The race result that left Matthew Richardson ‘really, really flat’
Oh dear… What might have been!
Matthew Richardson joined Sportsday for his regular slot on Wednesday night with Gerard Healy and Sam McClure.
The trio had just finished an interview with West Coast coach Adam Simpson when they noticed a horse had won a race at an eye-watering price in Perth.
The horse’s name? Richardson.
It was sporting yellow and black silks.

“I’m really, really flat,” Richo said with a laugh.
