"Great american golfer of the early twentieth century bobby jones remarked after you're watching jack nicklaus win the nineteen sixty five masters nicklaus played a game with which i am not familiar you could say the same for jockey frankie dettori tori who is having a year with which most racing observers are unfamiliar twelve group one wins already at the time of this recording and more than four months still left in the the year. Epa ties is now getting a split. He's running back while they on the outside. Brando has moved up advertised seeks to advertise takes the lead eight again and advertise came away to win advertise man of the mind that frankie dettori yet again dettori just four group one wins away from his best ever season two thousand one when he took sixteen considering what he's been through in his career and his age forty eight frankie's performance this year has been absolutely lutely remarkable. We'll get into all of that. As we welcome in a man who's had a pretty good see to watch several of dettori's group on wins this year veteran race caller richard hoiles oils who joins us once again here on the gate. One is struck you the most about the year that frankie has put together well to totally is confidence right. He's he's one of those. I'm sure you have the equivalent in in the u._s. When things begin to go well tori whether it be on a single card as in that day when he read the seven winners <hes> alaska ascot and when he had the first for the role meeting this year <hes> he really does seem to be able to ride to a different level. It's exactly the opposite when things go badly you know so you get the the trembling lip and the psyche so slightly sulky demeanour they just appears at this period which which really started with an awareness victory in the oaks has just laid to an astonishing level of performance in in the top races. Just okay the numbers. He's any twenty i in the junkies table in the u._k. In terms of number of winners he's any ash britain's thirty three winners in the u._k. And yet nine of those have been group one successes and if you were to rearrange the table on prize money he would be taught by over if a two million so. I think it's partly overseas writing very good horses which i'm sure we'll come on but it's also that innate competence which seems to be so important to the way that he rides well. That's a question that comes up both in horse racing and automobile racing is how much of his success is the writer and how much is the set of horses. He's been writing like enabling arlen stratovarius. I think that's a that's a fair now that he's not stick anyone in a nice call for you and certainly for me to one for europe you know most people you could win a mercedes for me the one guy lining up on the grid in that particular race there are a few races which dettori has one through pretty instant star catches is victory and the irish jokes where you stack them up and then ran away from them was was one of those but that he needs to be honest in the king george the thing too frank is he's not someone want to travel the length and breadth of the country looking small winners so it was important to him to have a big retainer. I used to be godolphin when he lets godolphin. Most people thought that would be the end of things and he's stumbled was good enough to get the cats at job at the right time when that sort of began to drift away is really the association with john gosden. That's taken things things to a new level. If you look at the twelve group one sees success these had in europe since the oaks in early june right the way through to the march instigate with advertise you'd go stratovarius as you mentioned you'd go to enable you had to dawn halts. He finally came to the party and won a couple of of group ones and and then scattered around you'd go go to coronet. You've got the ones that are still can't shoot. It's probably only gonna win one so yes it's definitely underpinned by having a good stable and but really able stratovarius the two that are underpinning success old. She's that a finding. We haven't got the younger who's coming speech then then so they're running runs heidi like it continued particularly with the naval your next week if she goes yorkshire so you could conceivably be talking about dettori writing fifteen fifteen group one winners twelve of them in the u._k. So it is already his most successful season for group one successes domestically. I was just looking okay again. Some of the numbers and if you had up the period between two thousand nineteen and twenty eight so in two thousand eight nine in twenty five seasons he only and he wrote in group one winners in total in that period and yet for many people that would have been almost successful period for me as a whole that it would be now in terms of winners but knowing at this late stage career is forty eight is quite astonishing. He did many sipping longtime ago nineteen ninety nine. There's no record ryan more trump top fifteen and seventeen but i suppose the other point to make his you made the point about the the top table eight named brian hasn't visited often often he often does in this country good three year olds and mike mcgraff is the anthony van dyck samosas happened gone on to be superstars and as a result the door has been left more than for for the golden rule is to sort of through so maybe that's the other side of the coin. Is that eight no brian. He's had a reasonable season but he hasn't dominated to the same degree as yes. He did the year when he record for the number of group one successes in in in twelve months right around the globe. I wanna go back to what you were saying about the the frankie dettori and godolphin for those of our listeners who don't remember frankie dettori had written exclusively for godolphin since nineteen ninety four when sheikh mohammed had started godolphin a dolphin that arrangement ended in two thousand twelve when to tori tested positive for cocaine. What thoughts did you have at that time about. Whether dettori would not just returned to the sport but returned to the pinnacle of the sport. I think many people thought that it was entirely questionable and to be fair if he founded for quite debates around the the twenty thirteen fourteen periods he was really saved by the introduction of because he was never going to cool boy he had the occasional ride but he wasn't certainly certainly going to have the quantity of rides that he'd he'd had through godolphin. The saving grace fahim was probably the beginning of the association with cats because he made noises about yeah. I'm gonna come back. I'm gonna compete for the title but those that know frankie no he just would not put in the miles and the dedication that's necessary. It's not like your system. You know in the estates where you based at the the one place period of time. It's the travel kills championship ambitions in this country. It's done by the number of wins so as a result the prize money honey. That's he's guiding through the big. Success is largely irrelevant. It's just one win of the same as it would be on a wet windy monday. Nights were hamilton dettori would never go for those sort of rights so i think many people felt that it would be a slow demise and probably the end <hes> but he stumbled across good horses at the right time and that that was important particularly i think old it was quite important in putting him back on the map with another dumpy win and a very very good ride in in new york and of course he was involved with other decent. These these cats are like travel initially even though that ended in tears as regards his association with her so he was saved really by his ability to put out big race successes but that period we mentioned twenty ten thirty two to twenty fourteen was really his barren spell in twenty-fifty things have really picked up a say go on how to do with that but obviously association with john gosden which came through likes the golden goose have been particularly significant and to your point. He's started just about a quarter of the number of races that ashim murphy has and yet as you say way ahead in the money total. We're talking with veteran british.
