Nick Luck Daily Ep 398 – Is Cheltenham still being punished for 2020 Festival?

Nick is joined by broadcaster Cornelius Lysaght to discuss the latest news and events from around the horseracing world. They lead with the news, as reported in the Daily Mail, that the Cheltenham Gold Cup is still without a sponsor, and debate the contention that the Festival brand remains significantly damaged by the perception of the event as a super spreader at the beginning of the pandemic. Also on today’s show, Nick and Cornelius look ahead to the weekend action – weather permitting – at Warwick and Kempton, with Peter Scudamore dropping in for a chat about the chances of Coragh Rambler in Warwick’s feature race. With the Dubai World Cup Carnival getting underway at Meydan, Nick talks to owner Bill Esdaile, dreaming of desert glory with sprinter King of Stars, while James Willoughby looks ahead to the Pegasus, Saudi Cup and beyond in a comprehensive edition of the TRC Global Rankings.
