Betting on Horse Racing | How a Racecourse Affects Who Is Going To Win
Mick Fitzgerald won pretty much every big race in his riding career, including The Cheltenham Gold Cup in 1999 on See More Business and the 1996 Grand National on Rough Quest the highlights of his UK 1303 winners. His career ending fall was in the 2008 Grand National. He has since become a familiar face on our TV screens working for Channel 4 then ITV Racing as well as At The Races and Sky Sports Racing. In this interview he talks frankly and in places emotionally about the state of racing today and his riding career.
In Part 1, Mick explains, that he didn’t ride his ponies to race but jumped at the chance of working in a racing yard. He talks about that first ride up the gallops that changed his life, and what he feels is wrong with racing today.
