AP McCoy – Jockey Profile


As one of the most revered names in racing history, Sir Anthony Peter McCoy – AP, or Tony, to most – is a true legend of the sport. With over 4,300 winners – a record – and Champion Jockey twenty times in a row, McCoy is one of the most legendary competitors to ever hop onto the saddle. Many online and betting shop punters made a pretty penny when lumping on horses ridden by McCoy.


Having rode his first winner at 17, he went from there to win his first Champion Jockey in the 95/96 season, culminating in continuous success and defence until his final year where he won it, in 2015.

Career Summary

With too many to list, the main statement to make about McCoy is that he’s just won about every big race that there is to win. From the Cheltenham Gold Cup to the Queen Mother Champion Chase, McCoy has been a serial trophy winner in one of the most stellar and important careers in the history of the sport.

He’s even won the coveted BBC Sports Personality of the Year, lifting it in 2010 and in the process becoming the first jockey to lift the award. In January 2016, McCoy was finally knighted to culminate a career that is all about success and impressive wins.

There’s literally too many outstanding races to pick from in one of the most collective showings of the hard work and the rewards that can come from being a jockey.
