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.
