Congrats to the legend that is Tony McCoy. An incredible achievement. I can see him reaching 3500 possibly even 4000. As the majority of really good steeplechase jockeys manage around 100 winners per season they would have to ride for 30 seasons straight to match his achievements. I would be surprised if his stats are ever beaten and I hope he gets that elusive National win before he retires.
Congrats AP truely world class, hope you have a great Cheltenham festival and a great ride on Binocular. To win the champion hurdle would round the year of nicely!
id love to see him win the national this season
While there is no doubting McCoy's skills and horsemanship I feel that many other riders have faced the same issues as the flat guys did in a certain Mr Pigott's heyday in that many are jocked off their retained stable horses purely because he is available. I hope he does go on and ride many more winners but not at the expense of other jocks.
this is the problem with public forums ! they get highjacked by imbiciles with their own agenda's ! Krap! take yourself elswhere sunshine! Your are a lonely bitter whopper who really should get out more !!
The insulting of someone coming on here and announcing their opinions is completely unecessary. His/Her opinions are on the subject of the horses' wellbeing which is, after all, very close to all us racing fans' hearts.However, coming on a horse racing forum to make such points is basically just asking for trouble.
