Nick Luck Daily Ep 68 – Champion Jockey tests positive for cocaine

Nick is joined by broadcaster Cornelius Lysaght to discuss the news that GB Champion Jockey tested positive for cocaine while riding in France in July. The jockey strongly maintains his innocence and is being supported by his employers, yet is likely to face a six month ban. Nick and Cornelius examine the immediate course of events and analyse the differences in French and GB/Ire thresholds for prohibited substances. Nick also talks to trainer Charlie Hills about the withdrawal of Battaash from the Prix de l’Abbaye, talks more about the Arc, studies the Preakness Stakes with Britney Eurton, and gets the lowdown on this week’s TRC Global Thoroughbred Rankings with James Willoughby.
