Northern Irish jockey AP McCoy took his tally of career wins to 4,192 on Saturday, passing a record he shared with former trainer Martin Pipe.

The 40-year-old McCoy rode It’s A Gimme to victory at a meeting at Market Rasen.

Pipe trained 4,191 winners – many of whom were ridden by McCoy – before retiring in 2006.

McCoy says ”the record was just a very personal thing between me and Mr. Pipe . I will be putting in a satisfying call tonight.”

McCoy was presented with a 20-kilogram cheese by the management at Market Rasen in honor of his achievement.
