Ladbrokes back McCoy for BBC gong

09 December 2010

Bookmakers Ladbrokes are backing jockey Tony McCoy to win the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year award for the first time in his career  and have marked their support by releasing a jovial viral video featuring interviews with Grand National winner Don’t Push It and stablemate Can’t Buy Time!

Speaking about the video and the support shown in him by the bookies, McCoy remarked:

“It’s great that Ladbrokes and the racing industry as a whole have given me their backing.  I am really appreciative for the support I am receiving from all of the horse world.

“ I’m hoping to repay all the faith shown to me by horse racing fans and punters. The video’s light-hearted and great fun. I’ve often said horses make more sense than people and I think it’ll give people a good laugh!
