McCoy third on Sandown swansong

first_img McCoy bows out having been crowned the leading rider for the last 20 seasons, with the trophy awarded for one final time before his ride in the Celebration Chase earlier in the afternoon. A total of 4,357 career winners have been banked since he first struck gold with Legal Steps at Thurles in March 1992, with Capard King giving him a final triumph at Ayr on April 17. He has set reams of records during that time, most notably posting an incredible 289 winners in the 2001-2 season, surpassing Sir Gordon Richards’ long-standing record of 269 victories. McCoy said: “I’ve been very lucky and very blessed to have the life I’ve had. What I’d say to the young lads in the weighing room is to enjoy every minute of it. I’m a little embarrassed by everything’s that’s gone on and I feel very privileged. I wish it could go on a little longer. “I’m sure someone will beat them (his record-breaking achievements) but I hope it’s not any time soon.” McCoy has yet to announce what he will do next, but admits his next challenge will be transitioning to life outside of the weighing room. He said: “The biggest regret is that I don’t have any qualifications. Training is not an option and I don’t do comebacks. I have been in racing so long it will take a little while to get out of that regime and start to eat like a normal person. “From my own personal point of view, announcing it when I did was the best thing for me.” McCoy is a renowned Arsenal fan and hopes to make a few more trips to the Emirates Stadium now he is no longer required on track every weekend. He said: “The last time I had an Arsenal season ticket I only went to about two games. I seem to go more often when I don’t have one. The club have been very good to me in getting me tickets sorted when I want one.” Referring to Box Office’s third place, O’Neill joked: “The way he rode that, he’ll never ride for me again! “He’s the greatest man in the game. He’s good to work with, a true professional. What I can say does not justify how great he is. We will not see the like of him again.” Winning rider Richard Johnson has continually finished runner-up in the title race to McCoy and paid an emotional tribute to his long-time rival and friend. He said: “It’s a sad day. He’s been one of my best friends for a long time. It’s great to ride a winner but it’s an amazing day for him, he’s the one we should look at today. “He’s been a great friend and to work with, I couldn’t sit next to a better fellow. Twenty years of good memories and we will still be friends for a long time.” McCoy also finished third on his penultimate ride aboard Mr Mole in the bet365 AP McCoy Celebration Chase. He raced prominently on the Paul Nicholls-trained runner but the writing was on the wall as he began to push along at the third-last fence as eventual winner Special Tiara kicked for home. While Mr Mole kept on at the one pace, McCoy could not reel back the 3-1 favourite, who ran out a six-length victor. McCoy was given a thunderous reception upon his return from the track with Mr Mole, and said: “This is all way beyond my expectations. I’ve had a great way of life for the last 25 years, and working with great people has made it that much more enjoyable.” The crowds cheered McCoy from the moment he entered the paddock to mount the 5-2 favourite, applauding him past the stands on the way to the start of the two-and-a-half-mile heat. Another shout of approval heralded the start, with McCoy settling Box Office towards the rear in the early stages before he started to manoeuvre across the track as the race began in earnest. However, despite travelling well three flights from home, the Jonjo O’Neill-trained runner found little under pressure and had to settle for a place behind Brother Tedd (9-1). Press Association Tony McCoy had to settle for third aboard Box Office on the final ride of his career in the bet365 Handicap Hurdle at Sandown. A tearful McCoy said: “It’s amazing. I’ve been so lucky all my life. I’ll never forget this day.” He was mobbed by fervent racegoers upon his return from the track, where he was given a hero’s welcome. “It’s been a very emotional day and thanks to everyone for coming,” he said. “It’s fantastic, it’s very special. I would like to thank all the racing public for coming here. It’s a day I’ll never forget.” McCoy admitted he had endured a sleepless night ahead of his final hurrah. He said: “I have kind of been getting used to it over the last couple of weeks and that is the reason I haven’t ridden much over the last couple of weeks – to get me used to retirement. “Last night was probably the only time in 40 years that I have not slept and I am a very good sleeper.” The 40-year-old’s departure marks the end of his long domination of the National Hunt sphere, which yielded 31 Cheltenham Festival winners as well as two Gold Cups and one famous Grand National success. last_img read more

On ISSA, schoolboy football and unruly behaviour

first_img dangerous behaviour This reprimand is so numbing in its inappropriateness, that it boggles my mind. Perpetrators of such rank indiscipline and potentially dangerous behaviour should not be allowed access to further games involving that school. That is a given, even if it means that ISSA will not be able to collect gate receipts that can offset the cost of putting on the game. At some stage, Jamaicans must realise that if the cost of unruly and dangerous behaviour is far less than the reward for unruly and dangerous behaviour, then no amount of divine intervention will curtail future similar occurrences. Giving a ‘bly’ If the people who murder our fellow citizens and rape our women and children thought for a moment that being caught and punished was a reality instead of the present 80% chance that their identity will remain unknown, or if by some stroke of luck they are indicted, then a good lawyer and the ability to have prosecution postponed year after year will almost guarantee no punishment. It is the little things that matter. The New York City mayor and police force recognised some years ago, that if you start by fixing the broken windows and prosecuting anyone who breaks the law (riding on the sidewalk for example), crime statistics will dramatically be reduced. This attitude of giving a ‘bly’ only serves to incentivise miscreants. After the weeping and wailing of those justifiably severely punished for ‘stoning the ref’, such incidents will cease, thus improving spectator comfort, sending a message to the children who attend the schools and eventually improving revenue as more supporters and spectators will feel that their safety and the spirit of sport are in good hands. Football in particular, and sport in general, is a part of the holistic education of our children and our people. It must never be the ‘reason’ to go to school! The school teams are now sponsored (some more than others) and it seems as if the other aspects of school life are now on the back-burner. The playing surfaces remain woeful and the prevailing drought conditions are definitely not helpful. In the ISSA-controlled schoolboy competition, night games are being introduced for what can only be described as ‘revenue enhancement’. I suppose it matters not if children coming home from night games are exposed to increased danger from ‘evil’, as long as ISSA collects at the gate, (“ah-nuh-nutten”). Already there are reports of coaches of “small” schools complaining bitterly of the poaching of talented youngsters by affiliates of “big” schools, despite the welcome efforts of the Ministry of Education to minimise this nefarious practice. The administration of activities in any civilised society depends on the strict adherence to agreed rules by the participants. Rules that are broken or ignored will only serve to incentivise those looking on to “act accordingly” if the cost of breaking a rule is far less than the benefit derived from adhering to the rule. It now seems (to me) that if the supporters of a school do not agree with a referee’s decision in a closely contested game, then by all means “stone the ref” and cause the game to be abandoned. The team was going to lose the match anyway, but now the ref (or any other authoritative figure) will be well aware that “when-it-comes-to-this-school… no bother mek we lose!” .(stoning the ref) be rewarded by a loss of points and “don’t do it again.”last_img read more
