Jockey is aware his emotions will be rampant at his final races in Britain on Saturday but is excited by the challenge of riding in America
“There will be tears,” Frankie Dettori exclaims softly as, with tangled emotions, he looks towards his last day of racing in Britain on Saturday. “It’s going to be difficult, because it’s my last goodbye, really, and I will shed tears of sadness and happiness.
“I know it will be the last time I’ll be walking to the jockeys’ room at Ascot, which is my favourite track, and I’ll walk out with amazing memories. It won’t be easy to separate the emotions and the riding.”
