Tony McCoy lands another winner at Ffos Las
TONY McCoy rarely leaves Ffos Las without a winner — and the 16-time champion jockey scored again at the course on Monday.
McCoy, by some distance the leading jockey at the Carmarthenshire course, took the richest race of the day — the Weatherbys Bank Handicap Hurdle — on board Open Day.
McCoy brought the seven-year-old with a well-timed run to join the leaders at the second-last flight. And Open Day began to assert on the run to the line to hold off the challenge of Radmores Revenge.
Lava Lamp, who was backed into 9-4 favourite for Llancarfan trainer Evan Williams, was well back in third.

But Williams enjoyed more luck just 30 minutes later when Di Kaprio landed the two-mile five-furlong handicap chase.
The 9-4 chance made all the running and ran out a comfortable winner ahead of favourite Trojan Sun.
Ffos Las chairman Dai Walters enjoys a trip to the winner's enclosure at his home course and made another visit there after the first race of the day.
This time it was via Whisky Yankee, who broke his duck over hurdles in the hands of Daryl Jacob.
The six-year-old always looked likely to collect, but in the end had to be shaken up to hold off the persistent challenge of 6-4 favourite Creepy.
