Nick Luck Daily Ep 487 – Outfoxed: The Anatomy of a Gamble

Nick, in Baltimore for the 147th edition of the Preakness Stakes, is joined by Daily Mirror journalist David Yates to discuss news and events from around the racing world. Today’s headline is the significant gamble landed at Kempton Park last night with a horse having his first start for veteran trainer Jimmy Fox, himself without a winner for over 900 days. Fox talks to Nick about how the plan was executed and what it meant to him. Nick and Dave also discuss the rerouting of last year’s Derby winner Adayar from the Coronation Cup to Royal Ascot, while anticipating the return of Reach for the Moon in this evening’s Heron Stakes at Sandown. William Haggas joins the show to give his thoughts on his two Group One contenders in Ireland this weekend – Alenquer and Purplepay – while reflecting on Baaeed’s success in the Lockinge and yesterday’s runaway winner My Astra, as well as looking forward to My Prospero at Sandown and Lysander at Goodwood.
