The Real McCoy

AP McCoy on the Liver building

Liverpool's Liver building was illuminated with an image of one of AP McCoy's finest moments last night. The projection of him winning the world famous Grand National on Don’t Push It in 2010 – together with the words “The Greatest Jockey. The Greatest Race.”

“This year AP McCoy will break yet another record when he becomes the jockey to have had the most rides in the history of the Grand National. Ahead of his retirement and his last ever ride in the race we, together with Great British Racing and the City of Liverpool, felt it appropriate to do something special to honour this sporting legend.”

– John Baker of Aintree racecourse
