Tony "A.P." McCoy is unquestionably the greatest and most successful jump-jockey of all time. He has collected a record 16 consecutive jump jockey titles to date, and since 1992 he has ridden more than 3,000 winners, saying "I never stop dreaming of the day I'll reach 4,000." In 2002, he beat Sir Gordon Richards' record of 269 winners in a season by riding 289. In April 2010 AP achieved his lifelong ambition when he won the Grand National at Aintree on Don't Push It. It was his 15th attempt to win the race, a victory that captured the public's imagination and irradiated a glittering career in which he had already won all there was to win. It was the final missing piece in the racing jigsaw for a champion jockey who had already had famous victories in the King George VI Chase, Champion Hurdle, Champion Chase, and Cheltenham Gold Cup. This powerfully honest autobiography looks at life at the very top in National Hunt racing. These are the memoirs of a true champion, an icon of sport, whose astonishing achievements over the past 15 years are unlikely to be surpassed. It is a great story of courage and modesty, pain and professional setbacks, strong family values and sporting triumphs, the good guy coming first—and staying there.

About the Author:

Tony "A. P." McCoy has been racing in England since 1994 and is widely recognized as one of the greatest National Hunt jockeys of all time. In only two of the last 13 years has he failed to win Jump Jockey of the Year.

Review:

All-time-great jump jockey AP McCoy, who has just clocked up his 4,000th winner, recalls the highs and occasional lows of his career * HORSE AND COUNTRYSIDE * Astonishing... it is breathtaking in its honesty, brutal in its examination of the subject's character. * THE GLASGOW HERALD * revealing and entertaining * THE JOURNAL *
