Frankie Dettori, the world's most famous jockey, had a stroll in the park on the anniversary of his memorable 25,095-1 Magnificent Seven. The renowned rider's latest triumph came at Newmarket, where he effortlessly guided Trawlerman to victory in a three-runner race. The favorite, sent off at 1-5 odds, cruised home by 18 lengths, leaving the competition in the dust.
An Easy Win for Dettori
Dettori's latest triumph was a far cry from his historic achievement at Ascot 27 years ago. His record-breaking performance back then saw him win all seven races in a single day, a feat never repeated since. However, his recent victory on Trawlerman was almost too easy, with one punter describing it as "the easiest winner Frankie will ever ride in his life!" Everyone agrees that this win was a walk in the park for the legendary jockey.
A Dominant Display
Trawlerman, owned by Godolphin and trained by John & Thady Gosden, made it two wins in as many weeks. Just two weeks ago, the stunning stayer triumphed by 13 lengths at Salisbury, leaving his competitors trailing behind. This time, his victory margin was even larger, a massive 18 lengths. It was truly a dominant display that showcased Trawlerman's incredible talent.
No Challenge for Dettori
Dettori, 52, had a leisurely ride on Trawlerman and never had to push the horse to its limits. The jockey, known for his success in the prestigious Arc race, acknowledges that he won't have it as easy in the upcoming event. With six wins in the race to his name, Dettori is no stranger to success in the Arc. However, his mount, Free Wind, faces stiff competition, with Ace Impact boasting odds of 3-1 as the favorite. British rider Jim Crowley and his horse Hukum, with odds of 11-2, may also pose a formidable challenge.
The Easiest Win of All Time
Dettori's recent victory on Trawlerman will go down in history as one of his easiest wins. Fans marveled at his effortless performance, likening it to an "exercise canter" and stating that it was simply "too easy." With his exceptional talent, the legendary jockey continues to add to his impressive list of triumphs, leaving racing enthusiasts in awe.
