Nick Luck Daily Ep 361 – Should the BHA just be a regulator?

Nick is joined by Racing Post senior writer Lee Mottershead to discuss the latest national and International racing news, beginning with the story that the sport’s stakeholders want to take control of its commercial future, leaving the BHA effectively in a regulatory capacity only. They look back on A Plus Tard’s scintillating display at Haydock, look ahead to Newbury and Newcastle this weekend, wonder whether trainers have become too risk averse in light of the continuing small fields. Nick talks to the Riccis’ racing manager Joe Chambers, who confirms the King George a likely target for Royal Pagaille and gives updates on the weekend’s runners Annamix, Brahma Bull and Saldier. He also gets the latest from trainer Kerry Lee about Ladbrokes Trophy contender Demachine, asks Fergal O’Neill, owner of Belfast Banter why he is selling the Grade One winner through a Thoroughbid auction this week, and discusses the significance of the upcoming breeding stock sale at Tattersalls with Jimmy George.
