Rode his 4000th winner today, for people not interested in racing this is an unbelievable achievement as no other jockey has won 2000, for those that are and didn't see the race have a look as soon as you can, the horse traded at 49/1 in running but he managed to get it up and win.

Quite simply a living legend.

What sort of hit rate is that? 4000 out of how many races?

Anyone worked out if betting on him would have been profitable?

15000 rides, not sure if it's been profitable, doubt it as loads of his are massively overbet.

Yes, it was 4-0, you obviously saw the game in the pub and think all your players are 3 inches tall. Next question.

I'm not into racing but heard them talking about this in the morning on the BBC the other day. They said that he had a bad fall the other year and has got plates and all sorts in him Shocked

McCoy has been profitable when riding under 11 stone.
