Tony McCoy speaks about his Ryanair win on Uxizandre
Dec 2008 Midlands National. Last leg on scoop 6 £258K win fund, £1.8 million bonus pot!!
McCoy - Kilbeggan Blade, "old boy with little chance". I had first 5 winners up and one of 2 tickets left on KB. Three out no chance, well for anyone else but Tony McCoy. He hit the front on the run in and was about to be taken by fast finishing Erics Charm on the outside. McCoy in front wavered slightly off his line and blocked the charge. The ceiling still has my knuckle print £128 K win and a shot at £1.8 million. Alas tables where turned with bonus horse coming second but thanks to Tony McCoy my family's life changed for ever.
Never mind Lineman or any other winner McCoy will forever be tops in my book for a fantastic win only he could make happen. Needless to say I voted for him and he will always be my top sport personality. You have no equal at what you do and will be sadly missed. Have a great life Tony you have earned it for certain .lawrenceMar 11, 2015 at 1:41 PM
