First Ffos Las 50 for McCoyHeadlines

Tony McCoy reached another landmark in his remarkable career when becoming the first jockey to ride 50 winners at Ffos Las.

The 17-times champion has a tremendous strike-rate at the Carmarthenshire venue, and a double from the first two races on the card saw him reach the half-century.

Since Ffos Las opened in the summer of 2009, McCoy has ridden more winners only at Worcester of all the courses in Britain.

Winner number 49 came courtesy of the Rebecca Curtis-trained At Fishers Cross in the wyevalleydemolition.co.uk Novices' Hurdle, the 4-7 favourite obliging by two and a half lengths.

Next up was stablemate Boyfromnowhere in the Dunraven Windows Novices' Hurdle and he too kept favourite-backers happy, returning at 6-4 after an 11-length triumph.

McCoy, who rode a treble at the track's opening fixture on June 18, 2009, was presented with a painting of his first winner that day, Sea Wall, by racecourse chairman Dai Walters.

General manager and clerk of the course Tim Long said: "AP McCoy is a phenomenon. His feats in the saddle may never be surpassed and it is no surprise that he is top jockey here at Ffos Las by some distance."
