Nick Luck Daily Ep 495 – Slip Slidin’ Away

Nick is joined by ITV and Racing TV broadcaster Rishi Persad to discuss the news and events from around the racing world. In this specially extended edition, Nick talks to the PJA’s Dale Gibson, jockey and PJA Flat Racing President and Safety Officer PJ McDonald and Goodwood Clerk Ed Arkell in a bid to understand what is happening on Britain’s racecourses to have caused 4 abandonments for slippery and unsafe surfaces in the last 5 racing days. Nick and Rishi consider the economic impact of this crisis and the responsibilities now on the racecourses and the BHA to prevent this happening again. They also examine the reactions from the tracks themselves and wonder whether the political tensions within the sport’s power structures are simmering to the surface through this issue. Later in the show, Nick talks to Bruce Raymond, racing manager to Saeed Suhail, owner of the Derby favorite Desert Crown, while Kevin Sommerville from South Africa’s prestigious Drakenstein Stud is this week’s Weatherbys Bloodstock Guest.
