We asked legendary racing broadcaster Derek ‘Tommo’ Thompson to fire a few quick questions at champion jockey Hayley Turner and pick her brains about some of the key issues facing jockeys this festive season…namely who cooks the turkey and what’s on her Christmas list!
We managed to find a suitably festive location for the interview, outside the Tack Room restaurant in King’s Yard at Palace House in Newmarket.
Palace House is the home of the National Horse Racing Museum and is the last remaining part of what was once Charles II's sporting palace and stables. Also home to The British Sporting Art Trust as well as Retraining of Racehorses, it is one of the top attractions to visit in Suffolk and a treasure trove of excitement for any racing fan.
Check out how Hayley got on answering Tommo’s questions in the video below:
