Kevin Burgess

Assistant Racing Manager

Kevin started off has an owner with Diamond Racing in 2009, enjoying much success with many different syndicates during this time.

Kevin is a font of knowledge when it comes to racing and took up the role of Assistant Racing Manager in 2019.  Kevin acts as a focal point on race days, stable visits and is a point of contact for owners, helping them to have the best possible race day experience.  Kev will answer questions and make sure that owners are clear on expectations and how their horse is likely to be ridden.

Kevin has 2 young children, Amelie and Oscar, who also love their racing and can often be found on course with him when Diamond don’t have a runner. He has lived overseas for extended periods and has been racing in locations as diverse as Ghana and South Korea, but has now settled in Goadby,  Leicestershire – the village where none other than Desert Orchid was foaled.

Away from racing Kevin is a keen runner himself, and will be stepping up to the marathon trip his year.
