Recognising Jump Racing brilliance across The Jockey Club
Following the success of the first ever McCoys South West Jump Awards that were hosted at Cheltenham Racecourse on Friday 29th September 2017, where winners such as JP McManus, Paul Nicholls, Harry Cobden, James Bowen, Many Clouds and Ollie McPhail won a prestigious McCoy statue, we are pleased to announce that they will be hosted again on Friday 28th September 2018. The awards which celebrate the outstanding contributions to the sport will now involve all Jockey Club Jumps Racecourses during the 2017/18 season.
The awards are named The McCoys after Sir AP McCoy, the record-breaking 20-time champion Jump jockey who retired from race riding in April 2015. The awards will reflect on the triumphs and the highlights of the season and appreciate every character in the sport. From the unwavering support of owners to the often unsung dedication of stable staff, The McCoys exist to recognise the individuals without whom this sport would not prosper as it does.
