AP McCoy on the Gold Cup
Sir AP McCoy is an ambassador for William Hill and he says although he was tempted to come out of retirement, he won’t be getting back in the saddle for this year’s Cheltenham Gold Cup.
McCoy: “You do sometimes think when you get on a nice horse like More Of That, ‘I could ride another Gold Cup winner if I rode him’ but even though I’ve had a lot of bangs on the head, I’m not stupid enough to come back.
“It’s better to have people ask ‘why did you retire?’ rather than ‘why haven’t you retired?’.”
More Of That is McCoy’s pick for this year’s Gold Cup which takes place on Friday, with the 20-time Champion Jockey providing daily selections for William Hill.
