Racing: Four-timer propels McCoy towards century

Click to follow
Tony McCoy, the champion jump jockey, moved on to 82 winners for the term after a near 82-1 four-timer at Taunton yesterday and stayed on course to break his own record for the fastest 100 winners in a season.

McCoy's wins came on Gray Pastel, Northern Drums and Mite Equal for Martin Pipe and Peter Bowen's Danger Baby. Last season McCoy hit the 100 mark on 21 November.

There was bad news at the track for Jamie Osborne, who was concussed after a fall on Royal Action. Osborne faces a rest of at least seven days and misses riding the fancied Father Sky in the Charisma Gold Cup at Kempton tomorrow.
