Nick Luck Daily Ep 143 – ‘Nobbled’ – A Racing Scandal

Nick is joined by Rishi Persad to discuss the extraordinary news that emerged from Ireland yesterday that Viking Hoard, trained by Charles Byrnes, had been nobbled by an unidentified third party with sedative ACP before running at Tramore in 2018, a race in which he was heavily laid to lose on Betfair by a mystery punter based abroad. Nick and Rishi discuss the case, its implications for Irish racing and the suspension of Byrnes for negligence, which he is appealing.

Later in this edition, Nick talks to Harry Cobden on regaining the ride aboard Politologue, to trainer Tom Symonds about his split with assistant David Dennis, who has taken his horses to Matt Sheppard, and to ten year old Tubs McNally about the extraordinary Dreal Deal. JA McGrath brings the weekly update from Hong Kong.
