racing: McCoy leads tribute.

TONY McCOY led the fund raisers at Hereford yesterday on Cantor Fitzgerald UK Memorial Day as racing paid its respects to the thousands killed in the terrorists attack on America a year ago.

The champion jump jockey completed a four-timer on Ragdale Hall (7-2), Sunridge Fairy (4-6), Tiger Grass (11-8) and Phar From Fair (4-6).

And he even took the celebrity Flat race on Memorial Arch.

Cantor Sport, who sponsor McCoy, backed the seven-race programme on behalf of the Cantor Fitzgerald UK Charitable Relief Fund set up to support the families of the employees of the parent company who lost their lives on the attack on the World Trade Center in New York.
