Current Kim Bailey Racing Syndicates

Current Partnership Horses

Breakfast at 10 Syndicate

The Kemble Brewery is a lovely, atheltic gelding by Blue Bresil who was bought at the Goffs Landrover sales in June 2022 for a syndicate managed by Peter Kerr. 

Having been broken in by Martin Jones he has shown plenty of promise at home and it was no surprise he made a winning bumper debut at Huntingdon. He shows great attitude and ability at home. The Kemble Brewery is a super exciting prospect for the yard and won his second bumper at Cheltenham in October 2023. We look forward to his Novice Hurdle season this winter. 

All Spruced Up Syndicate

Sprucefrontiers was purchased through Thoroughbid after running well to finish a creditable third albeit slightly green in a point-to-point in April 2022. We had him in training during the early stages of 2022/23 season but we felt he had some growing to do so put him away for the winter to give him the time to mature as he is a big lad with a promising chasing career ahead of him. He has since ran in at Novice Hurdle at Plumpton and finished an encouraging 4th.

Going Places Syndicate

Let's Go Amigo is a lovely Getaway gelding who is very forward in his work. He had a commendable run on his racecourse debut at Warwick in a bumper. We felt he was unlucky not to win first time out over hurdles at Leicester. He certainly has the ability. His most recent run was at Ludlow where he finished third although slightly unlucky once again not to win. He has had a short summer break and is currently back in full training and will be a horse to look forward to for this season.

Rio Grandees

El Rio was bought at the end of last year after winning a point to point in Ireland, this son of Elusive Pimpernel was unlucky not to win first time out at Chepstow in February for the Rio Grandees syndicate when just needing to jump the last he crumpled on landing and came down. However compensation was soon to arrive next time out at Ascot where he won impressively by an easy 11 lengths.

This exciting prospect has the scope to be a chaser in time but will probably stay over hurdles this year.

Youneverknow Syndicate

General Hubble is a good looking horse by Telescope. Telescope is a young sire who's prodgeny seem to take time and this is appearing to be the case with General Hubble. We decided to skip running in bumpers and he has had four runs over hurdles to gain experience at the racecourse. He has collected a very workable handicap mark of 80. He has had a good summer at grass and has strengthened up and we look forward to a succesful handicap hurdle campaign this season. 

 

The Xtra Specials

Grand Escaparde is a very big horse by Getaway and predictably has taken a little bit of time. He works well at home and we went to the races full of expectation for a promising run. He appeared to be rather shell-shocked by his 'first day at school' so we returned to the drawing board and have been schooling him plenty over hurdles at home and taken him away to Lambourn to gallop. He is now back in training after enjoying a summer at grass and has had his first run of the season at Warwick and will give his owners some fun days out. 

The Thrill Seekers

Mikhailovich is a strong gelding who made his racecourse debut in a bumper at Chepstow in April 2022 when he ran very well to be third despite showing signs of greeness and finding the ground a little on the quick side. The 2022/23 season has been a difficult one for him as he struggled to breathe on heavy ground. However, since the end of the season he has had a wind operation which could certainly make a difference to him. He has returned from his holiday. He won his seasonal debut at Huntingdon and we look forward to a far better season ahead.

The P G Tipsters

Phantom Getaway is yet another imposing son of Getaway. He is a former Irish point-to-point winner who also ran well enough in his bumper. He was placed second in his three hurdle races in the 2021/22 season. Although frustrating it was proabably a blessing in disguise as it gave him more time to mature. He won first time out at Ffos Las for the 2022/23 season. Annoyingly, he only ran another three times that season due to finding it impossible to find races with his preferred ground. He has been schooled over fences and jumps for fun, we hope he is a good horse to go to war with for the 2023/24 chasing season.

The Surprise Syndicate

Magical Escape is a well bred and extremely good looking gelding, he was bought from Willie and Mandy Bryan and they did his pre-training before sending him here. A beautiful horse who has shown us plenty in his work at home and has done nothing but grow since arriving at Thorndale, now standing at 17hh! He had two encouraging runs in bumpers and has been schooled over hurdles at home but it was decided that he needed more time and he will now be rested until next season when he will begin his novice hurdling career. The time off will no doubt be beneficial to him and we look forward to showcasing his work at home at the racecourse.

 

The Front Ears Syndicate

Fair Frontieres was purchased privately after he placed second in a competitive maiden hurdle at Navan in January 2021. During the 2021/22 season he looked really impressive winning first time out at Worcester by 41 lengths. He then went onto win two further races and upon his final run of the season he finished 6th in a Grade 1 novice hurdle at Aintree. He unfortunately missed last season but all being well he isb back for the 2023/24 season - suitably refreshed and ready to go novice chasing!

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. This gelding was bought by Mags O'toole at the Tattersalls Land Rover Sale during lockdown. He has been very slow to come to hand and as a result of it very backward. He showed a modicum of ability over hurdles in the 2021/22 season. This season we schooled him over fences and were pleased with the way he jumped at home but unfortaunely both his starts over fences ended in unseating his rider. 

A further run back over hurdles confirmed that he needed a wind operation which was duly done and his first run back over hurdles (post wind operation) was a prosperous run when he was second at Market Rasen. We felt that was a good note to stop on turned him out for the summer and he is now back at Thorndale and we look forward to him returning to the racecourse ready to show us what he is capable of.

The Strollers Syndicate

Parc d'Amour is a good-looking son by Walk in the Park was purchased by Mags O'toole during lockdown. He is a big, strong, athletic gelding made a winning debut in his bumper in March 2022. He was always ging to be a horse that took a bit of time and after three runs over hurdles - two of which were placed. We gave him a break with the view to coming back in May for the 2023/24 season. He is due to run fairly soon and is a horse who should progress nicely over hurdles this season.

Garrett, Meacham & Woodhall

Gerard Mentor sums up what racehorse ownership is all about. He ran well in his bumper and for quite a long time after that he became very frustrating as a 'nearly' horse but bizarley a saddle slipping at Market Rasen probably shocked him enough to go and win. This seems to be the turning of the corner to his career. In the 2022/23 season he won four races over hurdles. He has had a break over the winter and has returned for the summer season. He has been running consistently well and is very much in the hands of the handicapper. It shouldn't be long until he gets his head in front.

Yes He Does Syndicate

Does He Know has been a real yard stalwart. He has 16 career runs, winning 7 and placed 4. He was a decent enough hurdler but chasing really has transformed him. You only have to look at his form to realise what a gem he has been! The 2022/23 season was slightly frustrating as he only ran three times but his win at Cheltenham in November carrying 12 stone over 3 and 1/2 miles was a terrific performance. He then ran a very credible race to finish third in the Denman Chase at Newbury. This much loved horse is now out at grass and having a break until July. He has returned to the yard and looking fantastic. We look forward to the season ahead with this talented horse.

The Midgelets Syndicate

Espoir de Romay has been a real showcasing horse for the yard. He was a highly respectable hurdler but chasing highlighted his true ability and he was very unlucky not to win a Grade 1 at Aintree when falling at the last. During the 2021/22 season he proved to be in the grip of the handicapper although he ran consistently throughout the season and was placed in most of his runs. The 2022/23 season did not start well for him - he had an operation on his back which delayed his racecourse re-apparence. Upon his return we ran him over hurdles at Exeter and then again at Ascot where he really caught the eye when finishing second. He has now back from his summer holiday and the decision will be made whether his future is over hurdles or fences.

The Second Chancers

Shantou Express has been a very admirable horse for his owners. He has been consistent over hurdles and fences. His zest for life is evident in his work at home and has ultimately transferred to the track having won at Stratford in June and finished 3rd last time out at Worcester. He then had a belated summer break and has just returned to run back over hurdles throughout the winter.

Soldiering On Syndicate

Zmiinyi is an exciting 5 year old by fashionable sire Soldier Of Fortune bought at the Cheltenham Tattersalls sale in May 2023. He was unlucky not to win in his latest point to point race (pulled up first time because his saddle slipped) beaten by a diminishing short head. Jumping brilliantly he finished very strongly showing battling qualities when short of room in the closing stages. He is a surefire chaser in the making and will have his first run over hurdles in November.

Plus 8 and dry when driving in. It seemed busy at Kempton last night.. Well the owners and trainers room certainly was. Interesting watching my two horses as both seemed to be with a huge chance three from home. Bobhopeornohope stopped like he was shot.. Is it his wind? Poor chap suffers badly from wind problems, but was it a case that he has been running on much softer ground and he was waiting...
