McCoy out for 10 days
Wednesday 19 March 1997
Husband was quickly on his feet, but McCoy was still prostrate when the runners came around again on the second circuit and were waved around the hurdle. Unhurt, he soon regained consciousness but Dr Andy Toman, the course doctor, signed off the jockey for a mandatory 10 days because he had been knocked out for up to three minutes.
The fall came five days after Gold Cup victory on Mr Mulligan rounded off a magnificent Cheltenham for McCoy.
n Shirley Heights, winner of the 1978 Derby, has been put down at the age of 22.
