Frankie Dettori achieved a near-impossible feat when winning all seven races on the card at Ascot in September 1996, including winning the prestigious Queen Elizabeth II Stakes.
A day racing fans will never forget – Frankie Dettori’s Magnificent 7. The cumulative odds of these wins was 25,051-1, and earned one lucky punter an incredible £500,000 when Dettori went through the card.
This was a landmark day for British horseracing, and made a hero of Dettori, while stripping stunned bookmakers of millions. He was already a well-known jockey before the Magnificent Seven, but the achievement made him a household name.
