Frankie Dettori's Surprise Announcement

Frankie Dettori, the legendary jockey, has made a stunning U-turn on his retirement plans. The 52-year-old Italian, who had originally announced that he would retire from horse racing at the end of the 2023 season, has now revealed that he will continue his career in America. Dettori made the announcement on social media, leaving fans shocked and excited for what's to come.

Not Ready to Say Goodbye

In a short video on Twitter, Dettori expressed his decision to prolong his career and race in the United States from next year. While his final race in Britain will be on Qipco British Champions Day at Ascot on October 21, Dettori is not yet ready to completely give up the sport. He stated that he is still enjoying riding and wants to continue on the international circuit for a while longer.

A Glittering Career

Dettori's decision to continue racing comes as no surprise, considering his incredible accomplishments in the sport. With 282 Group 1 race wins and over 20 British Classics under his belt, Dettori has solidified his place as one of the greatest jockeys of all time. His unforgettable 'Magnificent Seven' at Ascot in 1996 catapulted him into the spotlight and made him a household name.

Legendary at Royal Ascot

Throughout his career, Dettori has become synonymous with Royal Ascot. He has ridden an impressive 77 winners at the prestigious meeting, and his trademark flying dismount after each win has become iconic. Fans can look forward to seeing Dettori in action at Royal Ascot for a little while longer before he takes on new challenges in the United States.
