LAST Friday I chaired a session at the immensely successful Irish Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association Expo 2018. We had an outstanding panel gathered to discuss a very broad brief.

‘What If – A Vision for 2028’ could have taken a day to discuss in detail, but we just had two hours. We did manage to address a number of issues, but one topic dominated. That was Brexit. As one whose eyes tended to glaze over when that six-letter word was mentioned, I was not surprised afterwards to hear some mutterings about spending too much time on the topic that night.
