Remembering HRH Queen Elizabeth II

With Willie Carson, Laura King and Mick Channon

An in-depth conversation reflecting on the life of Queen Elizabeth II

In this week’s ‘Deep Dive’ episode, host Chris Wright and his guests pay tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II following the news of her passing. 

In this episode, Chris sits down with Willie Carson, five-times Champion Jockey, Laura King, managing editor at World Horse Racing & Presenter at Dubai Racing Channel and Mick Channon, English racehorse trainer and former footballer.

The conversation begins with the panel sharing their reactions to the sudden news and the stories of where they were when they first heard of the Queen’s passing, describing the shock and sadness that has swept the nation.

The panel then goes on to share some of their favourite personal memories of the Queen. Willie explains how he made her laugh with an inappropriate joke, and Mick recalls how he gave the Queen some “good luck” at the races when he met her at one of his football games.

The discussion then moves on to the racing industry, when the guests discuss the value Queen Elizabeth II has brought to the industry, and describe her talent and multiple successes in the races. Together, they question what the industry would look like in the future without the Queen’s influence. 

All this and much more on this week’s Wright on the Nail!
