    S2E4 - Angus Gold in the hot-seat

    In our latest episode, Shadwell’s racing manager Angus Gold gives us a superb insight into Sheikh Hamdan’s renowned racing and breeding operation. Angus is a fascinating and amusing guest, reflecting on his 30-plus years working for Shadwell. Among others. he talks about sprint stars Dayjur and Battaash as well as Derby heroes Nashwan and Erhaab. His insights on trainers, including Major Dick Hern, are well worth a listen. Meanwhile, Charlie has just about come down from Cloud 9 after two Royal Ascot victories (Sheikh Hamdan had six, Chas!). And he and George – who also has his team in good order – turn their focus on Epsom’s Classic Saturday. Last but not least, the pair flag up horses from their own stables that they’re looking forward to running in the next couple of weeks. It’s a cracking episode. Can we say that? Ah, sure we can...enjoy!

    S2 E3 And it’s time for Royal Ascot...

    George and Charlie are back just in time for Royal Ascot. In the latest episode, the pair provide trainers' insights into behind-closed-doors racing and then turn their attention to the Royal meeting. Our partners Fitzdares are going 4/1 for either Scott or Fellowes to saddle a placed horse at Ascot and Charlie shares details of one of his runners that he thinks has a squeak of landing the price. There is news too of the Podcast Syndicate with George updating after the equine version of ‘Charlie Fellowes’ made a promising debut at Wolverhampton. The episode also proves that Charlie is a multi-tasker as he doubles up as babysitter for his three-month-old son and gives us his Royal Ascot nap.

    S2 E2 - Jack Whitehall joins the boys...

    Who better to give us lockdown laughs than Jack Whitehall. The stand-up comic and actor - among his many talents - talks to us about his love of a day at the races and a brief flirtation with racehorse ownership. He also debates whether it's harder to be a jump jockey or a stand-up comedian, while George recalls a day in the dim and distant past when he once served as Jack's driver before a gig in Chester. Meanwhile Charlie laments the loss of De Niros nightclub in Newmarket - and George explains why he recently downed a raw egg. There's also an update on the joys of fatherhood as Charlie talks us through doing the late-night feed! We really enjoyed episode 2 - and we hope you do too.

    Episode 17 - The live one

    Episode 17 - The live one

    When our partners Fitzdares suggested an episode in front of a ‘live’ audience at the King’s Head, Dullingham, we thought ‘what a great idea’. So, George, Charlie and Tony mustered a bit of Dutch courage and set out to entertain an assembled throng that included friends, family, owners and others. It was a fun way to finish the very first series of Off The Bridle. So, please enjoy Episode 17. We’ll be back in the spring... until then, have a great Christmas and a happy new year.

    He just about got through the birth (sheet-white, sat in the corner with his head down). So, in our latest episode front and centre we hear about George’s early days as a proud parent and proud husband. Indeed, the birth story is one not to miss. Also tune in for traveller’s tales as Charlie looks back on a bold bid for glory in the Melbourne Cup with Prince of Arran.
