Channel Four Racing Presenters - Rishi Persad

Rishi Persad is part of the brand new Channel Four Racing Team for 2013 and he brings with him a wealth of broadcasting experience. Persad has been a regular on Racing UK for the past few years as well as the BBC for all the major meetings on the Channel. He is liekly to be used by Channel Four as on track reporter and interviewer rather than as an anchor and his broadcasting experience should add a professional touch to the programme.

Persad has been on a regualr on the BBC for many years both on their horse racing coverage and their wider sporting output. He was a key part of the team during the Olympic Games while he has also featured at the Open Championship and Wimbledon in recent years proving he is more than used to the big occasion.

Persad does have a relaxed style to his presenting which should fit in well on Channel Four and punters can expect to see him on their screens during all the big meetings like the Cheltenham Festival and the Derby at Epsom. He has also been seen on Sky Sports in the past when he fronted their coverage of the Dubai International Carnival at Meydan each Thursday which was another impressive string to his broadcasting bow.
