Not only will you get up to speed on the upcoming Royal Ascot meeting, Vanessa and Naomi go over last weekend’s 2,000 & 1,000 Guineas winners whilst diverting into racing families and European top racehorses.
The (Epsom) Derby and its significance is discussed, against the growing sentiment of breeders being drawn towards speed favouring sires. Vanessa highlights how the UK Triple Crown isn’t as fashionable anymore, in comparison to the popularity of the USA Triple Crown trail.
The Ballydoyle facilities come into play, as well as the Galileo angle and Aidan O’Brien’s structured formula approach to the Classics.
