Ever wondered what it takes to be a jockey? Well, one day's trotting might leave you walking downstairs backwards...
On Friday Night Racing, Neil Treacy was joined in studio by Wayne Middleton: strength and conditioning coach with The Jockey Pathway.
Wayne's first foray into the daily rigours of the trade led to a newfound respect for jockeys.
His work is to understand what being a jockey means for the body, and ensuring humans are built to do it.
He joined us to discuss what exactly is needed to succeed at the top table.
Johnny Ward also joined us on the line to discuss the Christmas Hurdle at Leopardstown, where Apple's Jade won the ninth top-tier race of her career, and successive Christmas Hurdles.
Watch above to hear Johnny's tips from Limerick, and which horse he believes Rodney Dangerfield could ride to victory..!
