Queen's Plate Week to Kick Off with Benefit at Early Mercy

Being AP ScreeningThis year marks the 157th running of Canada's most famous horse race, the Queen's Plate. To celebrate one of the city's oldest and chicest sporting traditions, filled with fashion and fast horses, we invite you to an exclusive screening of Being AP, a documentary that profiles the 2015 final season of 20-time Champion Jockey Sir AP McCoy. In terms of accomplishments, no athlete has dominated their sport like McCoy. 

Being AP, which debuted at TIFF to unanimous praise, offers a raw and unflinching look at the daily life of a man who has reigned over the sport every year he's been in the saddle and McCoy's agonizing decision to retire after two decades at the top of the game. 

This documentary is so much more than a film about a jockey, it's about closing a chapter that has defined your entire life.
