Plus 8 and dry when driving in. It was certainly not dry yesterday. We were hoping to take 4 horses to Chepstow to work yesterday morning but that was cancelled due to the horrendous weather forecast. They were right to do so as it was torrential.

TestimonialsWhat our clients say

What can I say, from start to finish what a brilliant morning, very warm welcome from Kim and Claire, and not forgetting doggie and bear, great stable visit, down to the gallops and schooling over the jumps, every horse looks so well kept and beautiful, thanks again for a great morning, we would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves horse racing.

My first venture into horse ownership has been better than I could have dreamed of. Yeavering Belle winning at Warwick and the Cheltenham day out was amazing. But more than that the whole experience from stable visits to the regular Sunday updates on the horses makes you feel part of the team. So looking forward to next season and many more in the future.

I visited Kim up at Thorndale with some American guests, Dennis and Jody Metter from Chicago: I have been in and around both flat and jump yards in Lambourn and Newmarket for 40 years, and have never seen such an impressive training establishment in jump racing... the calmness and well being of the horses, the charm and efficiency of the staff, especially the senior staff, and syndicate maestro Peter Kerr. For those of you out there thinking of taking the fun, exciting and rewarding plunge into jump racing ownership... look no further than Kim, Peter and the team...

Nicky Samengo-Turner

In twenty years of ownership Kim has always displayed absolute honesty and integrity in our dealings. If a horse was a waste of time he has told me. He is a great communicator. Whilst he is incredibly competitive and hates being beaten, particularly into 2nd he recognises that the experience of ownership is meant to be fun and enjoyable and he has achieved both for me, winning and having a lot of fun. I hope there will be many more years of the same.

We chose Kim Bailey Racing partnerships because it allows involvement in multiple horses, access to friendly and well managed partnerships, the opportunity to meet like minded racing enthusiasts and have 'fun going racing'.

John & Veronica Full (Blazon, Peeping Tom, Royal Supremo, Shantou Express)

A syndicate at Kim Baileys is the most pleasant, open, honest, reassuring and accessible way to get into horse racing. Since joining the yard in December 2017 I have not looked back, incredible team!
