If you want to know what’s going on in horse racing, there are few better people to ask than Lee Mottershead. The Racing Post senior writer has covered all the big races during his time in the sport, and sat down for in-depth interviews with everyone from elite trainers to champion jockeys. Lee also works with both the British Horseracing Authority and the Racing with Pride network to help increase diversity and inclusion in the sport, and is a cracking guest who we’ve wanted to have on the pod for ages. This is a fascinating conversation that looks at all sorts of different things – where Lee’s passion for horse racing comes from; how he got his break in journalism and meeting his heroes; his most memorable stories; being an out gay man covering the sport; the Racing with Pride network and the work it does; and so, so much more. It’s a great episode, this – and we really think you’ll like it. WANT TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT OUR GUEST? @leemottershead @RacingWithPride WANT TO GET IN TOUCH WITH THE PODCAST? @jack_murley
