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.

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!
