Horse racing: Dettori wins Derby

  • Intro:

    Frankie Dettori, taking part for the first time in four years, wins the Derby on favourite Golden Horn.


    Frankie Dettori capped his renaissance with a thrilling victory on favourite Golden Horn to win the 236th running of the Derby at Epsom.

    Dettori produced an ice-cool ride on the 13-8 favourite to beat his John Gosden-trained stablemate Jack Hobbs by three-and-a-half lengths, with Storm The Stars third.

    The 44-year-old jockey punched the air as he passed the line and did a trademark flying dismount in the winner's enclosure.

    In his 20th Derby ride, it was a second victory in the race for the Italian-born rider, who triumphed for the first time at the 15th attempt on Authorized in 2007.

    He bided his time before pouncing in the final furlong to deny Hobbs, ridden by William Buick, who was running in the colours of Dettori's former long-time employers Godolphin.

    Dettori powering clear for a dominant victory to spark emotional scenes.
