About the Author

Frankie Dettori was born in Milan in December 1970. He was sent to Newmarket at the age of 16 by his father, Lanfranco, a former Italian champion jockey, where he worked as a bookie before being taken up by the trainer Luca Cumani. In 1990 he became the first teenager since Lester Piggott to ride 100 winners in a season. In the next ten years he became one of the most successful jockeys the flat has ever seen, and was awarded an MBE in 2000. He is currently the No 1 stable jockey for Godolphin. He has a wife, Catherine, and four children. Jonathan Powell is horse racing correspondent on the Mail on Sunday.

Reviews

‘An odds-on winner’ The Irish Field ‘He’s that rare thing in horseracing – a real superstar’ BBC ‘A gripping read that will prove a well-received Christmas present for anybody, whether a racing nut or not.' Horse & Hound 'A great read for anyone interested in racing.' Irish Independent 'Not since Lester Piggott stopped riding has racing been able to identify itself with a Christian name alone. Way beyond the confines of the betting office and the racetrack, people know who Frankie is.’ The Sunday Times
