"ANTHONY PATRICK McCOY has broken both shoulder blades, both collar bones, his ankles, wrists, cheekbones, ribs, his leg and back and along with several chipped teeth and numerous dislocated thumbs the greatest jump jockey to ever grace planet Earth " - A Racing Passion

A spur of the moment decision led Mr & Mrs Pieman heading for Bangor is y Coed for the first meeting of the new National Hunt season on an extremely pleasant and warm evening.

A while since we have been and a little under prepared, form wise, we still had a great time. There were some excellent close races with an even split between hurdles and chase races.

A good atmosphere with a few improvements since our last visit. Although the standard of equine talent was not the greatest, they came from the best yards and carried some of the best jockeys including the very best, Mr A P McCoy aka the Bionic Man.
