When Frankie Dettori stormed to victory on Golden Horn in the 2015
Derby, the effervescent Italian jockey was writing yet another
extraordinary chapter in a remarkable sporting story. This tribute
to hugely popular sportsman draws on the unique resources of the
Racing Post to chronicle the Dettori career as never before. The
son of a Milanese Classic-winning jockey has been Champion jockey
on three occasions and has ridden such equine superstars as Dubai
Millennium, Lochsong, Lammtarra, Daylami and his first Derby winner
Authorized. He made worldwide headlines when winning every contest
on a seven-race card in September 1996, which made him a household
name. The Dettori story has also had its darker side: surviving a
plane crash in 2000 in which the pilot was killed; a six-month
suspension in December 2012 for contravening racing's drugs rules;
losing the lucrative job as first jockey to Sheikh Mohammed's
Godolphin operation. But Frankie has always bounced back, and his
next flying dismount is never far away.
