Newton Abbot Racecourse has commissioned a bronze sculpture of jockey AP McCoy to recognise his achievements and contribution to the sport.
The sculpture will be unveiled before the start of the first race today and will go on show in the weighing room at the racecourse.
The bronze sculpture was created by William Newton, a sculptor based in Wincanton. The unveiling will mark the end of the 2014 racing season at Newton Abbot Racecourse.
Tomorrow's horse racing at Exeter has been cancelled following today's rain and the prospect of further heavy downpours.
