AP McCoy Just Two Short Of Magical 4000 Winners Mark

Tuesday 5th November 2013
Ap Mccoy

Excitement has been building for some time now among racing fans with Champions Jockey AP McCoy nearing another remarkable landmark. McCoy has already re-written the record books on countless occasions but that could pale into insignificance this week when he reaches 4000 winners. The champ is just two winners short of the magical 4000 mark and with three rides this afternoon at Exeter, that achievement is surely on the horizon.

McCoy has been in great form in recent weeks as he has relentlessly racked up the winners on his way to another thrilling start to the season. He is already on the path to another Championship with the 4000 winner barrier set to be smashed to pieces by the man from Northern Ireland. McCoy rode another couple of winners at Kempton on Monday to get within touching distance of creating history and few would be surprised if he surpassed that total sooner, rather than later.

McCoy has won just about every big race there is to win in the sport but he clearly remains as motivated and as committed as ever to riding winners. He is already well through the 100 winners mark for the season with the rest of the weighing room lagging well behind. No other jockey in the history of the sport is remotely close to 3000 winners, let alone the 4000 mark, which highlights the size of this sporting achievement.

Exeter was the venue for McCoy's first British winner back in 1994 so it would be fitting if he could also pick up his 4000th success at the Devon track this afternoon. If he fails to reach the landmark at Exeter it is likely that racing fans will be able to see McCoy at either Carlisle or Chepstow on Wednesday where the feat will surely be achieved. McCoy has been in stunning form in recent days with 14 successes from his last ten meetings as he rolls towards a remarkable sporting achievement.
