Son of Robert Kinsey who trained under the name of Thomas Kinsey according to our Mr Delargy is as much as I knew until I used a thing called google last night.
FOUND THIS ALL TOO LATE: ALPHA VICTOR – 6 YR GELDING
"David Wesley Yates who owns Monet’s Garden has a quarter share in this horse. He is back in full work and is going really well on the gallops, will act on any ground. He has been jumping well and has schooled really well and hopefully should win a Maiden."
Ashton-based Will Kinsey talks to Arthur Shone about his string for the season.
Peel Hall is set in some 250 acres of scenic Cheshire countryside in Ashton, Nr Chester and is home to Point-to-Point Trainer and Rider Will Kinsey.
The facilities at the yard are very impressive; there is an AW two furlong gallop and an abundance of grass gallops, the Trainer’s father Richard has left 12 metres from the inside of quite a few of the fields for the horses to work on, all 20 boxes are full and he has planning permission to build another six.
Kinsey rode his first winner for Wolverhampton Trainer Paul Jones on Master Jock in 2000 and with almost 40 already under belt, he is very much enjoying the training side as well as riding winners.
There was a time when the Kinsey’s mother Julie, the former Master of the Cheshire Forest, used to train the family’s own Pointers as a hobby, the best of which was Fibreguide Tech. However all that changed when she handed over the reins to her son Will in 2006; he has expanded the yard to include a lot of outside Owners.
After 12 months of training and riding between the flags, he decided to work as Assistant Trainer at Cholmondley to Donald McCain and still rode between the flags, an experience that he described as invaluable and a great learning curve.
Will Kinsey’s father Richard has a permit licence to train under Rules and was very instrumental in expanding the family’s equestrian business, which is proving to be successful as they buy young horses and bring them on to sell at the sales later. They also graze horses for Goldford Stud, which is owned by Bangor and Chester director Richard Aston.
Will Kinsey feels that in the not too distant future he would like to take out a full licence under Rules; he has passed all the exams and in his own words, it is just a case of getting the timing right. However he is for now firmly focused on the new 2010/11 Point-to-Point season. He will have around 20 horses in training for the new campaign; his nominated dark horse for the new season is StrikeJanuary 7, 2012 at 12:30 #385901Ten PlusMember

The Kinseys are well-known in the N/W area (and beyond) for their point-to-pointers. Will’s sister Hannah rode pointing winners and married point-to-point record-breaking Richard Burton who has just announced his retirement. Peel Hall’s facilities look really good and a bright future is forecast!
