Nick Luck Daily Ep 609 – How is a horse worth $184 million?

Nick is joined by Racing Post writer Jonathan Harding to discuss the news and events from around the racing world. As a 2.5% fractional interest in Flightline was sold to an anonymous bidder at Keeneland last night, they examine whether this is a fair representative value for the horse, what it might mean for his (and others’) stud fee, and how quickly the investors may recoup their spend. Keeneland’s Ed Prosser describes last night’s action. Looking ahead to this weekend’s Paddy Power meeting, Nick talks to Evan Williams about his Cheltenham specialist Coole Cody and a potentially intriguing runner in the Greatwood Hurdle. Trevor Stewart tells the fascinating story of his foundation mare Cassandra Go, another of whose descendants Victoria Road gave him another success as a breeder at Keeneland last Friday, while Tote UK CEO Alex Frost talks about sponsoring the ROA awards, the growth of WorldPool and breeding Queens Gamble, who runs at Cheltenham this weekend. Nick and Jonathan also discuss the latest developments in the Irish Media Rights debate and Jockey Club’s decision to end their contract with Blenheim Horse Trials.
