Product description

McCoy celebrates the country's most successful jump jockey, Tony 'AP' McCoy, winner of the 2010 BBC Sports Personality of the Year. McCoy is a wonderful record of the champion jump jockey's career in both words and images, chronicling his rise with trainer Jim Bolger and his first winner in 1992, his move to England in 1994 with Toby Balding, joining Martin Pipe in 1995 and his various big-race winners on the likes of Pridwell, Edredon Bleu, Best Mate, Brave Inca, Binocular and, of course, Don't Push It, on which he won the Grand National at the 15th attempt. This book gives a unique picture of the finest sportsman currently operating in any discipline anywhere. Linked pieces by Brough Scott will join the historical articles from "The Racing Post" together and set them in context, coupled with "The Post's" unique library of images.
