yet.

Payment: To join you pay for your 5% purchase now of £500 and for a breakdown of the set keep fee costs & receive full details of how the Pship works please email or call Pippa on 07711709876.

Watch her dam ‘Vic Chic’ win her two hurdle races – she was genuine and stuck to her task over 2m 4f and 3 miles on heavy ground.

Some words from one of our Owners, Gary Edge in our first foal Pship, From Day One ..

‘Our baby boy is now 2, Covid has interrupted stable visits as per however plenty photos and videos have made up for that and I’ve been lucky that Phil and Pippa also staff at Green Oaks have gone out of their way to make our visits memorable and very enjoyable too. An amazing experience being involved since before the foal is born just blew my mind.’  

Lady Westerner with 2020 foal Chico…

Those in our first ‘From Day One Partnership’ lived the whole journey with us , received news & photos during the night that their colt had arrived, and watched his first steps the next few days. The whole journey has been documented with his own private Facebook page and regular updates, and his Owners regularly visit him as he grows up here at Green Oaks. Here are some of his videos, and if all goes to plan we would hope the next foal will follow the same path. We can’t guarantee they will become a winning racehorse, but the have the best chance and are from a high class National Hunt Family .

In WELL BRED ‘YEATS ’ 2 year old BORIS to make a NH performer


Boris as a handsome yearling, he is now officially 2
Boris as a foal last year

Your chance to buy your National Horse early at a price much more favourable than if waiting until he was 3 at the Store Sales. We are offering him at a price that covers all our expenses, not to make a big profit – we enjoy breeding on a small scale and if we can keep the ones we breed to race by selling them sensibly to stay on the yard it is much more enjoyable.

We all remember him returning from Coolmore with his amazing foster mare ‘Norah Batty’ .


His real dam is Lady Chloe who had a milk problem that year so he was fostered…Boris thrived and became a firm favourite with our Facebook followers. He is by a champion racehorse who is doing so well as a NH Sire, he is currently second in the NH Sire Rankings and he led the Sires table at the most recent Cheltenham Festival with 4 winners! His classy dam won on the flat and over hurdles for us but a race injury on her second NH start curtailed her career ( she had won first time out in her juvenile ). Lady Chloe’s first foal was ‘Lord Rococco’ who won twice over hurdles ( including a novice) before we tragically lost him. The family lives on with many to run for her including My Strong Man & Lady’s Present for this coming winter plus 4 year old ‘Sentimental Lady’ , 3 year old ‘Milo’ 2 year old ‘Boris’ and yearling ‘Desi’ . They are all really good looking sorts. Boris is a typical chunky Yeats colt with a bold attitude and good bone.

This was his half brother Lord Rococco winning his second hurdle race.

As an Owner in him you can watch his journey every step of the way as he grows up at Green Oaks, visit him any time you wish and enjoy the dream with us as breeders of this special colt. As an Owner you will receive the same info by email as on fb if you are not on there – he also has his own YouTube channel for videos.

2 Payments of £300  for his 2 YEAR OLD YEAR 2022
