Welcome to Kim Bailey Racing

Jump racing will appeal to anyone that has a love of horses and a spirit of adventure; and the most satisfying way to take part in the action is to follow the fortunes of your very own racehorse.

Here at Thorndale Farm, in our stunning Cotswolds surroundings, you and your horse will benefit from excellent training facilities as well as a friendly and dedicated team.

Please explore our site and see what we have to offer.

Would I recommend having a horse with Kim? Would I 'eck?
The facts, since having my first horse with Kim. 34 runs,12 winners,5 places,32 hangovers,32 fab days out and 1 liver transplant. Racing is an entertainment business and what an entertainer Kim is, raconteur, charmer, a gentlemen and a genuinely nice man...Oh! and I nearly forgot, a bloody good trainer. The only advice I would like to give is never ever have a drink with him at Royal Ascot unless you want another horse!....and finally what a brilliant website.
- Clive Washbourn, London (Owner of Gold Man, Sunblazer and Un Ace)
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.
