Fantastic achievement, no doubt about it, but it's such a difficult sport to figure out how much is jockey and how much is horse.

If Richard Johnson had rode all McCoys rides over the years do you not think he would be on 4000 now?

Ifs buts and maybes I guess, but yeah it's a fantastic record either way.

Dunwoody was great jockey the horse did really dig in was truly a great effort after looking beat two out but it was a truly fantastic ride by McCoy.

I truly don't think he would Deano I have seen A P win on some horses where only he would have won on iv'e seen him virtually carry horses across the line.

Similar to F 1 for me. Think there are a great op grade drivers/riders. Not all get the right car/gee gee.

But totally agree, don't follow racing at all really, but a fabulous achievement for sure.

I can see where your coming from but McCoy has won on horses where others would have give in and accepted defeat he really has won on horses where he had no right to win.As for the best horse wins the race if only as a gambler that would make picking horses so much easier I certainly wouldn't want to be a bookie in a perfect world.
