Dettori's antics ruin Derby day

Published 12/06/2015

The Epsom Derby is and always will be the greatest flat classic race in the world.

But last Saturday afternoon's race was, for me, demeaned by the antics of the winning rider.

Frankie Dettori is undoubtedly a good jockey, but doesn't compare to the inimitable Lester Piggott, who rode nine Epsom Derby winners.
