McCoy breaks Grand National jinx

Fourteen-times champion jockey Tony McCoy won the Grand National here at Aintree on Saturday for the first time in 15 attempts on Don't Push It.

The 10-1 joint favourite - also giving trainer Jonjo O'Neill and owner JP McManus their first win - beat long-time Irish leader Black Apalachi by five lengths with last year's fourth State of Play third and the other joint favourite Big Fella Thanks fourth.

"It means everything to win it - I've won lots of big races and I'm supposed to be a good jockey, but to not win the Grand National would be a bit of a negative on the CV," gasped a visibly moved McCoy, the only jockey to ride 3000 national hunt winners. LIVERPOOL, England, Sunday, AFP
