Freelance Frankie Springs The Gates
Frankie Dettori marked his first day in 18 years as a freelance rider with a winner, and celebrated in a manner usually reserved for events more prestigious than a mid-week Maiden. Dettori rode Goodwood Mirage to victory for trainer John Dunlop who endorsed the champion rider's calibre: "Frankie is not just world class, he's top of the world class. I'm sure he will be employed by many people with huge success for many years to come."
