McCoy: The Complete Story celebrates the career of the UK's most successful jump jockey ever, Tony 'AP' McCoy. This book is a wonderful record of the 20-time champion jump jockey's career in both words and superb images from the unparalleled Racing Post library. It chronicles his big-race wins on such horses as Make A Stand, Edredon Bleu, Best Mate, Brave Inca, his Gold Cup winners Mr Mulligan and Synchronised – and of course his 2010 Grand National winner Don't Push It. Editor Brough Scott weaves together two decades of reporting McCoy in the pages of the Racing Post with unsurpassed photographic coverage to produce a worthy tribute to a remarkable man


"In McCoy that peerless racing correspondent Brough Scott pays tribute to AP's incredible career." —Jilly Cooper, author, the Rutshire Chronicles
