When Tony McCoy announced his retirement from racing, the shockwaves reverberated a cross the world of sport.
With more than 4,300 winners to his name, McCoy seemed to be at the peak of his powers, when he suddenly brought down the curtain on an extraordinary career.
But then McCoy has always done things his way!
WINNER, My Racing Life is an exceptional insight into one of horse racing’s heroes.
The single minded devotion that McCoy showed in his career, as a jockey, shines through in this detailed memoir.
Every person that mattered, and contributed to him, is respected and remembered. Memories, both private and public are revealed, and a sense of pride shines through this wonderfully written master piece.
AP reflects upon his unparalleled career, taking the reader from his humble beginnings in County Antrim, to the emotional day at Sandown when horse racing bade a tearful farewell to arguably its greatest ever star.
McCoy relates in forensic detail the process that led to his decision to retire, recalls some of his greatest rides, lifts the lid on his family life, and looks ahead to a future no longer driven by the constant pursuit of victory.
The result is a remarkable insight into the private and public life of a true winner.
Any fan of the Sport of Kings should read this book. It will not only reveal the true character of a champion, but inspire you to excel in whatever it is that you do!
