Nick Luck Daily Ep 484 – Is Baaeed the best since Frankel?

Nick is joined by the Daily Mirror’s David Yates to discuss the latest news and events from around the horseracing world. They lead with the brilliant success of Baaeed in the Lockinge Stakes at Newbury, which saw the undefeated colt earn rave reviews and comparisons with the greatest horse of the modern era. They also look back on the French Guineas at Paris Longchamp, and are joined by Harry Herbert, whose Highclere Thoroughbred Racing owned Cachet finished an honourable second in the Pouliches. Herbert brings news of two potential Derby candidates for the operation, and is particularly sweet on Friday’s Goodwood triallist, Lysander. Nick and Dave also discuss John Gosden’s smart looking three year old fillies and comment on a deeply worrying welfare case in Ireland involving trainer Pat Hayes. As the white filly Sodashi becomes a sensation in Japan and across social media, Nick talks to Japan-based Kate Hunter about her impact on the sport and whether she might travel abroad after her stirring victory in the Victoria Mile.
