Frankie has announced that 2023 is to be his final year riding and is undertaking a world racing ‘farewell’ tour which will see him riding in a number of countries.

Frankie Dettori is a true champion and a living legend within his own sport of horseracing. Having ridden winners in every racing country around the world he made history at Ascot on 28th September 1996 when he rode every winner on the seven race card for his very own ‘Magnificent Seven’.
Frankie has now smashed almost all known horse racing records with over 70 victories at Royal Ascot alone. He has won the Ascot Gold Cup 3 times and become the highest winning jockey in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.
“Dettori was just brilliant, playing with the field on the front-end and messing around with the pace of the race like a kid with Play-Doh.“
Frankie has now ridden over 2,000 winners and has also expanded his career to the small screen having made many appearances on television at the highest level and has also been a Co-host on the BBC’s ‘A Question of Sport’. He lives in Newmarket, Suffolk with his wife Catherine and their five children Leo, Ella, Mia, Tallulah and Rocco.
In 2021, for the third year running, Frankie was officially named the world’s best jockey on Tuesday, a title based on jockeys’ performances in the 100 highest-rated Group One and Grade One races around the globe in 2020.
