Nick Luck Daily Ep 229 – Ex-Newbury MD tries to lift lid on ARC profits

Nick is joined by broadcaster and journalist Lydia Hislop to discuss all the day’s racing news. This edition opens up with a candid contribution from Mark Kershaw, former MD of Newbury Racecourse, who has published a study detailing what he believes to be unreasonable racecourse profits, particularly during the pandemic, that are not being reinvested in the sport. Nick and Lydia examine his claims and consider the landscape as a whole. With the Irish Guineas this weekend, Nick talks to trainer Jim Bolger, who saddles two leading fancies in Poetic Flare and MacSwiney, while ITV’s Oli Bell joins us to talk about the Riding A Dream Academy and the Khadija Mellah Scholarship.
