Nick Luck Daily Ep 545 – Will more trainers quit as recession bites?

Nick is joined by RTE and Racing TV broadcaster Jane Mangan to discuss the latest news and events from around the racing world. Nick is in Saratoga at the Fasig Tipton sale, where big money is flying, but – in stark contrast – news of another trainer calling time on his business comes through from the UK. Harry Dunlop explains to Nick what was behind his decision and why it is so difficult to make the economics work post Covid and Brexit. Nick and Jane also talk about Little Big Bear’s lofty rating, Bradsell’s injury, the upcoming Prix Jacques le Marois and Jane has the final word on the preclusion of Irish handicappers from lower grade UK races. Nick talks to former French champion apprentice Mikaelle Michel, fresh from landing her first stakes race in the US having moved her tack to Kentucky, journalist Michael Guerin brings sad news from New Zealand of the death of rider Taiki Yanagida, while Arqana’s executive director Freddy Powell is this week’s Weatherbys Bloodstock guest.
