NIck is joined by broadcaster Cornelius Lysaght to discuss the day’s news and events from around the racing world. They begin with two stories that broke on Monday morning: the first is the announcement that jewelry firm Boodles is to sponsor the Cheltenham Gold Cup. The second involves an unexpected intervention into the debate surrounding the gambling review from the All Party Parliamentary Group for Betting and Gaming, which launches an untimely attack on the Gambling Commission, to the opprobrium of all sides. Later in the show, Nick and Cornelius reflect fully on the brilliance of the Clarence House Chase at Ascot and discuss the other highlights from the weekend, while Nick talks to Tom Lacey, who bought, raced and sold Energumene, about why the horse went on to great things. Ahead of the TBA National Hunt Stallion Showcase, Grace Skelton, Director of Alne Park Stud discusses her stallion Dink and his son Nube Negra, while – in the first of a five-part series in association with HBA Media leading up to this weekend’s Pegasus World Cup – Dr Dionne Benson, Chief Veterinary Officer to the Stronach Group, explains how enhanced protocols are making horses safer on the track.
