The Paddock And The Pavilion
The Paddock and The Pavilion began in July 2020 with the aim of bringing inspiring and historical stories to listeners all around the world.
Every week Stephen Wallis talks with the sports stars from Newmarket and around the World on his two biggest sporting loves Cricket and Horse Racing.
With horse racing and cricket, Stephen has spoken to some of the leading stars in both sports – from Classic winning jockey, now trainer, Joseph O’Brien, to legendary West Indian fast bowler Michael Holding talking about his book ‘Why We Kneel, How We Rise’ (episode 73).
In the Paddock, Stephen led the campaign to gain recognition for Ellen Chaloner, the first woman trainer, (episodes 109 & 182). The inaugural Ellen Chaloner Stakes was run on Saturday 6 May at Newmarket’s Rowley Mile course.
Stephen has also collaborated with Great British Racing International for three Royal Ascot featured podcasts.
In the Pavilion there are regular shows following England’s men’s and women’s Test match progress with cricket experts Roland Butcher and Kathryn Leng, both of whom played Test cricket for England.
Stephen also has a close connection with the FairBreak movement, whose mission is to progress gender equality on a truly global scale, using cricket as its primary vehicle.
