Product description

Tony McCoy is incredibly driven. Fighting his way to the top from a tough, Northern Irish background, he has collected fifteen consecutive jockey of the year titles, yet lives in fear of slipping from the pinnacle. His record-breaking 3,000th win is behind him, and the chances are that he'll quit while ahead in 2011. This autobiography looks at life at the top in National Hunt racing. He achieved his lifetime ambition in April 2010 when he won the Grand National at Aintree on Don't Push It. It was his fifteenth attempt to win the race, a victory he described as 'surreal' in a career in which he had already won all there was to win. Tony was the first to ride 2,000 then 3,000 winners and no matter how many winners he notches up, he says: "it probably won't be enough. I never stop dreaming of the day I'll reach 4,000." There's no question Tony McCoy is the greatest National Hunt jockey ever - 'The man is a colossus, we have never seen his like before,' John McCririck - and his powerfully honest memoirs commemorate a spectacular career.
