For this episode, we traveled to ‘The valley of the racehorse’, known as Lambourn. It’s situated in southern England and is home to over 1500 racehorses and our podcast guest Josh Apiafi.
Josh is well known in the horse racing industry. He has over 30 extensive years of experience and has held a variety of roles. He is currently a presenter at Sky Sports Racing and has recently launched a new initiative; Racing Pathways.
His drive for diversity and inclusion within the industry is fierce. His enthusiasm to encourage the younger generation to experience a wider range of career opportunities within the industry is infectious. I loved discussing a full range of topics with Josh and we hope you enjoy listening to one of our industry’s great minds.
This week we sit down with Gr.1 winning jockey Rachel King. Rachel started her career in the saddle as an amateur riding point to points in the UK & Ireland. She knew quickly that she wanted more & took out her apprenticeship on the flat.
For our second episode on No Barriers Sky Racing’s Kiersten Duke joined us to talk about her career so far. Kiersten didn’t grow up in an equestrian family but for as long as she can remember she has always loved horses.
