Probably the most recognised man on horseback, the Italian-born jockey's ability in the saddle, cheeky good humour, immaculate dress sense and spectacular flying dismounts have made him a household name. Frankie Dettori had his heart set on a football career, but his 6th birthday present (a pony) kicked off is future in a different direction. In 1997 he became the first jockey to ride all seven winners at Ascot, cementing his reputation as one of the greatest jockeys of our time. Life for Frankie has been adventurous in and out of the saddle. Against the odds, he survived a horrifying plane crash and his near death experience inspired him to enjoy life to the full. A devoted family man, Frankie is a legend both on and off the racetrack. This intimate, no holds barred film reveals the intense training Frankie undergoes to remain at the top of his sport. It also features extremely rare footage from the jockeys changing rooms as well as an exclusive interview with Lester Piggott and Frankie Dettori.
