The life of a runner, mother, radiopharmacist and vicar's wife – that's me!
As the sun sets on an amazing career, the Telegraph yesterday reflected on the racing legend that is Tony McCoy. He will race his final race at Sandown tomorrow.
I rather liked this photo I took from the plane yesterday as we flew out of Amsterdam, kind of sums up the situation quite well with McCoy’s face reflected in the plane window.
I’m not a big racing fan, I’ve only been to the races once and I’m certainly not somebody who bets but I did wonder whether, if you had bet, say £10, on every race that Tony McCoy had been in whether you would have made or lost money. Many somebody has worked it out but, with 4000 winners by November 2013, I think that you probably won’t have done too badly.
I heard him being interviewed on Radio 5 before the Grand National, he had no idea what he was going to do once he had retired! I suspect that we haven’t heard the last from him though.
