Sir AP McCoy - A Sporting Legend is the ultimate celebration of the extraordinary career of this amazing sportsman, from his first winner in Ireland on the Flat in 1992 through to his final ride, ironically again on the Flat - in the Leger Legends Stakes at Doncaster.
Close friend and former jockey Mick Fitzgerald has written and compiled the book in collaboration with author Sean Magee, who has written many horseracing books including Lester's Derbys and Arkle.
This beautifully crafted book of more than 300 pages is case-bound in fantastic Peltouch cloth. It outlines the professional·and personal stages in AP's career, with anecdotes from family, friends, trainers, owners, fellow jockeys, doctors and medical staff who treated his many injuries, providing a section of x-rays and medical records.
