National winner Don’t Push It retired

Posted on | 0 Responses

Don't Push It, the horse that finally brought legendary rider Tony McCoy his Grand National victory at the 15th time of asking in 2010, has been retired by his trainers.

Trained by Jonjo O'Neill and owned by JP McManus, the horse will spend his retirement at the latter's Martinstown Stud in Co Limerick.

Equine insurance customers will remember the joy on McCoy's face as he finally got over the line in first place at Aintree and the rider took to Twitter to state his disappointment that the animal had been retired. He said Don't Push It had given him his greatest day in racing but he is happy that the horse is retiring "safe and sound".

"He's in great form and he's doing everything grand at home, but he's just not showing us the same old sparkle. We are doing the right thing in retiring him," O'Neill said of the retirement.

Last month, former Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Denman was retired after receiving damage to his near fore tendon.
