Tony McCoy continues his quest to make racing history when he returns to action at Exeter this afternoon following a short holiday in Marbella.
The champion jockey could equal Sir Gordon Richards’ record of 269 winners in a season set in 1947 today as he is just four short and has that number of rides at the Devon track.
As McCoy has until April 27 to set a new standard he decided to take a rare break after drawing a blank at Bangor on Saturday.
He kicks off today with rides in the first three events with his final mount coming in the last of a seven-race programme.
After partnering Tosawi for Ron Hodges in the 2.10, he has a brace for Martin Pipe Turkestan in the 2.40 and Nocksky in the 3.10 and he winds up with Miss Cool, also for Pipe, in the concluding 5.10 race.
