Nick is joined by broadcaster Cornelius Lysaght for the daily look at the news and events in the racing world. The NLD podcast has received a thoughtfully written paper from trainer Venetia Williams, in which she outlines a number of the reasons why British based jumps horses have been underperforming relative to their Irish counterparts, particularly highlighted by events at this year’s Cheltenham Festival. Here, Williams gives Nick an extensive and wide-ranging interview outlining her motivation. On a related theme, the Jockey Club today announced a return to pre-pandemic prize money levels in Q4 of 2021. Nick talks to CEO Nevin Truesdale. Later in this edition, in a truly fascinating and in depth episode of the Weatherbys Bloodstock Series, we get the low down on racing in Kenya from one of the country’s most influential figures Mary Binks.
