SportsPro editor at large Eoin Connolly talks to Nevin Truesdale, chief executive of the Jockey Club, one of the most important commercial organisations in British horse racing and operator of venues like Cheltenham, Epsom Downs, Newmarket and Aintree. 
With fans returning to UK sports events in larger numbers, Nevin talks about the summer ahead for the business and its vision for the years ahead. He also discusses a year of difficult financial restructuring, how a rebuilt Jockey Club team is now being prepared for the opportunities on the horizon, and the roles of data, betting, new waves of partners and elite athletes in racing’s future.
