Nick Luck Daily Ep 476 – Why are Jockey Club and ARC fighting over race cuts?

Nick is in Louisville for the Kentucky Derby, and is joined by Racing Post Senior Writer Lee Mottershead to discuss the news and events in the racing world. They lead with the escalating row over race cuts in the UK between the two major racecourse conglomerates, with ARC boss Martin Cruddace yesterday launching a stinging attack on the proposals put forward by the BHA with apparent backing from the Jockey Club. Nick and Lee also examine both groups’ move towards cashless racecourses and asks whether – for all its expediency – it is a wise move given the racegoing demographic. They consider the impact of the Queen’s horse Reach for the Moon’s absence from the Platinum Jubilee and take a look ahead to the key Chester trials. Bhupat Seemar, trainer of UAE Kentucky Derby candidate Summer is Tomorrow offers a confident assessment of his horse’s chances, while JA McGrath brings his regular update from Hong Kong.
