Nick is joined by RTE and Racing TV broadcaster Jane Mangan to take a canter around the racing world today. Nick begins this episode by talking to Racing Post editor Tom Kerr, whose paper’s campaign against affordability checks has led to a curious attack from the Gambling Commission. Also on today’s episode, Alexander Malynovskyy from the Ukraine Stud Book updates us on the racing and bloodstock situation in the wartorn country. Jane and Nick bring us the highlights from the Listowel Harvest Festival, including interviews with Oisin Murphy and Patrick Mullins, while they also reflect on Ace Impact’s latest pre-Arc gallop with Jour de Galop’s Adrien Cugnasse, and give their views on the ongoing Tim McCarthy welfare case. Mick Appleby shares his delight at securing the Tatts Ireland sales topper yesterday and has news on Big Evs, while JA McGrath brings us the latest from Hong Kong in a packed show.
