UK racing and sports betting news source the Racing Post has launched an interactive tribute wall to celebrate the career of legendary Ulster jockey Tony (AP) McCoy. The Racing Post has urged its readers to post farewell messages for retiring 19 time champion jockey who will ride for the last time at Sandown Surrey in two weeks’ time.
The Racing Post’s interactive Tribute Wall shares the following message for racing fans
“Tell us about the rides that have left you in awe, the big windfalls you’ve celebrated thanks to his supremacy in the saddle, the day you met the man himself – whatever your tribute, we’d love to hear it”.
“Racing Post update the tribute wall each day with our favourites, along with pictures of some of the many special moments we have enjoyed with Tony McCoy throughout his incredible career”
McCoy one of horse racing’s most popular figures, rode his final Aintree Grand National last Saturday on favourite ShutTheFrontDoor. The jockey was unable to sign off his Grand National career with a victory as he placed fifth.
McCoy commented on his final Grand National
“I’m going to miss riding horses like that and in races like that. I got a great buzz out of it and I thought for a long way he could win. It’s my last National, but it was a very enjoyable one.”
