If you’re looking for a long term bet, and I mean a VERY long term bet, then how about the latest odds that have come out for A.P. McCoy‘s newly born son to be Champion Jockey by the year 2045?
Ap and his wife Chanelle recently welcomed little Archie McCoy into to the world and no sooner had the little fella arrived and Coral were clambering to offer odds of 33/1 that he would follow in his father’s footsteps and head to the jumps to go on become Champion Jockey at some point in the next 32 years.
Looking towards other very successful families in racing such as the Walsh’s, Scudamore’s, Pipe’s and Carberry’s, Coral Bookmakers decided that it was a fairly safe bet to also assume that little Archie would also take to the fences as he gets older.
There’s no doubt that Tony McCoy’s children will probably do their fair share of horse riding but becoming Champion Jockey is another matter entirely and takes years and years of perseverance and dedication but if either of his kids do master the art, then undoubtedly they’ll be getting plenty of advice from their Dad and at 33/1 it’s not unrealistic though you could be waiting a very long time for the payout!
