Birdie Racing Club was set up in 2019 by Darren Bird and Niamh Spiller. Niamh wanted to make the racing experience fun and affordable and together with Darren and his love for horse racing, the club was formed.

The club has enjoyed two wins since it was formed. Sepahi and Ben Curtis got us to winning ways in December 2019 and this was recently followed up by Rochford and Hayley Turner at Yarmouth winning at 50/1!



We want to give every member a fun and affordable experience. Horses are leased and there will alway be two horses in the racing club at any time. 

We host club days which include yard visits (normally with a full Irish breakfast!), club racing days, visits to studs, the racing museum and other racing related events. 

  • No hidden costs – this will include all farrier, vet, jockey, transport, training and other fees associated with the training of the club horse. 

  • Limited number of members.

  • Exclusive club stable visits to Henry Spiller’s Sackville House Stables.

  • Club trips to include the National Racing Museum, The National Stud and many more.

  • Owners & Trainers badges to the races (we will endeavour to provide these to all club members although from time to time, the number of club members who wish to attend the races will exceed the number of badges allocated. Should this be the case, we will allocate the badges through a ballot system).

  • Dedicated WhatsApp group with regular updates on club horse/s along with a weekly post from trainer Henry Spiller.

  • Welcome pack to include your very own signed Birdie picture. 

  • Dedicated and experienced club manager.

  • There is always be a minimum of one club horse in the club. 

  • Racing Cartoon Artist is a full member of this club and will be attending stable visits, club trips and race meetings. This is his first experience in racehorse ownership, a lifelong dream which has finally come to reality. 

  • All club horses will be leased so there will not be a cost associated with the purchase of a horse. 



  • One off membership fee of £49

  • £49 per month

  • Or annual payment of £550
