Nick Luck Daily Ep 467 – Fresh Cocaine Flurry hits Irish Racing

Nick is joined by RTE and Racing TV presenter Jane Mangan to discuss the news and events from around the racing world. They begin by celebrating the news of Brian Hughes’s 200th winner of the season, with the champion-elect telling Nick how he approached this year’s title race. They then focus on two key regulatory issues in Irish racing: a spate of cocaine positives (with a statement from the IHRB) and a case of a trainer still operating despite a charge of animal cruelty. JA McGrath reports on the fresh veterinary regulations surrounding foreign challengers for the Melbourne Cup and also brings news of another Australian sprinter, Artorius, bound for Royal Ascot to be ridden by Jamie Spencer. Spencer talks to Nick of his delight at securing the ride and also discusses the claims of Sandown Classic Triallist Cash. Anthony Oppenheimer, owner-breeder of one of Cash’s rivals Frantastic, drops in to look forward to the reappearance of this full brother to his champion Cracksman. Meanwhile, Olympic Gold medallist Kate French talks about her ride in this year’s Magnolia Cup.
