"McCoy" celebrates the country's most successful jump jockey, Tony 'AP' McCoy, in the year in which he won the world's most famous horse race, the Grand National. "McCoy" will be 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.
Brough Scott will edit and introduce the book. "The Racing Post" has been lucky enough to fully chronicle in both words and pictures AP's phenomenal achievements of the last 15 years.
This book will gather together the best of this material to give a unique picture of the finest sportsman currently operating in any discipline anywhere.' Linked pieces by Scott will join the historical articles together and set them in context, coupled with the Post's unique library of images.
