AP McCoy unveils 2017 Randox Health Grand National trophy at Weights Event

It stands at 45 centimetres tall, is solid silver gilded with gold, and depicts horses galloping through strands of DNA – and in just over 50 days will be presented to the winner of the 2017 Randox Health Grand National.

The sought-after trophy was unveiled by Dr Peter FitzGerald, founder of Randox, and 20-time Champion Jockey Sir Anthony McCoy at the annual Weights Reception, held this year in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. The Northern Irish sporting legend won the Grand National in 2010 and has now joined Randox Health as a brand ambassador.

Dr. Peter FitzGerald, Founder and Managing Director of Randox Health, said,

“To win the Grand National is one of the crowning achievements in sport and in this our first year of sponsorship, we sought to commission a trophy which would complement this tremendous success. I am delighted with the result, as the trophy captures the heart of both the race and Randox – in the speed of the horses and the strands of DNA. I look forward to the moment this trophy is presented to the winner of the 2017 Randox Health Grand National and wish everyone taking part the very best.  

“As sponsor we sought to further recognise the achievements of the winning team, which will join a cast of legends. This year for the first time and for every year of our partnership, the trainer, jockey and groom will receive a scale representation of the trophy, as we pay tribute to the teamwork that goes into achieving such monumental success.”

As the trophy was unveiled on stage in the V&A its designer, Silversmith Shannon O’Neill, explained to the audience the thinking behind her design and the work involved in creating such an iconic piece of art.

“As an artist, you search for that foothold of inspiration in every commission. With Randox, that came immediately. I wanted to depict the pursuit of glory in the race with the pursuit of health. For me, nothing is more positive than encouraging people to take control of their lives in order to achieve greatness – in whatever field they choose.

“Months of hard work have gone in to designing and creating the piece of art that will this year become the trophy awarded to the first ever winner of the Randox Health Grand National. I look forward to seeing this trophy put into the hands of the victor!”

The official reveal of the trophy has come after a number of weeks of teaser images released to the public, following its hallmarking at the Goldsmith’s Assay Office in London on the 24th January.

Guests were also given an exclusive viewing of Randox’s virtual reality film which stars Sir Anthony McCoy and reveals what goes on inside a Randox Health clinic, including a look at its revolutionary ‘Evolution’ blood screening machine.

The full virtual reality video will be displayed at the Randox Health Grand National on Thursday 6th April.

Randox are rolling out additional clinics across the country including in Liverpool and Manchester, and internationally including Dubai and in the USA.

20-time Champion Jockey Sir Anthony McCoy partners with Grand National sponsor Randox Health for new campaign to transform the health of the nation

In advance of the highly anticipated Randox Health Grand National 2017, the race’s new sponsor is launching a nation-wide campaign to encourage people to take control of their health and wellbeing, with the help of legendary jockey AP McCoy.

Global healthcare company Randox Health is offering one lucky winner the chance to join AP on its elite team of brand ambassadors, which also includes Olympic Sailor Matt McGovern. The winner of the competition will receive the world’s most advanced personalised health check – the Randox Health Signature Programme, as well as tickets to the Randox Health Grand National 2018, and an iPad Pro.

Via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, entrants have to submit a photograph and accompanying text to tell the world’s greatest jockey why they want to #FeelLikeAP and enjoy a healthier future.

AP McCoy has encouraged others to start thinking about their health and commented;

“I’m delighted to be involved with such a positive campaign, asking people to think about their health and why it is so important to them, and to take preventive action to secure it. The information I got from my Randox Health check showed I was on the path to getting diabetes and needed to address low calcium levels and malnutrition among other things which could – if left untreated – have been big problems. But I can take action now to prevent this.

“Some people may be inclined to wait until you feel ill before going to the doctor but it’s better to do what you can to prevent it from happening, if you can.”

 Dr. Peter FitzGerald, Founder and Managing Director of Randox Health, launched the new health campaign by saying;

“AP McCoy has a special place in the hearts of millions of people across the world – those who shared his passion and were inspired by his commitment and drive. By spreading the Randox message of preventive health, he is giving back to those supporters by giving them the tools to live not just a long life but a healthy one too.

“Right across society, too many people suffer from preventable illnesses, and almost a quarter of all deaths under 75 in the UK are avoidable. The solution is to reduce the risk of becoming ill and we achieve that through preventive health. It’s no longer enough sto say you’re healthy today. The diagnostics exist and are being used in our Randox Health clinics to tell you how to be healthy in the future as well.

“This is not just a competition we are launching with AP, but a nationwide campaign which I hope will create a sea-change in how we view our health.” 

 To enter the #FeelLikeAP competition and be in with a chance to join AP as a Randox Health brand ambassador, win a Randox Health Signature Programme, 2 tickets to the Randox Health Grand National 2017, and an iPad Pro, you must:

  • follow Randox Health on either Facebook, Instagram or Twitter
  • upload a photo
  • tell AP and Randox Health why your future health matters to you.  Don’t forget to include the hashtag #FeelLikeAP.

Horse-racing’s most successful jockey AP McCoy joins Grand National sponsor Randox Health

In time for the return of the highly anticipated jump season, Randox Health, the new sponsor of the Grand National has unveiled the 20-time Champion Jump Jockey Sir Anthony McCoy as its brand ambassador. It signals a new era of sponsorship for the racing industry and is an active move to promote a healthier and more positive lifestyle for jockeys and fans alike.

Randox is a world leader in the promotion of effective preventive care and long-term wellbeing. The global diagnostics company, the new sponsor of the Randox Health Grand National and the Official Healthcare Partner of The Jockey Club, is opening healthcare clinics across the UK, Ireland, US and Middle East which will revolutionise healthcare through the use of its patented biochip array technology.

Using a comprehensive range of blood tests and biochip arrays, Randox enables early and accurate diagnosis of a wide range of clinical conditions and can carry out risk assessments on longer term threats including Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Sir Anthony McCoy commented;

“My days of competitive horse racing might be behind me, but I’ve no intention of slowing down. I always try and enjoy life to the full, and staying healthy is key to that.  You’re happiest when you’re healthy, and that’s why I’m delighted to be an ambassador for Randox Health. They’re leading the field in preventive healthcare and can give you an entire breakdown on not only how healthy you are now, but also on future risks and how best to maintain your health.”

 Randox founder Dr Peter FitzGerald welcomed the announcement;

“AP McCoy didn’t leave any aspect of his racing career to guesswork and he is making sure the next stage of his life is no different. He is recognised around the world as an incredible sportsman who pushed his body to its limits during his career. I am delighted now that he is working with Randox Health to ensure not only that he stays healthy, but that his fans do too. Our goal is to transform global healthcare – it’s not enough to achieve long life on its own, we must strive for long health too. Given the choice, few people will leave that to chance. By joining forces with the world’s most popular jockey and the world’s most popular horse-race, we believe we can share that message and improve people’s health across the world.”

 One of the central pillars of the partnership between AP McCoy and Dr FitzGerald is a shared love of horses. Randox has worked for over 20 years with the equine industry in delivering products to ensure the health and well-being of endurance racehorses. The complete equine health programme includes tests that minimise the risk of injury to horses by measuring the impact of training. Randox has worked with the Irish Equine Centre and 15-times National Hunt Champion, Martin Pipe.

Randox Health Clinics are currently located in London and Belfast, with ambitious plans to roll out a number of new centres across the UK and internationally including in LA and Dubai. Using the latest blood science technology, Randox’s scientists analyse over 350 different indicators of your body’s wellbeing across a range of different areas including cancer surveillance, fertility, heart, nutritional, digestive and diabetes health.  Not only do you find out how healthy you are now, but you are also empowered with the knowledge of how you can stay healthy for years to come.
