From the Gold Cup to the Grand National, AP McCoy has prevailed in almost all of the biggest national hunt races on the planet and it was an absolute delight to have him attend.
The interview gave a fantastic insight into the life of the most famous jump jockey of all time.
Sir A.P McCoy, expressed how pleased he was to attend the evening "I am delighted to come along to the Chanelle Vet UK sponsored Liphook Equine Hospital Client Evening.

Giles Summerhays Partner (retired) at Liphook Equine Hospital spoke saying “I want to thank you for your part in organising such a superb evening. The rapport between Mattie and AP was brilliant, and at times I thought their faultless timing must have been scripted. Please pass on my thanks to all involved”
