After almost 30 years in racing, Frankie Dettori has seen it all. Arriving at Luton airport at the age of 14 with no English and a tag around his neck like Paddington Bear, Dettori soon found fame and success in and out of the saddle. Having become the first teenaged jockey since Lester Piggott to win more than 100 races in a season, he went on to ever greater success, reaching a peak when (uniquely in racing history) he won all seven races on the card at Ascot in September 1996. Famous for his flying dismounts after winning a race, he quickly became a housewife's and punter's favorite—the one modern jockey to transcend the sport. He has won all the big races, and has a knack of developing a superb relationship with his horses that ensures he gets the best out of them, often storming to the front in the final few strides. In this fascinating memoir, Dettori recalls the great races and horses, and reveals the truth about his work with the trainers and owners who have supported him. Dettori has always lived life to the full—now he is sharing his remarkable story with all those who have followed his career to date.
