Nick Luck Daily Ep 403 – The case for Energumene

Nick is joined by journalist, broadcaster and “Road to Cheltenham” creator Lydia Hislop to discuss the news and events from around the racing world. With Shishkin getting the bulk of the love from pod guests this week in the run up to Saturday’s potentially epic clash at Ascot, Lydia makes the case for Willie Mullins’s young star Energumene. Nick and Lydia also discuss Robbie Dunne’s appeal and the mechanics of the process, while they reflect both on John Whittingdale’s address to the BGC yesterday and a cautiously encouraging outlook for the UK Tote. Nick talks to in-form owner Tim Syder about his love of the sport and his ownership philosophy, while Darley Australia’s Head of Stallions Alastair Pulford joins the show to discuss the growth and significance of stallion shuttling. James Willoughby predicts how 2022 might play out globally with his weekly rankings update, while JA McGrath considers Golden Sixty’s bid for a record equalling 17th consecutive win at Sha Tin on Sunday.
