Horse racing in Ireland is not just a vibrant part of our culture and heritage, it is worth millions to the economy each year and employs almost 30,000 people nationwide.

With sport taking one step backwards this week in terms of the fight against Covid-19, Bobby thought he would speak to three people involved in the racing industry to see how they’re faring.

Joining Bobby was:

  • Ted Walsh, RTE racing analyst and trainer
  • Michael Moloney, CEO of The Galway Races
  • Brian Kavanagh, Chief Executive of Horse Racing Ireland
