Monday Video: Mark Todd Reflects on Racing, Event Riding and Royal Ascot

While we miss seeing the great Sir Mark Todd out and about at events nowadays, the Kiwi event rider turned racehorse trainer is clearly enjoying his new line of work. This Friday, he’ll reach a milestone accomplishment in his new career as he saddles his first horse at Royal Ascot, one of Britain’s biggest flat racing meets.

BBC broadcaster Clare Balding recently sat down with Toddy to relive some of his eventing glory days, discuss his career transition, and of course chat about the horse of the hour, Tasman Bay, owned by Sir Peter Vela, who will be running in the Group 2 King Edward VII Stakes. Clare also finds out which piece of his former eventing equipment Mark has worn to the races before!
