Goodbye Tony McCoy

Post by Admin

Horse racing fans bid a final farewell at Cheltenham today to horse rider Tony McCoy.

There was no fairytale third Cheltenham Gold Cup triumph or even a final Festival winner for the champion jockey on Friday but that did not stop nearly 70,000 racegoers hailing Tony McCoy one last time.

Clapped and cheered all the way back to the paddock as the fog closed in and the light faded, McCoy was presented with a gold trophy.

"I very much appreciate it and obviously I'm going to miss being a jockey," he said.

"I was very honoured and flattered to have the last race named after me this year... the people in racing are fantastic and I'll always be grateful for the appreciation shown.
