Nick Luck Daily Ep 331 – Flare Out, but sun to shine on Champions’ Day

Nick is joined by Daily Mirror journalist David Yates to discuss the day’s national and international racing news. On what has been a fast moving morning in terms of QIPCO British Champions’ Day news, Nick brings news of Poetic Flare’s withdrawal from the QE2 Stakes and likely future, talks to owner/breeder David Ward about the retirement of top sprinter Starman to Tally Ho Stud, and gets the low down from William Haggas’s brilliant clutch of likely runners on Saturday. Nick and Dave look ahead to a possible Champion Stakes run for Adayar and examine how the Oisin Murphy failed breathalyser last Friday is likely to impact further on this week’s news. Still in Lexington for the Keeneland Fall Stars meet, Nick catches up with trainer Kenny McPeek, who won two Graded races over the weekend with promising juveniles en route to the Breeders’ Cup and who shared thoughts on continuing to train for Phoenix Thoroughbreds.
