AP McCoy Sends Out Winning Pointer

AP McCoy Sends Out Winning Pointer

A new era began in preparation of the turn of the year for Sir Anthony McCoy, after he saddled his first point-to-point winner in Worcestershire on Friday.

Remember the name - Hudson Yard, who struck under Martin McIntyre at Chaddesley Corbett. He galloped to an impressive victory in Division I of the two-and-a-half mile maiden during Friday’s Harkaway Club fixture.

Hudson Yard officially runs in the name of his head groom Ciaran O'Brien, who did reveal afterwards that AP was responsible for the horse’s preparation, since she came over from Ireland two months ago.

"She might go to the sales; I think she could win a bumper, but we [personally] can't run her in a bumper because we haven't got the full licence. We'll keep things quiet and have the odd pointer when we can.

"This is actually a quiet time of year with yearlings having gone to trainers and jumpers are also going back racing, so it's nice to have a runner."

O'Brien praised the impact the man who rode 4,348 jumps winners has had on his yard.

(Credit: Racing Post) He added: "AP gets stuck in when he's about; he rides out, mucks out, but he is willing to get his hands dirty.'

Due to prior commitments at Leopardstown for their Christmas Festival, the 20-times champion jockey was unable to make the journey to the Worcestershire venue but was made aware of the success soon after the race.
