Horsepower, the acclaimed four-part documentary series following the fortunes of trainer Andrew Balding and jockey Oisin Murphy, will be available to watch on BBC platforms from Tuesday, July 9.

All four episodes will be on BBC iPlayer, with the first two episodes set to be broadcast on Tuesday evening on BBC Four and the final two episodes broadcast on BBC Four a week later.

Produced by Lorton Entertainment and Equine Productions, Horsepower was filmed from autumn 2020 through to the summer of 2021, providing behind-the-scenes access as its two main protagonists prepare for one of the most prestigious events in the global sporting calendar, the five days of Royal Ascot.

Jo Lapping, head of factual acquisition at the BBC, said, “We’re delighted to be bringing Horsepower to the BBC. The extraordinary access the series gives to life at a racing stable provides real insight to the commitment, hard work and occasional drama behind each race, making Horsepower a riveting watch for both fans and newcomers to the sport.”
