Nick Luck Daily Ep 319 – Ruby Walsh brings mental health app to Irish racing

Nick is joined by Racing Post senior writer Lee Mottershead to discuss the day’s news and events from around the Horseracing world. They lead with the development of an app designed to maintain positive mental health among jockeys in Ireland that has been launched by multiple champion-turned-TV and radio personality Ruby Walsh. Walsh talks to Nick about why he felt compelled to get involved in the project. Nick and Lee look ahead to this weekend’s Cambridgeshire fixture at Newmarket, with news of a surprise big race ride for Frankie Dettori, and also reflect on two key political appointments this week and their significance for the sport. Trainer George Boughey, fresh from saddling his 100th winner in just two years, joins the conversation, while – later in this episode -Nick talks to Paddy Barlow about the first Student Derby at the Curragh at the end of October.
