AP McCoy claimed the 4,000th victory of his career after winning on the second of two rides at Towcester on Thursday.


The 18-time champion reached the unprecedented milestone on Mountain Tunes in the 15:10 GMT race.



Richard Johnson (current jockey): 2,567


Ruby Walsh (current jockey): 2,220


Richard Dunwoody: 1,874

McCoy finished fifth on Church Field in the 14:10 GMT handicap hurdles.


His 3,999th win came at Chepstow on Wednesday after switching to Jonjo O'Neill's-trained Minella For Steak when original ride Mission Complete was declared a non-runner.


He also missed out on victory with his other ride at Chepstow - finishing fifth on El Macca in the opening race.


Doubles on three consecutive days took him to 3,998 wins following Monday's meeting at Kempton - but he drew a blank from three rides at Exeter on Tuesday.
