Current Kim Bailey Racing Syndicates

Current Partnership Horses

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 season and the chances are it will be in the second half rather that the first but she has the size and scope to jump hurdles and fences in years to come; obviously if her brother does well it is only improving her pedigree.

Garrett, Meacham & Woodhall

Gerard Mentor was purchased at the Goffs sale Doncaster in June 2019. A really bonny horse who gives the impression that he loves his work, he was ready to make his debut before racing was shut down in March. This compact gelding summered well and made his racecourse debut in a bumper at Hereford in October wher he finished a promising second; he is certainly a forward type who shows plenty at home.

The Colourful Drinkers Syndicate

Hendra House was purchased at the Goffs sale Doncaster in June 2019. This stunning son of Yeats has plenty of size and scope who shows plenty at home. Being so big, he was never likely to run and after a good summer at has, he has improved no end. He is a horse we really like and will hopefully make his debut in a bumper before Christmas.

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 last 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 will start in a bumper before Christmas and we will see where we go from there.

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 when winning impressively last November. He schooled particularly well ahead of making his hurdle debut at Hereford but despite this, he showed signs that it was trhe end of a long season. 

After a summers break he didn't get the best start when falling at Newton Abbott before redeeming himself at Bangor when winning under a nice ride from Ciaran Gethings. He is a horse we really like and expect him to have a big winter and be jumping fences sooner rather than later.

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 in October 19 where he won first time out at Exeter, he then finished fourth at Huntingdon before heading to Cheltenham on New Years Day where the ground was too testing for him. He has schooled very well and strengthened up over the summer which showed when making his seasonal debut a winning one over hurdles at Uttoxeter, he should build from that experience.

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. Now back with us, we can push on with him and hopefully he will make his debut in a bumper this side of the New Year; very light on his feet, we think this horse will have a huge future.

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 and he is a good prospect for novice hurdling this winter.

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.

Bucks Fizz

Drumreagh is a hardy looking mare who seems to have a very good attitude to life. After being brought down on her debut, she finished second of thirteen in a point-to-point, jumping well and staying on very strongly. She made her seasonal debut at Uttoxeter and looked like th einner three from home before tiring. She has done well during the summer but sadly her form has not kept up with her looks. She ran well back at Uttoxeter to finish second and we hope to see her show a lot more this winter.

The Fiftyshadesofneigh

Donnie Brasco was purchased at the Cheltenham Tattersalls sale in February 2019 after he made a winning debut in a point-to-point; an embryonic chaser, he looks to have a bright future under rules.

He has three runs over hurdles, being placed on every occasion. Following a short break he returned to the racecourse at Exeter where he finished sixth on testing ground. He will be heading over fences this winter and we hope there is plenty more to come from him.

The Jury

Adjourned was purchased from the Cheltenham Tattersalls sale in November 2018 after winning a bumper at Southwell and was quickly syndicated by members of The Jury.

An impressive bumper winner who started last season with a very good second in a Maiden Hurdle at Stratford, jumping well in front and just being collared after the last by a smart horse of Evan Williams'. After that the soft ground went against him, he took a crashing fall at Huntingdon and we gave him one more run on soft ground in January following his wind operation. We had planned on a busy spring campaign for him however, along with alot of other horses Covid-19 put a stop to this. He is back in early and looks more than capable of winning off his current handicap mark.

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.

A dual bumper winner who had a very frustrating winter over hurdles. After taking a little while to come to hand she made her debut at Wawrick and looked all over the winner going to the second last before perhaps getting tired due to a lack of a recent run. We were surprised to see her get beat at Ludlow and although the winner has turned out to be pretty smart, we thought she could do better. She then disappointed on her handicap debut when after again looking like the winner she didn't quite get home. 

One of a few horses we didn't think were right last season, she now starts the year with a reasonable handicap mark and we expect her to be back on the winning trail sooner rather than later; she will most likely go over 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 whos hould have followed up in a listed race at Newcastle onlt 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. He will head over fences this season and has schooled exceptionally well, he is one we are very excited about and he really could be anything.

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. We look forward to seeing him progress further this season.

The Schiaparellis

Lord Apparelli was purchased as an unbroken store from the Goffs Sale May 2018, he is a full brother to Prince Llywelyn who we like enormously.

A stunning looking horse who worked very well before making his debut in a bumper at Ascot in November. He ran a very good race to finish fourth, beaten by three more experienced horses. We went to Ludlow a month later where we thought he would win but he was out sprinted by a much speedier type, finishing second and well clear of the third horse. We then took aim at the DBS Final in March but this never materialised. 

He made his hurdles debut at Wetherby in October where he rather fluffed his lines and ran like an inexperienced horse, he will improve from that run and we look forward to seeing him progress further this season.

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. 

He is back in after a year off and we look forward to his hurdling debut this autumn, there are plenty of races to be won with him.

The Commodores

Commodore Barry is a fine imposing 7 year old son of Presenting who had two runs in Irish point-to-points finishing fourth and second before we purchased him at the Goffs UK sale in spring 2017.

He had a really good first season over hurdles winning four times before making his chasing debut this season. A fantastic jumper who has been slightly unlucky as on his first two starts, he was very narrowly beaten into second place. He was fourth at Newbury before being our final winner of the 2020 season and is thoroughly unexposed over fences. He made a disappointing seasonal debut at Bangor in September and was caught out by the unsuitable ground at Exeter a month later. We look forward to him returning to form when the ground softens.

The Red River Syndicate

Red River is a good looking son of Beneficial who we purchased at the Tattersall Cheltenham sale in April 2017 after finishing second in an Irish point-to-point. He is a very free and athletic mover with a good old fashioned English pedigree which includes Champion Hurdler Night Nurse.

A listed novice hurdle winner who we had very high hopes for when heading over fences. After missing most of the 2018/19 season, we started him off in a hot novice chase at Newbury where he jumped and travelled well for a ling way and was still in contention when taking a crashing fall four from home. He unfortunatley suffered a knee injury but with a lot of time, patience and rehabilitation at Ivy Lodge Farm, he is back in full training and working away nicely. He made his seasonal debut at Chepstow and with a clean round of jumping finished a promosing third. He has plenty of potential and if we can keep things going in the right direction, he could well be high-class over fences.

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 last season, winning first time out 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 over Christmas but returned to put up a career best performance where under top weight, he ran a fantastic race, only being headed over the last and beaten less than 3l; surely only a lack of match practice was what beat him that day. He has been put up another 2lb, but handicapping will be a thing of the past this season and he will step up to open company; still thoroughly unexposed at staying trips, who knows where he could end up this season.

Stillmoremoneythan Syndicate

Arthur's Sixpence  was purchased after winning and finishing second in English point-to-points. He had four runs over hurdles finishing fourth and second at Huntingdon.  This fine looking six year old made his chase debut at Newton Abbott where he finished second giving 2st to the winner. We stepped him up in trip around Stratford in July and were disappointed not to win however in hindsight, he had done alot of racing for a young horse. He loves fast ground and we strated him off early this season at Uttoxeter where he won in determined fashion. He followed this up with a battling win at Market Rasen in spite of the rain softened ground and weas then very impressive at Fontwell when back on his favoured surface. He unfortunatley slipped going to to fourth last when going for a four timer at Sedgefield and has since had a short break. We hope he can continue to be competitive after a winter break.

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 is now back in full training and we hope to finally try him left handed with the West Yorkshire Hurdle at Wetherby an obvious starting point; from there we will know what options we have for the rest of the winter.
