Winner: My Racing Life

A.P. McCoy

2 Reviews

Rated 0

Autobiography: sport, Prose: non-fiction, Horse racing

Now updated with a new chapter, the definitive autobiography by A.P. McCoy.

Fully updated with a new chapter on A.P.'s knighthood, the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Lifetime Achievement award and his new role as a TV pundit

When Tony 'A.P.' McCoy announced his retirement from racing, the shockwaves reverberated across the world of sport. With more than 4,300 winners to his name, McCoy seemed to be at the peak of his powers when he suddenly brought down the curtain on an extraordinary career.

But then A.P. McCoy has always done things his way.

In Winner: My Racing Life, AP reflects upon his unparalleled career, taking the reader from his humble beginnings in County Antrim to the emotional day at Sandown when horse racing bade a tearful farewell to arguably its greatest ever star. McCoy relates in forensic detail the process that led to his decision to retire, recalls some of his greatest rides, lifts the lid on his family life and looks ahead to a future no longer driven by the constant pursuit of victory. The result is a remarkable insight into the private and public life of a true winner.

Praise for Winner: My Racing Life

  • 'A careful and unfailingly generous memoir, with friends honoured, employers respected, opponents admired and family at the centre of everything. But, mainly, it is the story of winning, of talent allied to absolute single-mindedness, of a will to win that could power a small town' - Daily Mail

  • 'This is a fast-paced read that gallops along breathlessly from record to record, horse to horse. It starts close to the finish - two hurdles from home aboard Box Office at Sandown - and you are gripped from that moment on' - Racing Post
