The Groundsmen are joined by Theo Westerman - owner of the winning horse at the 2022 Palio di Siena - one of the world's oldest sporting events. This was a remarkable achievement on so many levels.

Theo shares the history of this most special of sporting events and his own personal journey culminating in victory on 17th August. Brought to you by Sportsdigita.
