Current Kim Bailey Racing Syndicates

Current Partnership Horses

The Front Ears Syndicate

The Front Ears Syndicate has been formed for Fair Frontieres an exciting six year old purchased from Ireland. After finishing a close second in a competitive maiden hurdle around Navan, he held an entry and was favourite for a high class bumper at Fairyhouse before being snapped up by us for his new owners. 

He is a very exciting prospect for this season, will be heading straight over hurdles and we look forward to seeing how he can progress on the track.

The Percy Vera's Syndicate

Percy Veering is by Dewhurst and Derby winner Sir Percy, who is now making his mark as a National Hunt sire.

There are winners all through the pedigree including Fiorente Champion stayer in Australia, winner of the Melbourne Cup.  Yorkshire Oaks Gr1 winner and second in the St Leger Hellenic and Champion 3 year old and Champion older mare Islington winner of Gr1 Nassau Stakes, Gr1 Yorkshire Oaks(twice) and Breeders Cup.

This good looking athletic gelding will start off in a bumper this autumn.

The Grapevine Syndicate

Starvoski was an easy 10 length debut winner of an Irish point-to-point and is by Aizavoski, a useful 12f performer in France from the family of Cape Verdi and by top sire Monsun. 

Starvoski has been syndicated for The Grapevine , a trusted network of private members, linking kindred spirits from town or country. Members promote, sell or buy goods and services within the network. 

She made her racecourse debut in a hurdle at Wincanton before heading to Doncaster where she finished fifth in what turned out be a hot contest. She won her first race at Southwell in February before looking like the winner at Sandown when a mistake at the last left her in fourth. She is a lovely big mare who is an exciting prospect for this newly formed syndicate and will now go novice chasing this season.

99 Problems but the Horse ain't one

A very easy moving strong gelding by Norse Dancer whose most famous son is Yanworth. Tantoli has been going very nicely at home and is currently enjoying a summer at grass. He is certainly big enough for jumping and a real taking individual who we hope to have a good future, all being well, he will start his career off in a bumper this autumn.

The Strollers Syndicate

A new syndicate has been put together for Parc d'Amour, a stunning 4 year old gelding by top class middle distance sire Walk in the Park; now a leading National Hunt Sire with the likes of Douvan and Min amongst his progeny. This gelding is related to Cheltenham Festival World Hurdle winner More of That, Santenay a Grade 2 hurdle winner and Eastlake who won the Topham Chase. He is progressing well at home and we hope that he will be ready to make his racecourse debut in a bumper this autumn.

The Galante Gallopers

Galante De Romay is a good looking filly by Lord Du Sud who is a half sister to the exciting Espoir De Romay. A real eye-catching filly with plenty of size and scope who we hope will be a high-class performer. The plan will be to run her in a bumper this autmun before going hurdling, she has the size and scope to jump fences in years to come; obviously if her brother does well it is only improving her pedigree.

Garrett, Meacham & Woodhall

Gerard Mentor is a real bonny horse who has shown some respectful form in bumpers and over hurdles, he will continue running through the summer and hopefully will get his head in front very soon.

The Colourful Drinkers Syndicate

Hendra House was purchased at the Goffs sale Doncaster in June 2019. This horse has never stopped growing, he got close to seeing a racecourse at the back of end of last season but the ground went against him. He shows plenty at home and the plan will be to run in a bumper or hurdle race this coming autumn.

It's Only Money Syndicate

Design Icon was purchased from Tattersalls Ireland in May 2019. A very free moving son of Schiaparelli who has gradually been progressing all season. He was one of many four year olds who did not get a run in his first season but he did a few nice pieces of work before his summer break and has come back looking a lot bigger and stronger.

He gained plenty of experience running in three hurdle races all over 2m and stayed on well to win a hurdle around Market Rasen when stepped up in trip and will be a fun horse this summer.

The Azza Chance Syndicate

Chazza was purchased from the Tattersalls Sale at Cheltenham in December 2018 after winning an Irish Point to Point. He opened his account on his first start in a bumper at Bangor and has since won over hurdles and been placed and this season we are very much looking forward to him going novice chasing.

Shinobithemoney Syndicate

Shinobi was purchased from the Newmarket Tatts Guineas Sale in May 2019 after failing to see the racecourse on the flat for David Simcock. He is a fine looking horse by Ifraaj, the same stallion as Charbel and although it is early days, we are very pleased with what we have seen so far.

He made his racecourse debut a winning one when winning a bumper the first time out at Exeter and has since won two hurdle races and been placed on numerous occasions. There are still more races to be won with him over hurdles and he has the size and scope to jump a fence.

The Ten Sages

Voyburg is a stunning individual is by young sire Sageburg whose offspring include Cheltenham Festival winner Ch'tibello. He was working very nicely in the spring prior to the end of racing due to covid and was turned out for a long summers break. He has shot up during the summer and as a result rather outgrew his strength and has benefitted hugely from Jason Maguire's water treadmill. He made his racecourse debut at Warwick in December finishing 9th in a fast paced bumper, following a short break he headed back to Warwick for his hurdles debut where he finished fourth before stepping up in trip and finishing a good fifth at Southwell; he is learning all the time, has shown plenty of promise and is a big staying chaser in the making.

Yes He Does Syndicate

Does He Know is the first horse we have trained by Alkaased, he is a five year old who won his only start in an English point-to-point. A very happy horse, he always looks to be enjoying his work and likes to get on with things. He made his racecourse debut for us in October 19, finishing second around Hereford. We stepped him up in trip on his next start when he again finished second in what looked like a very competitive race around Ludlow.

He made his season debut a winning one back at Ludlow in October before heading to Cheltenham to win the Ballymore Novices Hurdle at The Showcase meeting. A few weeks later we returned to Cheltenham for another competitive Ballymore Novices Hurdle where he won again in impressive style which secured his entry for the main Ballymore Hurdle at The Cheltenham Festival; he finished fifth which was a great result for his owners and the plan is to head Novice Chasing this coming season.

The Belle Stars

Yeavering Belle is a good looking mare, leased from Ian & Tockie Mckie who intend to breed from her when she has finished racing. She is closly related to good chaser Dublin Flyer and she surprised everybody when winning her bumper at Warwick in March 2019. She went on to be placed in a bumper at Cheltenham in April and has proved to be very successful over hurdles, winning at both Newton Abbott and Ludlow.

She was very impressive when winning a handicap at Bangor on her seasonal debut and was a good second off her revised mark. Unfortunatley her good run came to an end when she was pulled up at Newton Abbott but as it transpired there were reasons for this. She made a great seasonal debut when returning to winning ways at Ludlow under a determined ride from David Bass and we are sure she has more to give yet. During her winter break she was well schooled over fences with the plan to have a summer campaign and so far she has finished second over fences at Worcester.

Surf on the Turf

Subway Surf was purchased at the Cheltenham Tattersalls Sale in May 2018 after she won her only start in an Irish point-to-point. A very athletic mover, who has a great pedigree and will certainly make a fantastic brood mare once her racing career is over.

She won two bumpers for us but annoyingly she is still a maiden over hurdles having run some incredibly good races, only to finish second. She has not been the easiest horse to train but she will come back from a summers break a better horse than she was last season and surely it's only a matter of time before she breaks her maiden over hurdles or fences.

The Midgelets Syndicate

Espoir de Romay was in Ireland prior to coming to Thorndale and was in training with a view to running in a Point-to-Point however, it was deemed more time would be benefical and how they have been proved right.

A very impressive novice hurdle winner who should have followed up in a listed race at Newcastle only to be pipped on the line. He bolted up on his handicap debut at Wincanton and was so impressive we felt we had to go to the Cheltenham Festival for the Conditional Jockeys Race. He ran well for most of the way but got caught out by his lack of experience in the last mile.

Espoir made his winning chasing debut at Huntingdon in November, this huge horse who had a wind operation since his last run at Cheltenham in March was a worthy winner. He then went to Haydock and finished second on heavy ground this race took quite a bit out of him so after a long break, he went to Leicester where he duly bolted up. We missed Cheltenham and headed to Aintree where he fell at the last in the Grade 1 Mildmay Novices Chase when looking like the winner. He is now one of the top rated novice chasers in the country and has a very exciting future.

The Second Chancers

Shantou Express was purchased from the Goffs Landrover Sale 2018, a lovely free mover who came to hand quite quickly last season. We decided to run in a bumper at Ludlow in March and frankly we were slightly disappointed that he was beat. The form of the race has worked out to be very strong, which he then franked by winning impressively at Straftord. The plan was always to go for the listed race at Ascot where he found the ground far to heavy for him but, having said that, he still ran an absolute blinder to finish third only beaten by 4 1/2 lengths. After such a hard race we gave him a long break with a view to coming back in the spring.

His bumper form is red hot, he started his hurdle campaign with two good seconds at Stratford and Uttoxeter before finally getting his head in front at Exeter in October. He then headed to Sedgefield in December and on very wet ground, he won by 12lengths. After a short break he ran a great race to finished by a neck at Wetherby before disappointing at Haydock in April. Now enjoying a summer break, we look forward to seeing him progress further this season the plan is to go chasing.

Inn for a Penny

Balleticon an athletic son of Arakan caught the eye at the Cheltenham Breeze Up sales in 2017.

A strong, sharp looking gelding who showed some good form in bumpers, including a particularly good second at Chepstow in a race which worked out very well. Unfortunatley he picked up an injury when only fifith at Bangor in January 2019. 

After having a year off he made his debut at Southwell in December and shocked us all by winning! After 705 days off the track this horse galloped and jumped brilliantly, he then finished fourth in a hot novices hurdle around Ludlow on heavy ground; he is certainly one we look forward to seeing when he goes chasing this season.

Moremoneythan Syndicate

Vinndication was bought as an unbroken 3 year old at the Goffs Sale in May 2016. He made a winning racecourse debut in a bumper at Ludlow in November 2017 before heading over hurdles. He won all three of his hurdle races, notably beating Champ by a neck in a competitive race at Ascot. Vinndication made his chasing debut a winning one and followed up with another win in a Grade 2 chase at Ascot. He was stepped up to Grade 1 company at Sandown, finishing only three lengths behind Defi Du Seuil and Lostintranslation in the Scilly Isles Novices Chase. He then headed to the Cheltenham Festival in March where he finished fifth in the JLT Novices Chase.
 
After a summers break, Vinndication returned to winning ways when taking the £100,000 Sodexo Gold Cup at Ascot in impressive style. He suffered a slight setback but returned to put up a career best performance at The Festival where under top weight, he ran a fantastic race in the Ultima Chase, only being headed over the last and beaten less than 3l; surely only a lack of match practice was what beat him that day. His 2020 seasonal debut was in the Charlie Hall Chase at Wetherby where he finished a galant second to top rated chase Cyrname, he then headed for the Ladbroke Chase at Newbury where he unseated David Bass when running a brilliant race. The rest of the season was spent over hurdles and he will return to chasing this coming winter.

The Blazing Optimists

Blazon was initially purchased at the Goffs Doncaster sales 2016 with a view to running over hurdles. He started life for us in bumpers winning his debut at Lingfield before finishing second under a penalty at Huntingdon. After this promising start, we found that hurdling was not his game and decided to give him a campaign on the flat. Once we got him handicapped, he rattled off three wins within a month in early 2019. He has been a bit of a star since reverting to the flat and is a multiple winner who seems to love the all-weather tracks. He hasn't got many secrets from the handicapper but when he is on a winning mark there will be more races to win with him.

Youneverknow Syndicate

Younevercall is a former bumper winner who won his first start over hurdles at Uttoxeter. He likes fast ground and a right handed track which limits us emourmously but he is a very good horse. His last run was at Sandown in April 2019 where he impressivley won the bet365 Select Hurdle. He then headed to Royal Ascot where he sadly sustained a slight injury and has since had a break. 

He made his seasonal debut at Kempton in a race which he won in both 2016 and 2018 and after 506 days off the track, he finished second by a nose. He then headed to Sandown in December for the Long Walk Hurdle where he finished fourth only beaten 7 lengths by some of the top staying hurdlers which entitled him to an entry in the Stayers Hurdle at Cheltenham in March where he ran a great race to finish eighth. He returned to Sandown for the season finale to win back to back Select Hurdles. We were so impressed with his races and very much look forward to planning where he heads next.
