Equine flu threatens British horse racing industry

February 11, 2019

Delegations from the U.S. and China are meeting again to restart talks aimed at ending the ongoing trade stalemate. But, what would a win for eitherside look like, and is China now more willing to give in as consumer spending continues to slip? Then, it's been 40 years since revolutionaries overthrew Iran's monarchy, but the economy is struggling today. Plus, horse racing is the second-biggest spectator sport in Britain, generating billions for the economy. But just a month to go until a key racing event, 174 stables are in quarantine amid an outbreak of highly contagious equine flu. Today's show is sponsored by Kronos, Pitney Bowes and Indeed.
