Current Kim Bailey Racing Syndicates

Current Partnership Horses

Breakfast at 10 Syndicate

This syndicate was set up on behalf of owner Phil Andrews who purchased The Kemble Brewery a stunning son of Blue Bresil who has a lovely staying pedigree and certainly looks the part. Only a three year old, this syndicate of friends are going to have to wait a little before he makes his racecourse debut but he is a great mover and is showing plenty at home; we look forward to seeing how he progresses throughout the winter.

All Spruced Up Syndicate

Sprucefrontiers was purchased through Thoroughbid after running well in a point-to-point in April. We have only trained one other horse by Sans Frontieres and this lad really reminded us of him. He was very green in his point-to-point and looks the type who will improve for the experience. He is a big horse who will go chasing in the future.

Going Places Syndicate

Let's Go Amigo is a lovely Getaway gelding who is very forward in his work. He is more of a hurdler than a chaser but he has certainly improved a lot over the winter and jumping fences in time should not be a problem. He made his racecourse debut at Warwick in September he was incredibly green and will benefit massively from the experience.

Youneverknow Syndicate

General Hubble is a really good looking horse who did some nice work at the back end of last season and althoug ready to run, with the ground drying out he had a long summers break. Progressing nicely this year, it is yet to be decided whether he runs in a bumper or heads over hurdles but he is the type who will improve for the racing experience. 

The Xtra Specials

A newly formed syndicate for Grand Escaparde. A huge Getaway gelding who was in training last year but with his size, was never likely to reach a racecourse. He has always gone well in his work and showed us plenty on an away day last season. He will start off in a bumper before Christmas on slow ground and is a horse with a big future. 

The Thrill Seekers

Mikhailovich is a strong gelding who made his racecourse debut in a bumper at Chepstow in early April when he ran very well to be third despite showing signs of greeness and finding the ground a little on the quick side. He has come back in looking very well and has certainly improved physically, he will go straight over hurdles this season as he has schooled well at home.

The P G Tipsters

Phantom Getaway is an imposing son of last season’s leading sire for winners over hurdles and fences, Getaway. He convincingly won a Point To Point in Ireland earlier this year staying on strongly up the hill going away. It was an impressive performance achieving a high point to point rating of 91+

From a good family of graded winners, he has all the hallmarks to make a top class staying chaser in time. Reminds kim of his record breaking Grand National winner Mr Frisk!

Made his racecourse debut in a bumper at Wetherby before heading straight over hurdles as he showed plenty of scope. He jumped exceptionally well and was unlucky to run into a soft ground specialist at Ffos Las and was then out done for speed at Ludlow before again running very well at Chepstow on ground which was slightly too quick for him. He has had a long break and we have yet to decide whether to stay hurlding this season or head chasing but whichever way he goes, he will surely be winning races this winter.

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 pretraining 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.

Standing around 17hh now, he has a very good attitude and showed ability towards the end of last season, however, both mentally and physically it was all a bit much for him. He has improved for a summers break and is the type to go on progressing throughout the year. Once he has filled his frame, he is going to be a big imposing horse and one who we certainly feel will be worth the wait. 

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 made an impressive season debut at Worcester, winning by 41 lengths before running a disappointing race at Sandown in December. After a short break, he came back to win well at Warwick before following up again at Exeter. He ran a stormer at Aintree in a Grade 1 Novice Hurdle finishing sixth, he is a soft ground horse who is effective at anything from 2m4 to 3m and we very much look forward to seeing him over fences this winter.

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.

His most famous progeny to date being The Cheltenham Festival RSA Chase winner Presenting Percy.

Very immature, he took a while to come to hand last winter. He improved with every run and his last two novice handicap hurdles were not too bad at all. He has physically improved for a summer at grass and is showing plenty in his work at home. He will go novice handicap chasing on soft ground and off his lower mark we hope he can be competitive.

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 started last season under a bit of a cloud, although jumping very well she was not finishing her races and we couldn't figure out why. After a short break we went back over hurdles at Uttoxeter where she won impressively looking like the mare we had the season before. We were hopeful she would follow up but the ground dried up so she went for her summer break. She will head back over fences on soft ground this winter and is capable of winning plenty more races.

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 made his much anticipated racecourse debut in a bumper at Doncaster where he won going away very impressively. He is a big horse with a bright future and plenty of scope to go over the bigger obstacles.

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.

A big well bred filly who started with a nice run in a bumper, she schooled so well at home we decided to head straight over hurdles where she stayed on well to finish third at Huntingdon. Returning to the track a month later full of hope, but under an aggresive ride she found things happening a bit too quickly and was well beaten. After a short break, the plan was to have a couple more runs before the summer but the ground dried up so we put her away early. She has summered well and really filled her frame, we hope for a competitive handicap hurdle campaign this season. 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, never quite getting his in front but always in the places.

An out and out summer horse who was often placed without winning and finally got his head in front at Market Rasen in May. A quirky type who needs things to drop just right for him and once the handicapper did just that he returned to winning ways at Warwick in October and should continue to pay his way througout the 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.

Missed all of last year with a leg injury and has not run since winning his novice hurdle at Market Rasen in May 2021. He is working very nicely and we are pleased with him, as soon as we get some respectable ground he will be ready to go. We would like to think he can progress off his current mark.

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.

Only a six year old, he seems to have been around forever with a good few miles on the clock. After winning at Newton Abbot last summer, he lost his way and has now had a thoroughly deserved break in the field. He is on a winning mark and expect him to get his head back in front sooner rather than later.

The Ten Sages

Voyburg is a stunning individual 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 has had five runs over hurdles this season, winning at Exeter and being placed twice after; 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 had another fantastic season, jumping nicely when winning well on his season debut at Chepstow before following up at Cheltenham and was then second back there in a good race in November. After a short break he won the Grade 2 Reynoldstown Chase at Ascot impressively in February but the Cheltenham Festival was perhaps one run too many for him. He has had a good break, looks very fresh and well, but off a handicap mark of 152, he is perhaps going to find life not quite so easy this season. However, if things drop right for him there is another big race to be won.

The Midgelets Syndicate

Espoir de Romay is a horse who had us dreaming all last winter but his season just didn't fall right. He was slightly in need of the run when third on his seasonal debut, a race which turned out to be a very competitive contest at Carlisle. He had a tricky winter where we struggled to keep him right having suffered with colic on the way home from the races. He went to Kelso where looking like the winner two out but again had a bit of a blow before being beaten only two lengths in a good Listed Chase. He then went onto the Aintree Festival with a clear run and we really fancied him for the Handicap Chase but that didn't work out having never travelled or jumped before being pulled up. He has undergone quite an MOT during the summer and we hope to finally get him back on track this season.

The Second Chancers

Shantou Express never really took to fences at the start of the season and disappointed in his first two runs. We then went back over hurdles at Doncaster and things were obviously not right with him. He had a short break and we got him back on track at Stratford in March where he ran a race full of promise and followed that up with a strong staying performance at Market Rasen. After a couple of good runs in more competitive races, he won again at Stratford before being second at Worcester. We then tried fences again and he put up a bold show, looking all over the winner before not quite seeing out the extended 3m1 at Cartmel. It is always great to get a horse back to form and he will go over fences again this autumn; he should get his head back in front fairly soon.
